Solid app, does what you'd want it to, though it has the worst sample sentences I've ever seen in a dictionary.

With one tap you can switch back and forth between thesaurus and dictionary, without a separate menu like's app. And tapping on words brings up their entry. The dictionary is super-fast and thorough, but repetitive (it checks about fifteen sources and displays them all even when they say the same thing). Yay for apps that meet my needs :P

I like the format, but many English words are not in dictionary. I found another dictionary app that works better and has more detailed definitions. This usually has 3-5 word definition for words. App always worked.
