    I purchased this specifically to use with OfficeSuite Pro, but every time I try to download all the data to use offline, the download fails. As a result, OfficeSuite won't let me set it up as the default dictionary. Please fix this issue! Otherwise, why did I spend money on this dictionary??

    I always use my thesaurus from the shelf now. There are so few suggestions compared to my hard copy. I will often get three suggestions for a word that will have 100 + in the hard copy. I love getting suggestions that are both closely and very remotely related to a word when I'm really stuck. This doesn't do that at all. Further, i looked up 'feature' here and got nothing relevant to my sentence.

    This dictionary has it all! I like to browse through the words and this is the first app that I found that lets me do this. Most others are search engines only.
