Ratings and Reviews



I was hoping to not have to carry my hard cover black's dictionary around with me, but it definitely seems as though I'm going to have to after downloading this app. I went through a list of contract terms that I have for class, and I would say there were only 20% of them available in the app. Very, very disappointing. Some of the free dictionaries have a better selection that this one. Looks like I'll be breaking my back carrying around black's........

Horrible Application!

I wish there was some way to give this application a negative star rating, but alas you are required to give it a star. If I was able to give it negative stars, I would take it all the way to 11. This application is a scam. A law dictionary that doesn't define, "reasonable person" is like a regular dictionary that does not define, "word."
