5.0 out of 5 stars Best dictionary for Kindle Fire December 28, 2011
By JGJoy
Verified Purchase
This dictionary has a good layout, reasonably-sized text, and gives you access to a wealth of content. All of the dictionary apps I've tried have their quirks, but this one is pretty straightforward. Nicely done. It does work well on a large screen (e.g., the Fire's 7-inch).

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy With This Dictionary. July 20, 2012
By Peg
Verified Purchase
Great Dictionary app. I'm a fairly good speller but I like to double check my spelling when posting or blogging and this app is just what I need and easy and fun to use. It also lists synonyms and antonyms which will help me with my crossword puzzles and other word games. Additionally, it is a Thesaurus which will also help in that respect and when writing cards and letters. And the big PLUS, it's FREE. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 20, 2012

You cannot beat this dictionary App. Yes it is supported by ads, but they are pretty unobtrusive. If you need to quickly know a definition, synonym or antonym, you must get this. Even has a nice home page with word games, quotes of the day, weather, biographies, etc. Works well with Kindle Fire HD. It's free... go ahead and try it (you have nothing to lose).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this dictionary on my Kindle Fire. December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
When reading a Kindle book, the imbedded dictionary is fine. But I wanted a handy dictionary for when I'm reading hard copy. This is faster than looking up a word via the web. Also, it keeps a list of previous words looked up - a great way to review words not currently in your vocabulary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy use December 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app for my Kindle Fire is so much easier to navigate than the pre-programmed dictionary.

When words are similar, it even asks if you mean "This word" or "That word" when you enter a search.
