Terminology is a browser for the English language – part dictionary/thesaurus and part research tool. Terminology makes it easy to explore words and phrases, diving down to more and less specific terms - accessing the web and other apps for more detail and sharing.

More than a dictionary, Terminology can be extended with custom actions to search the Internet and other reference apps – making it a great place to start all your searches.

Use the share extension to select text anywhere, in any app, and look it up in Terminology.
