Best Dictionary App!
So I recently switched phones and forgot what this app was called. I downloaded different dictionaries and they were all confusing. This app shows synonyms and opposites with the definition. The words are clear and not all over the place. It's simple and easy to use.
This app not only offers a wide range of services but it's also FREE. I can search obscure words with a system unique to this great dictionary with great ease. Anyhow, just as the title goes, splendid user experience. Recommended for everyone.
I was looking for an app to simply check the spelling of a word. Nothing fancy. I start keying in the word and options come up. As well as the definition. It is exactly what I was looking for. Very happy with this app. And it is FREE!
