Normally priced at $0.99, Terminology: Dictionary, Thesaurus & Search for iPhone and iPad has just dropped to Free! Apple’s built-in dictionary is great and all, but what about when you need to find alternative words? A thesaurus is what you need. And Terminology is the app that has it. Not only is Terminology an excellent stand alone app for finding synonyms, antonyms, and related words, it can do so without even leaving your current app. Much like Apple’s dictionary look-up feature, Terminology is accessible by selecting a word and then tapping on Share. Then select Terminology in the list of apps to see that word’s definition and thesaurus entries. Terminology offers a concise way to improve your writing and overall communication.
We only recommend high-quality apps like Terminology: Dictionary, Thesaurus & Search that have dropped in price. You can find more of them on our App Sales page or simply subscribe to our Newsletters to get notified via email.
Terminology is a browser for the English language – part dictionary, part thesaurus and part research tool. Terminology makes it easy to explore words and phrases, diving down to more and less specific terms - accessing the web and other apps for more detail and sharing.
More than a dictionary, Terminology can be extended with custom actions to search the Internet and other reference apps – making it a great place to start all your searches.
Use the share extension to select text anywhere, in any app, and look it up in Terminology.
