    Easy to use, good content. Recommend
  • Garbage

    By tekkie52
    When I try to view the Word of the Day, I get a message: “Nothing to see here. You need network access to see the Word of the Day.” Of course, I’m connected to the Internet (“the network”) and every other “connected” app on my iPad works perfectly fine. Tried reinstalling a couple times, after which I can read 1 or 2 WotD before I get the message again. No response from support. A word to the wise: don’t waste your money on this piece of junk.
  • Good, some additions needed

    By Rphouglum
    Very great app. I use it for my masters work, no issues or problems. Desired Additions: I spell things incorrectly from time to time making it difficult to look up words in this app. A google like search or spell editor would be helpful in solving the issue.
  • Awesome!

    By loverofblues
    A great, useful, handy dictionary for on the go. Better, smaller and more complete than pocket dictionaries. Very concise.
  • Convenient 🙂

  • Webster Review

    By Gonzo71084
    I absolutely think this app is great! I love the “Word of the day” and the games (which by the way keep me busy.). Hey OUT THERE 😃 WEBSTER DICTIONARY app is for anyone who wants to improve their minds and their lives as only a superb vocabulary can.
  • Must Have

    By Jackcket
    There’s a lot of things that I like about this app. The most obvious is that it downloads all of the content (except voice recordings) so I never have to worry about having internet access and it still takes up a very minimal amount of storage. Another is the combined thesaurus feature. I like to use the app to educate myself as well as whip out a quick definition whenever I get into an argument about a word! This app has one me quite a few of those ;)

    I haven’t used the app enough yet, to give a positive review a the moment. So far it appears to be very good app. I’ll give another review in the near further.”MC”
