  • Compared to the rest, M-W’s app is the best.

    By Grunzio230
    a follower of the doctrine of antinomianism adjective relating to or influenced by Antinomianism The above is an example of WordBook’s definitions. So often they are circular. I used to hold the Oxford dictionary in high esteem. The unabridged version in print is excellent. But the app is a far cry from the printed unabridged version. As for the word for the day? It is randomly generated. Really Oxford? How dumb is that? Don’t waste your time or money on Oxford’s app. Merrium-Webster Pro is fantastic. Word for the day is chosen from contemporary usage. The definitions are not circular. You understand what a word means. With WordBook, the circular definitions are frankly meaningless. There are many nice features of M-W’s dictionary including ease of use. And don’t neglect to sign up for their newsletter: “M-W’s Word of the Day.” Thank you M-W for a great resource!
  • Best dictionary ever 😺😺😽😽😻😻

    By Heather Pesich
    My mom got this for me a few weeks ago and ever since I fell I love with this app. This is better then the real book dictionary’s at school this Is very helpful, all you need to do is type the word that you need or want to know about and press search and it tells you the definition. If you need a dictionary don’t waste your time too find a book dictionary, go on the app and buy this app! PS. There is a thesaurus on the dictionary app as well,take your time to find the word you want and this is the easiest app to find a word.👍😊😊

    If you own a device, this is the first app that should go on it!!! Immediately set it to get Word of the Day notifications. You can “heart” words that you want to save, and they will appear on each device that contains the app! There are games on it as well to help expanse your vocabulary. Just get it, as it’s so worth it!
  • Great app

    This is my go to app like always 😂👌
  • Class act app

    By 1gr8rdh
    This app has a thoughtful design and is beautifully written for ease of use while brimming with helpful information. A user can skim the surface for the basic meaning of a word, or, they can delve deeply into the broader understanding of word’s origen, contemporary usage, evolving nature and its synonyms/antonyms without having to leave a page. Further search within the app for its various features and functions is so easy to do, again, thanks to the clean, uncluttered design.
  • Apple Watch app changed

    By Team_eevee
    Please add word of the day back to the Apple Watch 😢
  • Is it a child’s version?

    By Aniemous!!
    This is the most disappointing app on my phone. Of the last 10 lookups I made, only two words were listed. I had to go to other sources. The number of entries in this app are so limited it is useless to me.
  • Great App

    By Albamoon
    Love this app. Love the 'word of the day', the m-f quizzes..oh yes, and the dictionary, and thesaurus too ; ) As a word nerd who loves to learn about the derivations of words and/or expressions, it has it all.
  • Worth it!

    By Hairbear333
    Sorry for being short on words but this app has plenty more if I need more!
  • Essential
