Customer Reviews

Wow, amazing, never knew there were so many meanings for one acronym.

I am getting up in years and I seem to have forgotten a large number of the acronyms that I used with associates and friends on a regular basis. You will not believe how good one feels when they can still communicate at the level they once were accustomed to using without that puzzled look on their face.

Awesome App

Truly an amazing and extremely useful app!!! I'm thrilled to FINALLY not have to ask my 21yr old sister what most slang acronyms stand for!!!

Only wish I was able to add this app to my Keyboards & wish you were able to view a list (dictionary format ) of all acronyms subdivided by category!!!

Great App

I work with a lot of DOD (military) customers and they love their acronyms.
This app finds all but the very newest. I think there is a department within the DOD who's job is to come up with new acronyms. Staying on top of new acronyms is next to impossible.
Outstanding job!
