What is it?
► This is an offline dictionary and thesaurus app with good size database and easy to understand definitions.

Pro:
► No Internet connection needed – specially handy when use in iPad without 3/4G or WiFi connection
► More “multiple words” definitions than other dictionaries such as “free agent”, “free-thinking” and “free central placentation”.
► Easy to understand definition – many dictionaries define word or phrase with uncommon words, but this is not the case in this dictionary.
► Clean layout – synonym, antonym, and similar words are placed right below definitions
► All words are tapable – when you tap on any word, this app will search on its database right away
► History and favorites help find words faster

Con:
► Although it has 150,000 words in its database, a few simple words are not included. For example, there is no definition on “something”, “during” and “else”.
► No pronunciation on words – it should include optional pronunciation feature when Internet connection is available.

In-App Ad:
► None
