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).

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).

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.

I use the free dictionary website all the time. The app is just as good as the website: highly recommended.

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.
