A rich source of information
I always like it when an iPhone app has a separate user interface customized for the iPad.
This is a pretty comprehensive dictionary of financial terms. Because it has over 8,000 terms and 18,000 hyperlinks in the upgraded version, I was expecting there to be some sluggishness. But there was none perceptible on my iPad. I also like the large font format for the iPad version. Makes it easier to read.
I also like the search functionality, which lets me quickly get to the term I am interested in .
I like to keep this handy on my iPad for quick searches when in doubt. It really has come in handy. Thank!
