    Between looking up words to playing word games, this does it all. Great app and the one I recommend the most.

    I love this app because it helps me a lot by learning new words in word of the day. I used to have the free version but then I changed it to the pro version.

    My mother would read to me. Soon I was I love with words, then the combination of words to teach me about the world around me. Words combining to take me to different Countries, different realities and adventures. I love the ability to look up a word and get the proper definition, the proper spelling. “Word of the Day” Takes you to the root, the origin as well as the transition and metamorphosis that words go thru from country of origin, traveling through time and arriving in their present form. Thanks to my Mom, who is not with us anymore. Thanks to M-W for a wonderful source of knowledge and FUN! Well Done! Truly wonderful! David Scott

    For just a few minutes I played some of the games. Fun! Stimulating mind and curiosity. Having access to the dictionary and thesaurus. Just lovely.

    I use this app every day sometimes 4or5 times a day. It’s much faster than trying to look it up in a hardcopy dictionary. I’m so thankful I got the pro version.
  • Good but need improving

    It would be great if the developer could add words list for students to remember and IPA for pronunciation.
  • Extremely helpful

    Especially when my superior vocabulary annoys my boyfriend and I win the Saturday NY Times crossword puzzle. Apparently I already rated my dictionary friends. Well played!
  • My go-to dictionary

    It doesn’t have everything, but it’s comprehensive enough to help in 99% (totally scientific figure) of my word-related queries. I also love the variety of games! A must-have app for anyone even slightly curious about words.
  • I love this app

    If you like to look up words you don’t know and learn how to pronounce it, excellent app for that. If you enjoy word games, ditto.
  • The best out there
