Good, but does not appear to be accessible offline Used Wordweb on PC, so decided to get it on Android. I love the Chambers dictionary which I consider to be the best commonly available, so when I saw that WordWeb was selling it as a paid addon (so to speak), I decided to buy it and the thesaurus as well, especially as supposedly both will download and work locally when I am not connected to the internet. Except they don't. At least not on my Nook HD+. So far, I am only able to get definitions in WordWeb and Chambers when I am connected to the internet. Very, very disappointing as I am often not connected to the internet, as when reading during commuting. Is there some setting I am missing to fix this?

Useful but lots of crashes Nexus 7 (2013) with Android 4.4.2. Crashes very frequently, sometimes with an "Error 2" message, but not always. Otherwise very useful though the UI design could be better, e.g. it took me weeks to notice that it had an anagram feature even though that's something I use daily for crosswords. These problems don't seem to happen on my Nexus 4 (same version of Android) although I haven't used it as much so maybe I've just been lucky. Update: Still crashing almost every time I use it on the N7. Getting very frustrated with this. Also when started in landscape mode it's always upside down from how I usually hold the tablet and has to be flipped to the correct orientation.

quality dictionary If you like concise word definitions this is the dictionary for you. Closest synonyms are used in definitions preferably to lengthy descriptions. I also like the new user interface layout. It was also very generous of the developers to have updated to the 13th version without any additional charges for the users of the 12th version.
