  • Convenient

    Always has what I need!
  • Dorland’s

    By alwaysmprest
    Dorland’s has been my favorite since the 1980’s, because the definitions are clear in a full-bodied way that doesn’t leave info out. The major competitor is Steadman’s, which I find a little dry.
  • Best dictionary

    By Trudysown
    Dorlands is the best dictionary in my opinion. I’ve used Mosby’s, Stedman’s, and still like Dorland’s best. Did medical transcription for 20+ years and had dozens of reference books.

  • Helping a Newbie Understand

    By Papasamurai8
    I often use the app in order to help me understand the scientific lingo I encounter whenever I read anything scientific-related. The only downside is that trying to understand a term, another difficult term is embedded in the definition, which soon prompts me to look up the new term (can you say, focus?).
  • Lack of definitions and photos

    By afewgoodmenj
    I purchased this long time ago as a student and now I use again this for reference. I frustrate this lack of terms and nothing photos for explanations. Hopefully you(the company) add more terms and photos for users. Thanks for your efforts!
