If you want a dictionary on your iOS device, Terminology’s the one to pick." :: MacWorld (http://blitl.us/termmwr) "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://blitl.us/termphr1) "Terminology is a definite must-get for anyone looking for a nice little vocabulary reference app or just want to expand their daily vocabulary with a functional yet gorgeous app." :: AppAdvice (http://blitl.us/termphr2) "Using Terminology for iPhone is a real pleasure.

It’s the amazing iPad version in your pocket." :: MacStories.net (http://blitl.us/termphr3) "This is an easy app to use and work with. It is a must have for writers or students." :: AppModo (http://blitl.us/termphr4) ------ Also, checkout term.ly (http://term.ly), Terminology's online companion, providing an easy way to share words with short term.ly/word URLs.
