the best and most helpful dictionary/thesaurus
This is the best and most helpful dictionary/thesaurus app I've found. Well worth the additional cost. Useful in helping me find alternative words to use in my writings.
Very disappointed that the audio portion appears to work (spinning icon) but cannot be heard. This was not the case prior to the last update. The audio on iPhone app for this product does work following update. I have deleted and reloaded multiple times to no avail.
At update, I got less features and surprise! Advertising!! The thesaurus disappeared and ads appeared. Not cool!
