    Everything I need it to be.
  • OK, but...

    By Gethin C.
    Good dictionary app. Has almost everything you would want a dictionary app to have, but for the $15 price — there really should be a feature that speaks out the correct pronunciation of the word. That seems like a pretty standard function on most other free dictionary apps.

  • Very good all-purpose dictionary

    By Bel Gufo
    Its special strength is the etymologies, which often trace the history of a word back to its Indo-European roots and include cognate words derived from the same root so that, for example, one learns that the word “hundred” is related to the Latin and Sanskrit words for the number as well as to the English word “read”. If you enjoy etymology, you can spend many happy hours chasing a word around the dictionary.
