App Reviews

  • Better than the other Dictionary Apps

    By snopp doggggg
    It's a good app. The app makes it easy to navigate words and identify most variability with grammar. The one thing I don't like is the constant bombardment of adds. It makes the app feel less educational and sophisticated, more cheep and hard to look at. That is my one criticism, but I find it to be a rather large one.
  • Love it

    By lizgiran
    Very simple and to the point. I love the added features of playing the word games. It really stimulates my mind. A great brain exercise for that memory retention.
  • Great with school work

    By Coolfunnygal1
    It's easy I love it I don't need wi-fi to search the definition of a word. I love it I can study anywhere. Recommend
  • Great Learning Tool

    By shadikarimii
    Fascinating! Marvelous intellectual stimulation and vocabulary expansion opportunity! Recommendation for the application developers: Would love to see that we can save words from vocabulary challenges/games, and that we can hear pronunciations, simultaneously (if not possible for all, then for the correct word). Thank you for this wonderful application!!!!
  • Vocab Game is Beautiful

    By DOneDarling
    Nice app with features that worth tens of games. I will like if the player knew they were synonyms before each game started.
  • Superb

    By LeaninBean

  • The best

  • Lost two MW 5-Star dictionaries for this whiz-bang mediocre one

    By cheesymusic
    I paid $20 for the MW I had. It’s gone. This one is not nearly as complete. I could go back to excellent hard copies, but I already had them in my pocket. Big loss for me. I write a lot. I am usually looking for a comprehensive layout of word meanings. I also bought the unabridged for another $20 or so. This one is for beginners.
  • Comprehensive, clear defining and spelling assistant

    By Uncle J's Monsters
    I appreciate the quick results and automatically saved recent searches offered by this app.
  • Quiz feedback

    By Kbird30
    LOVE the quiz idea but needs more. If I get something wrong, I want to be able to review it, review the words I missed.
