Love it...as mentioned, the key thing is that it gets the audio player out of your way which is what the function of widgets should be. Highly reccomended.

I was looking for a simple free way of looking for the definitions or spellings of words. Fairly straightforward really and this more than fits the bill.

The widget installs very much like other widgets, by clicking the installer it goes about its business and then loads it up and asks if you want to keep it. The interface is simple and unconfusing with the logo, a text entry box and a display window.

The display window has adjustable font size which is a nice feature, but I was very surprised to see the option to save prononciations (!) to iTunes. Rightly enough, look up a word and it will offer you a pronunciation. The voice is clear enough to be relavent to me (English) althugh the whole thing is clearly a US thing, which is something you accept. A simple test - entering colour in shows that words like this are included as 'british variant's' (!!) but at least they are there. :-)

This little fella has proved an invaluable little tool for me as a dyslexic heavy computer user.

Well done and thanks....now to try the only button I havent pressed yet - 'donate' :-)
