    This app, and this dictionary, are in a class by themselves. Thanks to the incomparable work of the late Calvert Watkins, the information with regard to Indo-European roots is both beautiful and illuminating. This dictionary is constantly being brought up to date with regard to contemporary usage. I frequently mention this dictionary in my classes on Greek and Latin language and literature, as well as in my discussions of poetry and prose in English. (Bert Lain)

    The AHD has accompanied me since 2015, when I was preparing for my English exams. It is very nice. One suggestion for the app might be: can the “Add to Favorites” icon be displayed on the top menu, rather then being hidden in the foldable menu? I really use function a lot. Thank you.

    When I look up any word I always understand with accuracy what the meaning of the word is. Explain what part of the speech is in a convenient and easy way. Fantastic.
