App Reviews

  • Must have app!!!

    By the Fact & All
    No doubt this is the best personal English dictionary app available. Simply excellent. Im French leaving in the U.S for over 15 years and this app really helps me improve my vocabulary on daily basis. Super easy to use and very efficient. Totally worth the money. Sure you might find something as good but the UI is the best I’ve found and it’s use is flawless. So good it’s almost like American-English became my first language.
  • Love it!

    By RafaSeLo
    I have loved and used this dictionary for years, it was the first one my eyes saw when I started studying English in Cuba like 20 years ago. I owe much of my knowledge to the work of Webster Dictionary. Thanks guys, I appreciate it!
  • I love having a Good Dictionary on my phone

    By Ckiemle
    I love words I check spelling and I like to learn and sharpen my mind there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.
  • Indubitably superlative performance

    By Hankering4u
    Pronunciation feature is well received. Congratulatory donation pending.
  • Voice Search Doesn’t Work!

    By Koot's Buddy
    When I try to use the Voice Search, I get a dialogue box saying “Voice Search not available at this time” Why? What did I pay for?
  • Etymology Made Fun

    By Kuuckie
    Finding out the history and origins of words we use, and sometimes take for granted, is not only enlightening, but also helps me to appreciate how rich and varied are the words themselves and their evolution. The games are fun, challenging, and entertaining and can benefit you personally and professionally.
  • Grand fun

    By cmupas
    I had been using the free version of this app for multiple years and became tired of the advertisements. In lieu of paying yearly for the ad-removing subscription, I opted for the professional version with these wonderful games. Highly recommended from a novice in realm of vocabulary.
  • Pro

    Good dictionary without any ads
  • Deserved a 5, Except for one thing.

    By nanlaa
    When I use the Dictionary and I want to use the thesaurus for the same word, I can’t.
  • Absolutely perfect!

    By Beachykid
    Everything about it works for me. Complete in every way, plus it’s always at hand. So quick! So easy! Merriam Webster has been my dictionary of choice since 1945, and I’ve used this apt since is was introduced. I use it almost every day.
