It is ok, Could be better

Definitions are lacking at times. Interface is functional but lacks the polish one would expect from a product that costs this much.

First let me say how FRUSTRATED I am that my children, who have Kindle Fires, get a TON of stuff for free and "nook" makes you pay for 95% of everything (and I have recommended Kindle's to everyone who asks). But I would've thought that with how much this dictionary costs it would be more thorough, I play "Words with Friends" and all the words I didn't recognize, that people have played, were no where in here, yet legally played in the game. I guess for less obscure words it works, but I thought it was a "Collegiate" edition.

    Pretty useful at first try

    The app store download a small program which at first run gives you the ability to download the offline dictionary. This can several minutes is you are on a slow network. The advertised search and filter appear to work. Pretty much what I wanted.

    Not worth buying

    Not what I expected, should have believed the other reviewers. I have the same Dictionary (by title) on an old Palm and really liked it. This version is so scaled back I almost never use it.

    Noah Webster

    Would be disapointed in this version of his dictionary. Too many words not represented.
