Pros and cons of English Dictionary and Thesaurus with Verbs app for iPhone and iPad

English Dictionary and Thesaurus with Verbs app good for

This dictionary was one of the first apps, which caught my attention once the app store was launched. I didnt get it that time cuz it was around 24€. I think the developers noticed the high price they had set as well & brought the price down, first to 15€ & now to 7,99€. Somehow I felt like spending 7,99€ for it today & I finally got it... & I have to tell you that Im pretty impressed! You have an advanced dictionaty & thesarus which dont require Internet. The Usability is very effective & properly designed without no bugs so far. If you are an English learner, this will definetly come in handy. If it had some sort of pronunciation audio file for the words, it would have been the ultimate pocket dictionary; nevertheless 4 shiny stars from me.
HEY!!! I WANT A CREDIT!!! lol good move guys. but uh..... seriously......
I didnt even consider it at the previous price, $9.99 was the sweet spot for me. I only use it ocassionally, and in general like to have dictionaries for reference if needed. At $19.99 it just didnt make sense for a reference use here and there. Same goes for all the other dictionaries. At the higher price you are targeting people that really need them, and thats probably a small fraction of all. Nicely done interface, though havent had a chance to explore it more and get a better feeling of the dictionary database size itself.
This is a nice app, dictionary and thesaurus are complete and through. The verb conjugation also comes handy. What I miss is a feature that gives options as one writes a word in the dictionary (as is the case with the verbs ??!!) so if one is not 100% sure about the spelling of a word still can find it.
This application will be very useful once the school year begins. It would be really cool if the words could pop up as soon as you start typing them in. Great App!
Other than "LOL" being defined as "lots of laughs" rather than what we all know it to be, its a damn good app. (Why does this LOL issue make me picture 67 year old librarians with horn rimmed glasses trying to figure out all these Net acronyms?)

Some bad moments

Ok heres the thing, I bought this app when it was 19 and now price went down to half, I need my my money back stupid people!!!! U cant just make up prices! Make up it mind then start makin money from innocent people!!
I decided to buy Ulysses online and from the description of this dictionary thought it could get me through. Half the words I look up from the great book are not there, it being old English I suppose and all, but you can find obscure names of American villages like Kipton, Ohio, population 283 listed! Wow! For $9.99 I feel violated!
The app itself is cool. But the content of the dictionary is very disappointing. The definitions are way too often incomplete or misleading. I find it close to unusable. Im sticking with Websters mobile portal for now.
BRING BACK OLD INTERFACE - as option perhaps. OR FIVE NE MY MONEY BACK!! The old GUI was more efficient. Now I have to scroll kilometers and even the colors and fonts are no good.
No collegiate level dictionary should lack the word "rapprochement" so I find it hard to believe this is one.
This is way over price there is a free one calledwe dic I mean there is not much of diffrence
