    Good app if you want part of a dictionary. I’d pay for the extra features but words are not an extra feature in a dictionary. I want all the words.

    I keep the Merriam Webster on my iPhone’s app dock so that it is always near when I need it. It has had every word I ever needed and never let me down on definitions (though I do disagree with some...sometimes) and I use the thesaurus often. Great app - simple, useful, and truly an asset to my life.
  • Like it, it’s fun.

    By Nana from WI
    I love giving my grandson a new word every morning...and then we, together, look at it meaning. Then, when is parents pick him up at the end of the day, he says the word and what it means! One word at a time.......building a future! Love this app!

  • The review

    By seantian233
    The dictionary is not bad, it provided the pronouncement of any vocabulary, and the prefix and suffix of the words, I never seen any of one of dictionary can be so predominant. But I some time the vocabulary have no voice when you just touch the voice button .
