Almost perfect peacemaker

I have relied on this app for years now. I recently noticed some omissions, such as orthotic, so not quite perfect. However, the detail on the derivations and evolution of words and usage has enlightened many spiky disputes peacefully.

First class.

One app that has been on my iPad 3 since it was new, never been deleted. Some apps just shine with quality. Would recommend highly.

WordBook

Makes it so easy to find the meaning of words, always have my IPad next to whatever I'm reading.
