    I cannot do without this app as I read articles or solve crosswords. Constantly using to refresh my memory of less used words or understand better the context on how to use the word.

  • Missing personalizing favoritisms

    By 105bgchas
    Excellent in all ways except cannot create personalized favorite list. It does allows for a single alpha list but if you add too many words list will become overwhelming. Have found apps that allow you to group words into personalized folders to be more robust
  • Word Games

    By Foxpaw66
    Very handy for looking up definitions while reading articles and books when I don’t have convenient access to a 5-pound paper dictionary.
  • About the Word Games

    By regshaw
    I would like to see New context in each of the categories of the Word Games. I would like to see just an update of the entire suite of the word games. New levels are not as exciting anymore if the questions and the quizzes are exactly the same every time I choose to replay both older and more recent any added levels, modes, etc
