While the description is correct in calling this out as a thesaurus the image is of Webster's dictionary. This is not a dictionary at all, and IMO it's not a great thesaurus either. Pass unless your desperate. I'm a professional writer and I was hoping to buy a good little dictionary for use on my iPad, but it seems as though I'll be going the Kindle route and not the iBooks way.
The first letter or two letters of each entry are missing! So 'abate' is listed as 'ate' in the thesaurus! What good is a thesaurus where you can't find the words you're looking up? This is based on the Free Sample download... Please fix!
