Why do you want Facebook when you're using a dictionary? I just want to look up a word and get back to what I'm doing. I don't need all these unnecessary features bloating up the interface. Collins really has made the simple task of looking up a word so complicated. Uninstalled immediately.

Best Dictionary/Thesaurus in the Store!

This is hands down the best dictionary/thesaurus app in the store. It has many many features, is fast and responsive on my surface, and has great entries.

Good app but...

How can "analyze" be not found?

Why does this app need permission to modify my contacts?
