Worth It! Expensive but it works! I have tried many dictionaries but they were all unreliable. I would rate 5* if added features were available as on the other dictionaries but a working & reliable one is more important.

Great I've rarely encountered a word not found in this dictionary. The only problem is that there are only British pronunciations.

Not the best I find this application (strangely) complementary to the Oxford English Dictionary. The latter has more grammatical information and more usage examples. This application has more entries but lacks a bit in the abovementioned facilities. Both COLLINS and OXFORD are very good but, as I said, for greater scope of reference, they should be used together. Of course, this is a language enthusiast's opinion. Highlighting (phrases and examples of usage) is better in the COLLINS application but then again, a full-text search facility would be welcome, just like in the case of the Oxford dictionary.
