  • Improvement to the app - please make it happen!

    By ImproveThisApp
    Useful app but lost some of the functionality it originally had. There is no back button, so using your favorites is a drag. Please make this better!! After reviewing a word from the list i want to go back to the list in a single step, not 3 or 4. Too many ads are a bit overbearing, we can all tolerate some, find the sweet spot.
  • Constantly paying...

    By Rameth279
    Look, I love the dictionary, I love dictionary.com, but this app is a rip-off. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve paid for different features on this app, but I STILL get ads when trying to use it, and there’s always something ‘new’ to pay for. Maybe it’s just me, but some of these things I couldn’t sworn I’ve paid for already, but they don’t show up as so. STOP charging for every little feature on this app and set a one-time price already, and stop milking people for money!
  • Word of the day!

    Word of the day push notifications are still not showing up on my iPhone even though the update said this was the focus.
  • Racist and Against Anyone Different

    By Mohammad B.
    I’ve always enjoyed and found so much comfort in Dictionary.com. But, recently over the past few years they have abandoned their once laudable focus on words and proper English lexicon to ironically allow and encourage improper English grammar. Worse, they have become increasingly more edgy and now seek to appeal and align with shrill and hate filled, racist ideologies that seek to put down anyone different than them. See the latest article of their app: “The United States of Diversity: Slam Poetry.”
  • The ads have ruined it for me

    By luvlikejc
    I use this app everyday. Now I have to put my hand over the constant blinking advertisements in order to focus on what I’m searching for. I can’t use this app this way. It’s a bummer because I’ve purchased several add on’s, so I lose out. Please let me know if you ever get rid of the advertisements.
  • BS

    By KaleeLeigh
    I’ve paid for this app once on an older phone and it literally never worked. It constantly crashed, you couldn’t even fully type the word out before it crashed. Endless updates, nothing worked. I stopped trying. I recently remembered that I had paid for the upgrade of this worthless app and decided to download it on my current phone and it’s prompting me to pay for the upgrade again.. with no option to restore purchases and no help from either companies.
  • such an incredible app!

    By jav-superjavi
    I love how helpful this is! I also like how it aproveches to teach a new word every day.
  • Advance mind set

    By Delete me out
    Getting new words help my mind develop to a different level I would recommend this to everyone I know who wishes to grow Thank you for having the option to explore
  • Ads are a buzzkill

    By Cmiester
    I understand everyone has to make their money, but this is excessive. I’ve used this app for YEARS but this last time I got on it, I received a pop up ad every 4 or 5 clicks. Shows customer satisfaction isn’t worth more than the money these advertised companies are paying you.
  • Excessive forced ads and redundant definitions

    By b_platz
    Very annoying when you want to look up a word quickly and are forced to watch an ad before you can. Also definitions will frequently use the shorter version of the same word to define a term which is obviously unhelpful.
