Best dictionary for my iphone and PC laptop
Best dictionary app out there. I'm a long time user of the Windows version of this app. I'm glad they have it for ios devices too.
I like this dictionary because this app gives me some useful information bout words that others do not give.
be aware of in-app purchases
The application is good. But you will have to pay for Thesaurus and Chambers dictionary. Now it becomes expensive. Somehow the developer managed to hide in-app purchases from Apple so that you don't see this "feature" until you install the app.
