There are also standard bookmark, recent word and random word features. No Internet connection is required.

Ratings and Reviews
Very efficient interface, and great Chambers content
These WordWeb dictionaries (Chambers Thesaurus in this case) are basically an exceptional replacement for the built-indictionaries in MacOS. The content is very well organanized, and the interface is up-to-date with the latest improvements in MacOS. As far as content, it does not get any better than Oxford and Chambers. Of course it would be amaziang to have the entire Oxford English Dictionary, but that license is impossible to obtain and would cost $1,000. But for everyday use this is a fantastic set of products. If you have not looked, check out the other offerings by this developer. I have used these WordWeb softwares for 9 years (since 2009) before they were on the App Store. They are truly excellent for writers, academics, and other researchers. Fast, efficient with good content. (I am also putting this review on the other WordWeb App Store products I own, because they really are part of an integrated product.)
I Really Like it.
It does what it needs to and it does it very well. Launches fast and has a very simple interface. When I need to find a replacement for a word - BOOM - I have many choices. Great application.
Doesn’t work. Don’t buy it.
