this dictionary is brilliant, it does the obvious basics in that it allows you to look words up, if you input an incorrect spelling it will give you a list of "did you mean", it will then give you the obligatory meaning or meanings you also get a phonetic breakdown for pronounciation you can also choose to hear the word spoken.
You can then choose to use the built in theasaurus which is handy to.

This is a great app. It's easy to use and versatile. The thesaurus section is huge, really comprehensive and you can use it contemporaneously (see what I mean?) with another task.

This dictionary app is really good when connected to Wi-Fi. However doesn't work without it! Would be great if they could make it without it.

This is not a proper English dictionary but an american biased one. If you type in an american spelling you are lucky to get a reference to the English at the bottom, but English spellings have the american version listed straight away.

Very disappointed that this dictionary app is American, not English. Very basic, for instance, although it contains "chock" meaning a block used as a wedge, it does not include "chocks away" which came into use during the war when the chock was used to secure aircraft in place before taking off. Some of the words it says people get confused are basic school errors, so unless you are an American school child, I'd say don't bother, find an English one that can spell colour, flavour, licence (noun) and license (verb) correctly.

Amazing app! Its off line. It gives perfect definitions. It provides synonyms and antonyms. It has audible pronounciaton. It translates to different languages. Unlike the other dictionaries like (oxford ,Cambridge) this app doesn't cost. Don't buy those expensive ones since its a rip off. This app provides much more.
Helps me alot when I'm doing my homework📚📚:-) 😁😁

This is an exceptional resource for exploring words, their meanings, their origins and alternative choices.

It must be said though that I would not recommend it as a spelling checker for children or others, who are new to or coming to terms with UK English, as it steers any spelling attempts towards the American equivalents. This could easily result in bad spelling habits.

For other purposes, the dictionary, which also acts as a thesaurus, represents a useful and fascinating facility.

It is a particular asset that it also has an option to download the dictionary/thesaurus, which makes it accessible offline as well as online. I suspect that this is a recent addition, as other reviews have referred to the fact that it only works when online.
