Very annoying, badly-made search functionality. After you type in first two letters of a word you want to look up, the app hides the keyboard, and pulls up whatever word was under your finger. ? Developers should look into keeping the keyboard on the screen while generating potential search results while the user types. Everything else about the app is fine.

The database is great - it's the interface that ruins this app. Each word in the hair-trigger thesaurus links to a new list, and the back button exits to the home screen. The only way to get back to the word you were on is to swipe all the way back through your history and hope the overly sensitive links don't hurt you again. It's distracting, which absolutely shouldn't happen with a tool meant for keeping you in a creative flow. Please fix.

Noah Webster would be proud of he were around today to see this app in action. The "extras" like word of the day and games are entertaining and fun. While "the guts" are simple and easy to use. I find the pronunciation clips very useful and the word history fascinating and intriguing. Also includes a thesaurus which is convenient.
