The best there ever is!!!!!
I've been using this app right from day 1 when I bought this phone......it was almost 4 years ago before joining my surgery postgraduation......
I'm so much used to it that , despite losing my phone once and formatting the phone twice , I still tend to download it for sure.......
Even closing my eye , I can put my finger on the app....tht is much much im addicted to it.....
I feel it's not the right way to compare apps of one category to another S everyone have their own importance.....but I would say that , in my opinion , it's the best English dictionary .....even if a new app is created better than this, I'll still stuck to it
Best offline dictionary - and its free!
A very good offline dictionary. Clean interface, easy to navigate between words. And its free! What more could you ask for???
I've been using this app since i had an ipod and i should say this is the most easiest dictionary one can ever find.. This deserves a five star
