  • 5 stars so you will stop hassling me

    By barcelu
    I’m giving this five stars because the app keeps throwing up requests to give it five stars. Ok, so now will you turn it off and let me use the app I paid for in peace! It certainly does not deserve five stars. It is a good thesaurus but the app is clunky, badly thought out and amateurish. In fact I regret purchasing it. I should gone for Roget’s. They seem to have a better app. This really deserves maybe two stars. But hopefully I can get on without the constant reminders if I give it five stars.
  • Collins' Thesaurus

    I knew I had already paid $22.00 for Collins' thesaurus about 6-months ago, but I like to write, so I thought it'd be worth it. It's been a while since I had looked at it, and when I opened it up today, it says "Collins Dictionary". They have a Thesaurus in the App store, $11.99, so I thought perhaps I'd purchased the incorrect App earlier. Heck, only $12 It "says" "Collins Thesaurus", but I'll be dogged if it isn't exactly the same app I purchased six months ago :( My husband is going to blow his top if he finds out how much I paid for two apps and neither one is what I wanted!! Very, very disappointed in BOTH purchases. Constance Waller

    I have used this thesaurus in print form for years, but having it on my iPad saved me hours of time. My iPad sits next to my computer when I am writing and is a very handy tool. Ann Crew Writer of the Elspeth Duff Mystery series
  • Horrible Interface!

    This app has a very sloppy interface! Also for the price it doesn't deliver. Developer add new features and update the current features! Also developer make this app more user-friendly.
  • Need update

    Not comprehensive. There are some antonyms but not every word. There are example sentences for all word. But link search not useful, for example when look up a word ABSOLVE will give a group of synonyms but when you tap on EXCULPATE , which is a synonym of ABSOLVE, will link to WORD NOT FOUND .Not worth $19.99 until it's updated.
  • No antonuyms at all

    This produict has no antonyms on alomst every word I looked up (unlike "lavish" in the app screen shot). Of course it is impossible for Collins Thesaurus to have no antonyms - this is another fake.
