  • A dictionary app that performs well in both content and presentation

    By displaying each entry as a node, the app links words and phrases in a dynamic tree. Other than the stunning presentation, the dictionary content is also solid--from the Oxford University Press.
    The app would be useful for English students when they are struggling to find the best-fit expression for their essay. Even random navigating would be fun and beneficial.
    With features more than a dictionary, one does not come to the app only when they need to look up for a specific word or phrase, but also when they want to explore the word of English language.

  • Tips for using the product

    There is a shuffle function which one could learn some new words.
