  • An odd issue

    By chichonsalsa
    As someone else mentioned, there is an issue with the favorite words. It won’t let you scroll all the way down. You can also see about the first ten words that are on your favorite list. I purchased to remove the ads to see if maybe that was it, but unfortunately it’s still a problem. Please fix. ***Update review 05/22/19*** The above comment was fixed, however, there is now another issue with this app. The “pronounce” option doesn’t work. I have my volume all the way up but no sound comes out when I click the button. This issue has been going on for several months but I’ve ignored it hoping that eventually they would figure it out, but several months later and it’s still not working. This is such a buggy app. They need better developers. I have the paid version too.
  • More than I expected. Much more.

    By quit with this nonsence
    I just upgraded the dictionary to the premium (?) package. The best $5.99 I have ever spent. I was pleased with the basic package but the upgrade has opened an entire new world of knowledge for me. I am sure that in the dictionary there are words to express my pleasure with this app. As of yet I do not have them but, I know they are there waiting for me. A 10 star rating is needed.
  • Legible? Yes, finally!

    By aagg03
    This update’s description is true. At last, developers have done away with the light/pastel backgrounds (a design no-no to anyone with at least a little good sense!) — which arrived when they stopped using background images, in favor of solid colors. The Android version was fixed last week and now the iOS version is as well.
  • Coding is incorrect

    By Chinese Poundcake
    The overall front of the app is fine. The definition and origin are there; however if you scroll down to see the ‘previous days’ words and you want to view one....you can’t. The easiest example for today is: i hit he button for May 15th, “Consent”, and it took me to April 27th, “Groupthink”. All of the words do this in that section and it’s super frustrating. Please fix and I’ll rate 5 stars.
  • Ummmm...

    By gorgeous games hunter
    Pretty good app. The description for Version 7.5.17 says legible is a noun, which it's not... not a great impression for a dictionary app. Otherwise, this app provides good definitions of words and colloquialisms and is easy to use.
  • Your update claim

    By proofreader!!
    For a Dictionary app, claiming that legible is a noun is not too bright😂
  • Legible??

    By Nappy Head
    App update verbiage says “Legible is a noun...”, but it is actually an adjective. Even your own fricken app says that. 🤦‍♂️
  • I love this app but...

    By Lovetheking718
    The definitions are pretty good and simple to understand but even after I paid for the offline version the app. If the internet connection is weak or nonexistent the app slows down or crashes even though I have checked the always online. Sometimes I have turn on airplane mode just for definitions to show up when Im in the train station. Besides this it is a great dictionary application and I'm glad i bought it and i recommend it to Anyone looking for a simple dictionary. I just wish offline truly meant offline
  • .....it’s just that...

    By Nels Svenson
    Great app, I use it all the time, it’s just that 1) The quizzes are cut off, I can never see all the answer choices, and 2) Some times the font is so small that it’s very difficult to read. I love it though for easy quick definitions, thesaurus, and rhyming words.
  • Always there

    By jmawp
    This app/Dictionary is ALWAYS there when I need it! Thanks.
