The best dictionary app I have used to date
This is the best Dictionary, Thesaurus and vocabulary apps I have used to date. Have had a few minor crashing issues in the past but, nothing the last few months. This app is great I wish it could integrated into mail and some other apps. The word of the day is prodigious asset. For years I have had a extensive unabridged hard cover $600 dictionary on a pedestal in my sunroom I use to highlight a different word each day. With this app I now get two. Keep making improvements worth every cent of $10, you get all the information of an unabridged dictionary and copious amount of additional information. And before anyone makes a crass comment about highlighting a fine dictionary I use a special archival highlighter. It is meant to be used not collect dust. Just like this app. Use it to appreciate it.
I love this app. Most of the words that I look up are found with no problem and the definitions are pretty accurate. I also get much use from the synonym feature. I was pleasantly surprised by the voice feature where I speak a word to do a search. It has about an 80% accuracy rate so it's not as useful as it could be but still I like this feature.
Nothing really more to add. The app continues to very useful, especially when I encounter new words. I continue to have a high regard for this app.
This Dictionary is the go to place to find any words. If you can not spell the word. Do your best and you will receive a list of words to choose from. If you still can not figure it out try putting in a word that means the same. Like a synonym, then you can look under that particular word list of synonyms. Wallah there is the word you had wanted to use. Great programs and they have a slew more programs besides just a dictionary. Try them all, wow
