Wrong Purchase!

This is a terribly limited thesauras and dictionary. It is hard to navigate and in general, it has a really poor UI. It also fails to offer you enough freedom to control the applications appearance.
I purchased the full thing, for I believe approximately $14, and it was a total waste — a big mistake!
