Info updated on:

Chambers English Dictionary and Thesaurus is exactly what its name implies: a program that provides you with explanations for English words. This application comes as an alternative to searching words definitions with your default browser or in an actual dictionary book.

The program features an efficient search tool that helps you easily and quickly find the word definition you're looking for. What's more, you can mark the words explanations you wish to access later as favorites, check the irregular verbs list, print definitions, and much more.

Sadly, the app doesn't provide you with all of its content for free. You need to make in-app purchases in order to have access to all words definitions. An advantage is that the program suggests you other tools which can be purchased from its interface at reasonable prices; for example, you can buy Chambers Crossword Dictionary, Chambers Concise Dictionary, and many others.

Another thing I like is the fact that it comes with text-to-speech feature. This option might prove to be of good use to people who are studying English language and need to learn correct words pronunciation.

Briefly, it's worth buying this app for your Mac if you're learning how to speak and write in English. The program provides you with plenty of useful features, is very simple to use, and offers you accurate words definitions.
