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."

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/)

"In my opinion, there’s no longer a missing dictionary app for the iPhone. Agile Tortoise’s Terminology—first launched on the iPad—is now available for the iPhone at an extremely affordable launch price of $0.99. It’s homescreen worthy."
[Ken Yarmosh, Author of "App Savvy"](http://kenyarmosh.com/blog/terminology-for-iphone/)

"Using Terminology for iPhone is a real pleasure. As you search for a word definition you also get synonyms, less and more specific meanings and Wikipedia, Wiktionary and Google shortcuts. It’s the amazing iPad version in your pocket."
[MacStories.net](http://www.macstories.net/iphone/terminology-ph-brings-a-proper-dictionary-to-the-iphone/)

"This is an easy app to use and work with. It is a must have for writers or students."
