So much potential, please keep improving!
Okay so I don't usually write app reviews but I am hoping I get lucky and my feedback is heard bc this app could be perfect and amazingly useful with just a few small but detrimental changes, I want this app to be my one go to when writing and it's so close if... 1) there was a small spot to write a note, a sticky note would be amazing
2) the rhyming lists were complete! I constantly catch numerous words that were somehow looked over instead it says no available rhymes for this word, c'mon that's lame! Please fix!
3) the dictionary, example sentence and almost all the add ons are a total rip off and an insult to your customers (I unfortunately bought every one took one look and then immediately regretted each purchase) but I just can't delete yet bc I love the concept so much and if the dictionary add on wasn't a scam and actually worked it would be huge!
Please fix/update and if gladly give 5 stars! Oh and it would be nice to be able to move around/edit/organize the starred word list!
Love the presentation but would like more content
The one thing I hate most about thesaurus apps is that they just throw all the together in one messy paragraph. T-Rex is refreshing in its approach, the adjustable list format is brilliant and it's my go to app.
However, the volume of suggestions offered doesn't even come close to the "English Thesaurus" app, so if I'm not satisfied with T-Rex's suggestions, I fire that one up.
It would be nice to have it all in one app but we don't live in a perfect world. ;) Both apps are reasonable priced and make for a great combination - one for quick, convenient lookups and the other for an in-depth lookup. I recommend getting both.
Well designed but thin content
I want to like this app, but as a pure thesaurus this app is weak, and the rhyme add-on is beyond weak. I can think of more rhymes off of the top of my head than this provides. The design is mostly good, though.
Here are a few suggestions:
Add a wider range of synonyms, and add a section for loosely related words.
Add the pronunciation option for the word the user is looking up.
Add definitions for favorite words, and beef up the favorites feature in general.
Add better definitions.
Add many more rhymes to the rhyme upgrade.
Overall, this app has lot of potential, but as it stands, it's not worth $3, and the rhyme upgrade is worthless. That you charge $2 for that is ridiculous.
