The App Store and Google Play app serves as the ideal SAT and ACT preparation guide and offers the best features to help you perfect your spelling. With it, you can search any word without having to spell it, all thanks to the audio word search. It also lets you find antonyms and synonyms to facilitate faster learning of words, allowing you to further your education.
This tool also offers additional learning and educational features essential for learning words. These include the Etymology (learn the origins and definitions of the most unusual words), and Word of the Day (get new vocabulary daily). Additionally, you can search a word by location and enjoy the guidance of spelling suggestions.
Interestingly, the tool is available as an iOS and Android app. The former would require you to have iOS 8.0 and over (works with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch). On the other hand, the latter is not for specific Android versions but varies with the device.
Ease of Use
This iOS and Android mobile app is quite easy to use. It has a design that makes it convenient to search for words and their meanings. I also find it to be quite simple to understand. However, I’ve experienced incessant errors whenever I attempt to install the offline dictionary. Additionally, a drop-down for other languages would be instrumental in helping compare words.
Notably, the latest version of the app comes with several minor fixes and performance improvements.
One of the things that I find quite intriguing is the simple design that makes it easy to learn and maneuver through the app. The interface is also quite straightforward, an attribute that befits an online dictionary. Additionally, word suggestions pop up as you type, so you can still find the word with ease even if you’re uncertain about the spelling.
This iOS and Google Android application is free. However, you’ll need to get the in-app purchases to enhance it with additional features. Fortunately, they will offer value for your money considering they don’t cost much. The most expensive one is the Power Pack Upgrade which goes for $5.99, while the cheapest is the Remove Ads Upgrade that costs $1.99.
