A Great App!

Wordweb Dictionary is brilliant! I use it while reading to check up words that I'm not sure of the full meaning and as a Thesaurus while writing. As a bonus it has a great facility to randomly generate a word or common word and give the meaning. Even when reading a description you can tap on any word you're not sure of and get a full explanation of the meaning.

Fixed the ios8 bug

Had this app on iPad since buying it. Invaluable. So when ios8 update cocked it up was a bit miffed but the developer kept his word and in no time had fixed the problem. Had to zap a few apps because of the update so real chuffed this ones ok.

It's free, waw

It's really good. Gives you almost every thing you want from d dictionary, besides you don't have to spend money on other applications.
The only thing it's missing is vocals. Or how to pronounce the word. Other than that it's good
