Version: iFinger Collins English Dictionary 4.1
I've used this product before and it's very convenient with a good range synonymns and antonymns - if you can get it to load.
The Collins spoken pronounciation dictionary (which originally cost me about $60) and iFinger are quite good, easily accessible and comprehensive dictionaries but are a cow to load on to new computers. I've wasted hours on this product and its shop-purchased (more featured equivalent) trying to get them to load. On this basis I'd steer clear of Collins' computer products.
Good handy dictionary if it works - a big "if".
