A Writer's DreamThe most expensive Android application I have bought - and worth every cent. I have always preferred Collins dictionaries from back in the "dead tree" days, and now I have all that goodness on my tablet and phone - at a tiny fraction of the weight. As my work involves writing, the thesaurus is an excellent tool; as an avid reader, the dictionary performs likewise, especially when tackling the likes of Anthony Burgess. The etymology in the dictionary goes beyond what my old, heavy, "dead tree" Concise Collins gave me. I may find issues down the track but early experience shows this application to be of the quality I would expect from the traditional form of these publications. No more trying to use Google as a dictionary - yay!
Free WordNet Adv Eng & Thes is betterThis expensive pack from Collins did not have the word 'Tonsure', for example. Get the freeware WordNet's "Advanced English and Thesaurus" instead.
PbakjpGood stuff all the way!
