    The best app for GRE preparation.
  • Good

    By marvuloso
    This app is good. I have learned the definitions of many good and big words. Thank you for the words.
  • Dictionary???

    By Yorkie's are wonderful
    I find it odd that this app seems to think simple words like superfluity “do not exist” or constantly change entered spellings to what “it thinks” you want to look up. If I had to purchase this frustration I’d be angry. Worthless App

  • My writing companion!

    By Spiritsis
    Being a writer, i have several dictionaries and thesauruses, but I find this app usually supplies just the word I need.
  • Amazing! Loving Word-of-the-day!

    By Geovany L.
    This really is a great app it’s easy to use and has so many fun features. Not like a normal boring app, M-W makes learning new words and searching for them incredibly fun and interactive. I’m happy I ever got this app. I recommend it to anyone and everyone!
  • Great App for word Smithers and language enthusiasts

    By DenofLions
    Loooove this app...trying to increase my vocabulary and love the historic tid bits, synonym explanations and words of the day. Love having the ability to check the meaning of a word used in meetings or otherwise is a great way to keep learning.
  • Sound doesn’t always work

    By Attyharu
    App is glitchy. Sounds works only sporadically.
  • Ads

    By Kh1kh22
    I’m awfully disappointed. I paid to block ads but I keeping getting them. Extremely frustrated and that is why I rated it one star.
