App Reviews

  • Crashes in multitasking

    By Priyesh Patel
    This app is good but always crashes when I use it in side by side with OneNote and favorite a term on iPad. Must need to be fixed.
  • Maybe it’s me...

    By heckybenry
    I paid for the Pro version of this app, but it’s happened repeatedly that a word does not come up here though it DOES appear in M-W when searched for on the open internet. I can’t figure out why that should be, but it’s pretty frustrating.
  • Great app

    By TheOldInkWell
    Easy to use, well organized, clean interface, and—as always—extremely useful. The simplicity of toggling between dictionary mode and thesaurus mode is very nice, and the app remembers your recent inquiries so that you can review them and reinforce your learning of new words and meanings.
  • Word of the day does not work.

    By Anonymous listener...
    Word of the day works on the version with ads, but not on this one. I guess because I paid a one time price for the premium and now it is a subscription. It did start working. This is a valuable app.
  • Best dictionary app

    By Frank F Wang
    This app is among the best and the word of the day is very educational. Highly recommend!
  • Ana strophe

    By Skepticz
    Very good app. However, it does not attempt to correct spelling mistakes by offering suggestions.
  • Nailed it.

    By JWS1437
    Outstanding. Blows all other dictionary apps out of the water. This app is a must have for everyone.
  • I like the app and use it frequently, but...

    By Shijanelle
    UPDATE: Thank you to the developer or your response to my initial review. The app is now working. Thank you! I can enjoy ALL it features now!🥰🧸🕊 Hi! I paid for this app. It says I cannot see the Word of the DAY because it requires network access. I’m using WiFi AND and data. This does not make sense. How can I enjoy the app and use some of the features that I already paid for with this error? Please fix this. Five stars when total use of the app is available — remind you — that I have already purchased. Thank you!
  • Definitions and games, too!!!

    By gopadres9837
    Not only does this app provide definitions and satisfy my need to vary my vocabulary with the included thesaurus!!! This app also has deliciously enjoyable word games!!! You may think I am a vocab/grammar nerd. Guess what, you’re absolutely correct.
  • Over joyed and blessed to have access

    By A. Vonicue
    As a young person who had fallen on hard times and during the pinnacle of my frustration to spend the money on this app was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It’s has helped me discover and understand more than I can explain; both in the books I explore and on my own life’s path. Thank you to everyone for all the work put forth to bring us this tool!!
