I've used Chambers for years both as hard copy and when it was on CD. This app and the Thesaurus are both excellent but have one major flaw which is the reason why I have only rated it 4. When using the 'search' feature they will not find words with accented characters. Try looking up "Provencal" for instance - no problem - then try searching for it - not found! Very annoying when searching for crossword answers when you do not have all the letters. Please WW Software correct this problem and you will get the full 5 star rating. UPDATE December 2016 - App has now been updated and problem solved. Rating updated to 5 stars. Thanks WorldWeb
Dictionary Central Very nice UI, solid lexicography, and robust search capabilities — it even returns homonyms! The Oxford Dictionary of English app has fuller definitions, examples, and notes on usage, but without some features found here. You can have the best of both worlds within Chambers by creating an online reference to oxforddictionaries dot com followed by "/definition/english/@@". In fact, I consult American Heritage, Merriam-Webster, and others, all from this app. Brilliant!
I bought my first Chambers dictionary in 1973 ("New Edition 1972") and I have used it much over the years. The best one volume English dictionary I have found. I have used it as an app for almost three years and it is as good as ever
Favourite dictionary in app form :)
Problem with letter 'I' Have used print Chambers for years for crosswords and always found it excellent? The app is great except that when I type a lower case I then I often get the lower case L instead. My other half has the Windows version and has complained of the same problem but found a workaround, which does not work for me.
Excellent dictionary This app has the same uncluttered layout and simplicity as the printed version and has the benefit of being a lot cheaper. The wildcard search is a useful feature too. The app saves your searches for easy assess and links to other services like Wikipedia. If you like the Chambers dictionary then you will like this.
