What to Expect

The English Thesaurus app is definitely user-friendly and offers a huge database of words. What's great is that this one also includes parts of speech you don't always find in a typical thesaurus app. These include things like idiomatic verbs, prepositional phrases, synonyms for the proverbs, and exclamations. Additional features of this app include being able to enter in plurals, perform searches that may include a misspelled word, perform phonetic transcription, there are meaning descriptors to help users understand the different meanings of a word, and you can sync any favorites with Dropbox. To make the experience even more enjoyable you can choose the background color, theme, and font that you prefer.
