If you're reading a good book and come upon some unknown language, you may well need to look it up. Or perhaps you must write a sophisticated business letter including some eye-catching verbiage. Trying using Terminology for all your language needs. Terminology is both a dictionary and thesaurus, and is designed to make it easy to explore words and phrases. Many specific terms and expressions are included, and the iPad reference app links you up to Wikipedia and other sites as well for additional information. Some of the enlightening and literary features of Terminology are as follows:

- Pleasant, book-like, readable interface
- Offline use
- Definitions, synonyms, antonyms
- More and less specific words
- Part, part of, members, member of, pertains to and other word relationships
- Spelling suggestions
- Returns to last application state on launch
- In-app web browser with quick links to look up terms at Wikipedia, Wiktionary and other sites
- Option to open external links directly in Safari
- Links to "Articles", the popular Wikipedia reader app
- Star favorite words for quick access
- History of terms browsed
- Look up words from Instapaper

There are many facets of Terminology that I find particularly helpful. You can quickly search synonyms and antonyms. In addition, the search engine works fast to bring you the information you need while the simple, clean interface does not distract from your work in progress.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Use Terminology to help decode words in your reading materials or to produce a highly polished document."
