    The App is really good and has the only drawback - it requires internet connection (even without pictures) so I can't use it in the subway, for example.

    Simply the BEST dictionary.
  • by Matthew 2/4/2015
    A little disappointed. Where are all the adjectival forms, etc? Word variations don't show up?
  • by Eric 2/3/2015
    Quick, convenient, and concise. Tap words in the definitions to look them up. Well worth the price--support Windows Phone development!
