    Although this is somewhat good, but like all the other ads they want to dip in your pocket to get rid of them.

    By DocCoach
    Its as close as my iPhone and I use it several times each week. Being a writer, I especially like the instant access to the thesaurus. Highly recommend this app.

  • So Far So Good🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

    By Dayi~In~Gaming
    So far so good...... it gives clear definitions, and very good ones indeed. This is my #1 dictionary app when I don’t have a ancient dictionary😂. But seriously, Thus is an amazing app so far. I haven’t had to pay for anything yet, but I might have too. Also, no app/game is perfect
