Faultless I've been very happy with this since I bought it about a year ago. Always has the word I'm looking for, plus roots and ability to click on words within definitions which then link to their definitions. Highly recommended.

App icon and name is messed up Why is the app icon a star? And why is the apps name 'bookmark' instead of Chambers dictionary? On galaxy s3 Android 4.3

One of the most comprehensive dictionaries without a doubt. And is just getting a new dictionary edition. Steal for the this price (significantly cheaper than Collins, which is the other comprehensive dictionary).

Fantastic Definitions are all taken from printed edition so there's no omissions. Word origins, pronunciations and declension are thankfully included too. Search function works perfectly and anagram / missing-letters tools are very handy. UPDATE: upgraded to new 2014 edition at no extra cost, top marks

If you need a dictionary this is the best. I have used this app for over a year. It is simple and intuitive to use, links words, pattern searches and is completely stable. The underlying dictionary is arguably the best there is. Why would use a paper dictionary when this is available for a very modest sum. Fantastic value. And now updated to the latest ( 2014) edition of the dictionary at no extra cost, unbelievably good.
