The app has been fully redesigned for iOS 7 to make it even more enjoyable to use.

In addition to all the definitions from Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, and all the synonyms and antonyms from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Thesaurus, the app offers voice search – to let you look up a word without having to spell it – example sentences, Quick Definitions, Word of the Day, Favorites, and more.

It’s a great tool for reference, education, and vocabulary building.

The premium content includes over 1000 graphical illustrations, and over 20,000 additional entries covering people, places, and foreign terms.
