    • Reference Tool: Extensible with URL-based actions, Terminology can quickly lookup terms on related web resources and other apps - making it a great place to start all searches.

It has been regularly featured by Apple, topped the charts, and been a Starbucks Pick of the Week. This new version is a rewrite of the popular app, bringing to up to date with the latest iOS technologies.
