    I enjoyed reading the dictionary as a kid; and having and having this app is much more convenient. When I’m reading a book, I can always be sure of definitions when coming across unfamiliar words. Install this app on the devices of your teens to help them to become more erudite.

    Starring words to favorites for later review is a fabulous aid in building vocabulary. It would be nice to see "flash card" capability to reinforce in future updates.

    I loved the original thesaurus app that seems to be gone now.. type a word and there is a list of synonyms period .. this app goes on and on of explanation and info per synonym ! It’s a waste of energy and time .. unnessary info ... deleting it

    I like the app but the app keeps asking me if I like this app and I keep putting yes and then the app puts write a review. It’s fairly annoying.

    This was a great app, ad supported, but the ads have gotten ridiculous, and there are much better options out there.

    I use this app at least weekly as I study not only to get information about words I do not understand but also to gain greater insight into words I think I comprehend. I have been using it for years. Love it!
