Ratings and Reviews
Solid Reference Tool
After the American Heritage iOS dictionary crashed and burned I looked for a quality replacement. After a couple of experiments with others, I came upon the Collins dictionary. Its intuitive interface takes you to authoritative information. So my search has a very happy ending.
It is my go-to dictionary, used throughout every day.
Interesting features to explore such as anagrams, leading to expanding vocabulary
Word of the day needs improvement
I love the depth of regional, archaic, slang, informal, and other usages covered. The fact that is downloaded and therefore always available is another huge plus.
