3.0 von 5 Sternen Okay. Limited as a dictionary and as a thesaurus. 3. Januar 2010
Von Quadradox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The other reviewers appear to address the printed version rather than the Kindle-specific version. I am focusing on the Kindle Application.

Strengths -- easily used under Kindle platform, terse, usually is clear in distinguishing parts of speech, and it can be used as the default dictionary.

Weaknesses
1. Definitions are not necessarily any more complete than those from the New Oxford American Dictionary(already built-in on Kindle). Several that I used tonight were less so.

2. Definitions for one part of speech are often dependent on another definition listed for another part of speech (a weakness of many dictionaries that is annoying for more complex or unfamiliar words)
----Simple example: the word anger is both a noun and a verb, Thus they define the verb form as "to make angry".

3. Thesaurus component is okay and gives additional ideas for the verb "anger". However antonyms are very limited if the purpose is to use this as a writing resource. Very few choices.
----For example: antonyms for anger (verb) were delight, gratify and please. But other common options are missing such as calm, sooth, pacify. One would have to keep browsing and unless you set this as the default, you keep ending up in another dictionary when trying to do that.

4. Word Origins are sometimes given, mostly abbreviated and with less detail than in Kindle's Default Dictionary.

I have not compared word counts. Sheer mass of definitions is a misleading index of quality.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle Fire version is useless 23. September 2013
Von R. Sutcliffe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This review is for the Kindle Fire version only. The dictionary is absolutely useless.It does not have a search function for looking for words, it does not have an index so you could at least go to the beginning letter of the word you want, it does not have page numbers so you could guess as to what might be the general area a word might be at.You have to flip through individual pages just like you are reading a book.

This is complete junk and is useless as a reference book. It would be quicker to drive to the store and by a paper bound dictionary to look the word up then it would be to use this dictionary.

I am going to be contacting the seller and asking for my money back, I will never use this dictionary.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Please make the kindle be able to have a dictionary that you can use to look up the spelling of words!!!!!!!!!!! 30. Dezember 2013
Von penny holley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Amazon needs to warn clients that you cannot use a dictionary the normal way on a kindle. It only works if you are reading a book. I would return the dictionary that I bought for $10.00 if I could. Now I need a dictionary that I can use to look up a word. When are you going to make the kindle accept a normal use of a dictionary? It certainly would be convenient to grab your kindle and look up the spelling of a word. It would help people that cannot spellllll.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An indispensable tool to any serious writer, speaker or business person. 3. Juni 2016
Von John West - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A great story although the plot was a little hard to follow! Just kidding of course.
This Dictionary and Thesaurus is an indispensable tool to any serious writer, speaker or business person.
Well worth the money.
1.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle version seems limited; not recommended. 6. Dezember 2016
Von DouginNC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Kindle buyers beware! The Kindle edition is extremely limited, with truncated definitions of words and limited selections of synonyms and antonyms. The "trick" is that the Kindle edition cover says "Based On Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary" which means it bears a resemblance but is not the real article. (The work "article" is defined better than some others in the Kindle edition, such as "payroll" or "PC".) I blew a just few bucks on a day when this was on sale at half the regular price, a cheap disappointment.

A positive: The Kindle edition begins with a description of the steps to make this the default dictionary on your Kindle, and covers the steps for the many variations of the Kindle family, including the Kindle App for Android. If only it delivered substantially more than the default Kindle dictionary, which I think it does not.
