### REVIEWS

4.5 out of 5 Mice
"Terminology is a good-looking app—replete with smart font choices, a pleasant minimalist look, and an eye-friendly color palette. If you want a dictionary on your iOS device, Terminology’s the one to pick."
[Macworld](http://www.macworld.com/appguide/app.html?id=581633)

8/10
"About as speedy and straightforward as a dictionary can be. Entries spring open instantly when tapped, and search results update dynamically as you type."
[Wired Magazine App Guide]

"I think I'll skip making the dictionary app. Terminology is too damn good. Everyone who said I should make it: go buy Terminology instead."
[Marco Arment, Instapaper](https://twitter.com/#!/marcoarment/status/59488958333190144)

"Using Terminology is like having that friend’s undivided attention as they help you find just the right word or turn of phrase that you’re looking for."
[ShawnBlanc.net](http://shawnblanc.net/2011/08/terminology/)

[Padgadget](http://www.padgadget.com/2010/08/25/at-a-loss-for-words-try-terminology-for-ipad/)

[MacStories.net](http://www.macstories.net/news/terminology-an-app-for-the-english-language/)
