Chambers is the single-volume international English dictionary with the widest coverage of all the riches of the English language. Clear, accurate and occasionally witty definitions, with the latest new words from science, technology and contemporary culture.

This 13th Edition reflects the changes in our language, with special attention paid to new words that have emerged, new uses of old words and the most up-to-date pronunciation. The 13th Edition includes over 260,000 distinct words, compounds, phrases and derived forms.

The intelligent word entry suggests possible correct spellings as you type, as well as listing words that sound the same or are often confused. Search features include:

- Alphabetical listing
- Spelling suggestions
- Sounds-like and often-confused
- Fast pattern-matching search (*, ?, vowel and consonant)
- Filter search results by noun, verb, adjective, adverbs
- Customize search options (case, derived forms, etc)
- Anagrams

There are also standard bookmark, recent word and random word features. No Internet connection is required, and it supports Split View and Slide over for use with other apps on iPad.

The Chambers Dictionary is treasured by word-lovers and crossword enthusiasts for its majestic coverage of English and its tradition of sneaking in a sprinkling of light-hearted definitions. Alone among the single-volume dictionaries, it preserves a rich stock of words from our literary heritage as well as covering all the latest developments in contemporary English.

Chambers Thesaurus is also available as a separate app, and can easily be cross-referenced from the dictionary. Our WordWeb, Chambers, Collins and Oxford dictionaries are also available separately for Windows and Mac desktop.

Very useful

Chambers is one of the oldest dictionary companies and this dictionary includes many words you won't find in similar dictionaries, especially from non-English (Scottish, US, Aust) English and older words. Definitions are short but adequate. The software has wildcard and hyperlinking features. Definitely useful as a second dictionary. The printed version is a little bigger than the concise Oxford or Collins.

Where is random word feature?

Love chambers dictionary and its crisp definitions. But where is the random work feature for the app? Or even word of the day feature?

Worth the wait and the money

At last! Crossword enthusiasts and lovers of words will be delighted. Expensive but worth it for the content.
It is simple, clean, fast, good layout. The search facility is excellent- as a substitute for page-flicking it makes it very easy to find elusive words -it even tempts crossword-solvers to cross the boundary into cheating! The Chambers Dictionary is second to none -all we need now is Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. Excellent addition to iPhone Apps.
