Great thesaurus, good dictionary, but annoying bits

Very concise dictionary, too much so with a few words. Thesaurus is great, lots of choices. Favorites list disappears after awhile which is frustrating when busy and using it as a reminder. A garish and obnoxious ratings add pops up regularly which is distracting and irritating and you have to click it to close it, with no choice to turn it off. For costing $30 I’m a little disappointed overall, since the price was far above other apps I assumed the entire quality would also be far above, not just a little above, average. On the plus side, it doesn’t have outdated references to bible and Shakespeare quotes for examples of modern language, like Merriam-Webster, which is the reason I switched from that app. If the pop up rating ad and the vanishing Favorites list were fixed I’d give it a 5 star rating.

Don’t buy

This update ruined an otherwise excellent app. Who needs to be reminded of the last word they looked up? Or word of the day? Or invite friends? Or ads for other products?
Try looking up “dog” and you’ll get a few synonyms. The previous version listed all the breeds as well. Same for “cars”, “countries” and any other noun for a group.
This version is totally useless so I am stuck on OS 10 with the previous version. The sad thing is they could have kept the original database.
