Ratings and Reviews
This app is an asset for prompt and good reference when reading and editing any material. It good investment to pay for and one does not have to connect to the internet because the app is installed on your device.
Hands down the most neatly designed and elegant dictionary app available.
Only improvements I'd wish to see would be the search button relocated to the bottom of the screen where it can easily be accessed with either left or right hand, with 'add' and 'bookmarks' moved to its right, (current 'info' tab is a complete waste of space where it is now); and that the word search functionality could be built into spotlight search directly if iOS permits it.
A fine addition to any phone.
