    Not quite adequate, missing many definitions that are in the hardbound version. When I am looking up words I usually find this dictionary app lacking and have to go online to find the words or use another dictionary app.
  • Indispensable tool !

    This app begs you to rate it pretty much every time you open it. On top of it, the dictionary seems to lack quite a bit.

    Although I gave 5 star before, now I am giving you one star because recently the crazy application has been asking me quite few times to vote for it!
