  • Favorite words

    By hdhbzu6774
    My only suggestion that there should be an option with the starred/favorited words to be used in a flashcard game. But it should be a free feature.. this app charges too much money for “added features” that I can get on other free apps.

  • Like a bad BF

    By I don't have one.
    His app often quits on me. I use it offline and even the simplest of words (I've tested it) will come up as a blank page saying "additional content". You're app is like a bad boyfriend; there's a lot of things I like about him, but he just isn't there when I need him most.
  • Politics of rhe left

    By DeDe Don
    Pretty good till you got political and showed your bias against President Trump in example sentences. Goodbye. Deleting you and finding more reputable app.
  • No credibility.

    By Paper Boats
    You lost all credibility when you include “personal identity” in the definition of gender.
  • Crashes

    By Frappé Bunny
    It keeps crashing. Does that happen to anyone else or am I just special? Edit: Problem fixed

    Love the app. I love that you can hear the word also so you know that you are saying it right. Am thinking about upgrading the app. Just don’t like the ads. And pop-up’s.
  • Ripped off

    By itesr
    Paid for upgrade, worked good with it, then suddenly upgrade disappeared. And I refuse to pay a second time.
  • Love It!

    By The Conspiracy Theorist
    I purchased the economical package upgrade and have access to medical and and science definitions of words. It's excellent. I can even become a rapper if I wanted because there's a tab that lets you see words that rhyme with the word you search. I also get words of the day on the app and via email. I'll be a wordsmith in no time! Thanks Dictionary.com
  • Video ads? Really?!?!?

    By AppleBot66plus
    This used to be a good app. I can understand an ad at the bottoms of the screen, but a pop up video ad? I’ll find another way to look up words. AppleBot66plus
