  • Great Free Abbreviation APP!

    by Rollingondubs

    I don't know why one review said don't get this because it's a great little free app. Try it. If you don't like it, delete and it costs you nothing. I love that it can search the web with just a tap if the abbreviation isn't in the app.

  • Good app just one problem

    by Jenandmatt

    Good for looking up meanings of abb and googling them right on the screen, there is a link for google at the bottom for the abb u are looking up. The only bad thing is that at times I will be looking something up and the whole app just closes out of no where and looses my place when I open it back up. Please fix this!
