Nice and easy to use
Handier and faster than searching a physical dictionary plus bonus mind games
Very useful app.
I have really enjoyed having a dictionary, thesaurus at my finger tips. I find it very useful because I write a lot of hand written correspondence having the app. assists me greatly. The word of the day is great and allows me to expand my vocabulary.
