Nifty Teasure

I love that I don't need wifi. I read everyday and I need an app that can keep pace wherever I happen to be reading, this app does so fairly well. The clean interface is also a bonus, I love the color.

Excellent app

This app is fantastic value I would have paid more! The clarity of the user interface is matched by the definitions, which show exactly how a word is used, including examples where appropriate. Very easy to use.

No Sync Across Devices

I would like my money back. I needed an app that can sync saved vocabulary words across devices.
