The Chambers Deluxe Dictionary & Thesaurus Review

An app for all your word-ly needs

The Chambers Dictionary is a widely recognised and trusted brand, and although this app isn’t cheap, you know you’re paying for quality. It works as you’d expect; typing a word in the search bar brings up the dictionary definition, along with examples of how to use it in a sentence and any related adjectives, nouns and so on. If you’re searching for a word, the app helps by predicting the word you’re looking for as you type. If it’s alternatives you’re after, tap the Thesaurus tab and you’ll be given a list of similar-meaning words.

The database of words is massive, and there was always a result for every word we searched for. As an educational tool, this is a top addition to any mobile device, and always a handy resource to have on you at all times. There are extra options available too, such as a History tab and Favourites. On top of that, tapping More brings up some more light-hearted features.

Here you’ll find the option to play Word Scramble, solve anagrams and see the word of the day. However, our favourite addition was the incredibly addictive Hangman.

While some may balk at the price, you’re getting a lot for your money here. The app performs its main functions impeccably, while the extra features are also a welcome addition that will keep you coming back for more.
