App Reviews

  • Excellent app!

    By yodom
    I love this app and I use it extensively. I would like to have a direct way back to search. For example, if I am reading the word of the day, I have to go to the menu first and then tap on the search option. I would be nice to have a ”serch link” as ”one step” to continue searching for the next word. Thank you for this excellent app 😊
  • Mr.

    By Moullineaux
    I use this app several times a day and it is probably one of the most useful I have ever installed. I recommend it for anyone who has a passion for words.
  • Excellent Dictionary!

    By Satriale's Ice Capork Store
    I use this app all the time when I am reading a book and come across a word I don’t know (that happens more than I would like😉) One suggestion for improvement: show correct spelling alternatives when I misspell an entry. Google does that and it is a helpful feature.
  • Easy and Educational

  • Great useful dictionary

    By Reub 4Rhapsody
    Accessible, and the word games are great as well. Also has great word origins in a concise format.
  • Love this app

    By Cee0424
    Would love this as a very quick and easy to use dictionary alone, but it is so much more. It has audio pronunciation for each word, synonyms and antonyms, examples of usage, and word origins. It also has vocabulary builder games, word of the day and probably more that I haven't even found yet. Wish I had more time!
  • Quick, easy dictionary

    By Sarge too
  • A great English Language resource

    By 32567
    I teach college English both to native and non-native speakers. This dictionary has proven to be a great resource. I use it as a teaching tool and my students use it as learning tool. I strongly recommend it because it has a wide yet deep coverage of the language and its use, and it remains up-to-date in its constantly expanding lexicon. I have used the hard copy for decades and the app for close to ten years. A great resource!
  • More than a dictionary

    Love the sound button to hear how a word is pronounced accurately. Love the quiz game. Fun way to learn.
