      "The best feature about this app is that you can use it offline. However an English dictionary should know English words, but it seemed like some of the definitions were processed through a translator first. Great for spelling or if you're a native speaker, but probably wouldn't recommend it to secondary English speakers."

      "For a good offline dictionary (needed on long car trips with a bored curious three-year-old), I downloaded Dict Box Pro. It's great for looking up words she does not know. She spells the words and it goes to the definition. Very simple and efficient. My only suggestion would be for a voice option."
