    I haven't seen a better one

    I'd give it five stars for design and ease-of-use. My disappointments are in the poor quality of thesaurus word lists and the air-headed, newly fasioned, trendy, word-of-the day. Why not give us words that might be of interest to someone who is interested in words?

    Jolly good and simple. Bing translation doesn't work, but Google does. Nokia Lumia 530 Cyan.
