    Used to be 5-Star useful. Recently, however, finding the right word has become more difficult. Suggestions feature very limited. Example: if I entered “op” I used to get a list of all the words beginning with “op.” Now I get only a very few suggestions.

    Definition also needs to have an example of word being used properly.

    Speaking as a professional writer who relies on tools like this. I’ve spent at least several hours attempting to find a reliable Oxford English Dictionary. But every app that Mobisystems makes is designed so poorly that I have resorted to physical print dictionary. Examples: the dedicated button on the upper right that directs you to buy more Mobisystems apps. The frequent (every time I open the app) Rate Us 5 Stars prompts. Inconsistent offline functionality. Invite your friends (does anyone every tap that?). This is such a useful tool that would be even more so as an app. Please lose some of the self-promotion and focus on making it cleaner. We will pay for that.

    The best dictionary of the English language, in the palm of your hand. Too bad they couldn’t do this with the unabridged OED2.
