  • The ad music

    By Abctown
    I don’t need ad music playing really loud in my classes or at work. I can no longer use.

  • Startling and interrupting ads

    By Wuvly
    The app has changed to interrupt one’s dictionary searches with ads that make you wait before you can use the dictionary. Even worse is that some of the ads have audio - which is a very big and possibly embarrassing interruption. I have to delete this app because it can’t be used dependably.
  • Markup Tags

    By Jkristov
    Finally had to write about a problem with the app that has been going on for months. The text has not too few markup tags mixed in with the text which is annoying. Don’t know what they do (italics, underlining or some other font change). Never saw this when I had the app on android. Currently my phone is a iPhone 6s Plus with iOS 11.2.2. This has been a problem since iOS 10x. No other apps do this on my phone. Content is good otherwise, but the random tags get in the way of readability.
  • Seriously.

    By KEA2004
    I used this with my son as he came across unfamiliar words in school work. Now, I purposely avoid using it due to the dreadful onslaught of ads. At the least, make them silent. Even better, make them banners so one can still use the app in the midst of them.
  • It helps me with school

    By Deatherella062606
    I really love it for starters! When I’m reading a book or doing an assignment, I come across a word I don’t understand. So I got to my dictionary app. It has helped me a lot!
  • Noisy ads

    By Bklynsuns
    Too many noisy ads right when you look up a word and are trying to focus on its definition. Too bad because you have been a long time friend. Have to uninstall.
