Wordbook is a fully fledge dictionary that has some innovative features up it’s sleeve. Like a crossword and anagram solver.  It even has a built-in thesaurus and word links connecting hundreds of thousands of words together.  It even lets you edit your favorite words and history and let you export it to your email!  One feature I really love is how it lets you set 5 web dictionaries on top of the built-in one just in case the definition you find doesn’t make sense.  The user interface is average, but I wish that WordBook would open the search bar and keyboard the second you launch the app so you can quickly look up your word.  Overall, I think that WordBook is a fantastic dictionary app.  It costs a steep $8.00, but that can easily be justified by the great content you are getting.  With over 150,000 entries, 220,000 definitions, 330 word links, and 70,000 examples, Wordbook gets an overall rating of 4 out of 5.
