What's New in Version 7.4.5
Having used & been quite satisfied w/this app since it first came out I was unprepared for the egregious error I saw this morning when checking on the definition/word usage for “retribution.” Seeing the word, “deserts” vs. “desserts” in the definition/explanation of the word usage for “retribution” stopped me cold! I hope “Dictionary” will make the necessary correction(s) to this entry (& any other(s) that may be necessary) & in the future check & double-check, & if necessary, triple check the entries in this invaluable tool that so many people depend upon.
I purchased this app during college and still us it today. I still find myself inserting different words into my vocabulary each day or week. Plus it has the words of the day which are very interesting.
I have challenge my students to download this app and make it useful in the vocabulary as well as her life.
Adore this app...
It's so handy.I love that I can switch between dictionary to thesaurus. It would've been annoying to switch between two large books when I can just tap my screen. My generation has got it goooood
