    Very expensive, doesn't even integrate with Nook reader

    I paid $20 for this lousy thing, and it's not even an option for use on the Nook Reader.

    Very useful

    While this does not have every word ever created, it gives decent definitions and is easily navigated. It works quite well on Nook HD+. I play Words with Friends and though I won't use it to find a word to play, I have used it to find out what some words mean that have been played. Only one word that Words accepted I couldn't find, so that's pretty good. I will definitely keep this in my library.
