  • The ads have gotten ridiculous

    By Wizki
    This was a great app, ad supported, but the ads have gotten ridiculous, and there are much better options out there.

  • Love it

    By bvnhvn
    I use this app at least weekly as I study not only to get information about words I do not understand but also to gain greater insight into words I think I comprehend. I have been using it for years. Love it!
  • Comes thru in a pinch

    By Catalyst357
    Great App. The most useful one on my phone
  • Missing valuable words

    By Vietwordworm
    App version would be worth what I have paid in the beginning, if it were reliable. Sadly, for the sake of $$, they have dropped words. I paid for the app, won’t pay again. Back to my 1950’s, 1980’s hardbound editions. ☹️

  • Love this app <3

    By DiamonNdaRough510
    Every time I get a phone this is a must to download. Convenient, fun, reliable. I promise I'll buy it one day and I appreciate that it's free to a great extent. ***i do wish it had a word break down or a word origin feature. That would help me remember the definition which is the whole point of a dictionary. Still love the app ❣️
