Cool application!

:
Several voices included but less bloated size.
I like the feature to help you get the meanings of any word in both online and offline dictionaries just by one tap.

5/5 stars

Fabulous App

:
Been looking for an app to use with school kids that could be used off line. Love this app. Will really help when they misspell a word because of its ability to correct them. Also appreciate how you can choose to not allow the profanity.

5/5 stars

A definite keeper!

:
All suggestions sent to developers are included in this version made me feel that I got a really huge bonus.
I ended up using WordBook more often than any application I got. Love the etymologies, the solver and Sue Barnes's voice.
