    Highly dependable and efficient, it’s one of the first dictionaries to use real-life language usage in its creation. I strongly recommend it.

    This app just great. However, I’d like to see the Word of the Day, instead of having the same word for each row, it would be much better if the word on lower row of the Word of the Day give a explaination somthat the user do not have to tap the section to see the explaination. A different color theme option would be much better, and I know it is a easy thing to be done :)

    Refreshing unabridged dictionary. I rarely need the vocabulary contained in briefer versions, so it's useful to have...everything.
