    It's a good dictionary, but it's a much better app! Loads really fast and you'll reach your word in a instant(faster than any other dictionary on the store*). One of the few free dictionaries that offer offline word lookup. Love it!

    I like this app! It has a bunch of random words in the opening screen that seem uncommon. At least, to me, they're uncommon. You can learn from it! ^-^

    I like the numerous words that come up. Especially if I am unsure of the spelling.

    Best dictionary app I've ever had. The fact that they have random selections of less known words on the homepage is a definite plus
