    "Dictionary.com is a great website and now you can access it in app form on the iPhone. It features a robust library of over 2,000,000 definitions and synonyms. The free version doesn't include an offline mode, so you'll definitely want to spend the reasonable fee of $3.99 for the pro version. One of my favorite features is the built-in audio playback that teaches you how to pronounce unfamiliar words. There's also a word of the day feature, the ability to see which words are trending and a "local lookup" feature, which specifically highlights words being used commonly in your city. The interface is clean and efficient just like the website and the ability to connect to the Pro version offline is extremely useful for times when you don't have internet reception."

    "This app is a standard requirement for those who care about proper literature quality and need the full support that this app can provide. Although the free version forces advertising upon the user, it is still offered free and can be upgraded with a paid version to avoid the hassle. In the time of need where a writer needs a valuable source of information while writing, or even needing and explanation or variation of a word, this app is sure to be a valued resource of convenient data."

    "I have limited data on my shared plan. To conserve data I use offline apps. For my dictionary I use WordWeb Dictionary. It has tons of words and seemes to get updated often. It really helps me while I am at work. I love it."

    "The days of flipping through hundreds of pages looking for a word are over! This app is so user friendly and quick. You can simply type in the word you are looking for and the search results automatically come up.
