Embarrassed. Adjective. Us when we realized the medical and science dictionary went AWOL. We're very sorry, and don't worry: We brought it back.

Pretty Good

A useful app, only thing I don’t like is that it comes up with suggestions that aren’t in this dictionary. Otherwise very useful.

An added feature could make it great

A useful app, easy to use. And I really like the word of the day that pops up when you first open your iPad. One major complaint however. When Word of the Day comes up there is no definition. If you click on the word, rather than taking you to the definition it takes you to the app, generally to your last accessed page. If you then click in Daily, you get not that word but the next day's word. So you need to do a search to get the definition.

I really like this Word of the Day feature but it needs to be much more user friendly. Simply have it go to the definition of that word when clicked on! Otherwise it's a useful app and I recommend it.
