The option to download a map o that later you can use it, even when not in range of WiFi, makes this a really useful application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel smug about your use of Englsih!, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book came as an eye-opener to me. I thought I knew a fair bit about English (I not only speak it like a native, I am a native!) but Mr Ritchie showed me how much more I know than I realized. He treats the subject with wit and his examples are themselves a source of amusement. He tends to grind on a bit about academic squabbles but I can forgive that for the plusses he gives us.

The Kindle edition, which I used, suffers from a slight problem in tat the tables which are used now and then do not always retain the proper formatting.

I bought this hoping to have a compact overview of the States of America but it seems to me that several compact.

I was looking for a good history of the American civil war and I came across this which does the job. It is illustrated, mostly by pictures of the generals involved, but badly lacks maps of the States and of the battlefields.

3.0 out of 5 stars An old style amateur detective, 15 Jun 2013

This is a series of short stories reminiscent of the Father Brown series but here with an Anglican priest as the sleuth. The stories are set in mid 20th century and will bring not-so-fond recollections to those who lived through those times.

Apart from a slight reservation about the way questions/problems are to be entered I have no problems with this app. I am amazed at the breadth of problems it can handle.

Because it doesn't load! There are two apps with this title and while one is OK and worth having, the other won't load and so is a waste of money.

This, and its companion, are wonderfully relaxing. The game is played at the pace you want so there is no stress. The music is also very relaxing.

This is a good version of openings. Good players will no doubt find the engine lacking but beginners will find that they can occasionally win!
