Fine dictionary

Good, succinct electronic dictionary. For a "wordy" like me it could absorb as much time as I allow it to. It's not intended to replace the huge volumes that many of us still dust off from time to time, but it's vastly more handy. Well worth the download.

using your dictionary

I have only had this app for a few days, but as an older man, 64, I'm a terrible speller and my (. , : ; ' " etc.) I just spent about 30 minutes trying to find that word, it starts with a "P" and ends with an "N", about it's about 8 or 9 letter long, but I, it wouldn't give me usable suggestion. I also don't know if it is connected to my "Word" writing program. With all of that in mind, I'm quite sure you'll understand why I'm looking for a new Dictionary program. I am writing a book right now and because of all my own problems, I need a dictionary that will really help me write. I am 100% Disabled Vietnam Combat Veteran, with a spinal cord injury. It is so bad that even after a surgery in 1996, I have to walk with crutches. It has affected my whole body, I can only type with one hand that is one finger at a time, I can use the other hand to shift, but that is it. Well guys, that's it, so thanks for the try, I hope this will help you set a better app. Thanks, Bob

Dictionary

This app is efficient. The free version has adds, but they are not too bad. Windows doesn't have a built-in dictionary like Apple so this is the best option. Besides, you get to learn new stuff every day when you open it. It is very informative.

Great app!

Easy to use and includes the spelling corrector. It also gives good encyclopedic definitions as well. Built in games are great too. Works with no internet.
