I've been using another dictionary app on iPhone but decided to try something new when I switched to android. Used this app two times n I am loving it n purchased upgrade without hesitation. The UI on the other app was definitely more sophisticated but I love how simple and even bit imature this UI looks. Fun. Also the definitions seem very detailed.

Amazing depth of vocabulary.Fast response and offers suggestions if you mispell a word. Links to literary texts. Word games to test your word skills. Don't leave home without it. A pro version lets you use it offline for a fee. The free version has the obligatory ads to be expected.
