    At last a truly comprehensive, usable, thesaurus app.
  • Not as advertised

    Not sure where the good reviews are coming from, but reading though these I see I’m not the only one scratching my head. Clunky, incomplete, all but worthless as a dictionary and completely worthless as a thesaurus. In fact, the only place I’ve been able to find anything related to what I would call a “Thesaurus” is on the icon for the App. It sure isn’t actually, you know, within the app itself.
  • It is not a good thesaurus

    It is not a comprehensive, or well-thought out reference book. I love the Webster's New World Dictionary and I use it frequently. Thinking this could not be bad, I bought it, but I was mistaken. There are many thesauruses in the market but, for the iPad there are none. You would be better of with a comprehensive dictionary with built in thesaurus such as Oxford American Dictionary or AHD 5 deluxe version. AHD Fifth Edition has been extremely buggy though.
  • Nice synonym dictionary

    Great reference.
  • Dictionary pretending to be a thesaurus

    Usually disappointing to use. This is one of the few apps I've purchased and it isn't worth the dollars. The icon says thesaurus but inside the app it only calls itself a dictionary so you're always wondering if you're in a thesaurus. Still wondering?! And there aren't a lot of words - Two out of three words I look up aren't even listed. Shame. Real hard cover Roget is amazing.
  • Don’t buy it

    This is the second app I’ve purchased, Webster/Roget is identical to the Oxford. Both are useless if you’ve graduated elementary school. Although both are advertised as a Thesaurus, neither are.
