  • Great app.

    By Calbanese3
    No complaints at all. I like that you can press on a word in a definition if you need a definition of that word.
  • Excellent app

    By docweddle
    I really like the word pronunciation (heard thru my iPhone enabled ear phones) part of the app.

  • Best dictionary app out there

    By Mark the Book Lover
    I have used this app for many years. It is my go to dictionary and comes in particularly handy for reading old classics where I often have to look up uncommon words. I always find the word I am looking for. I particularly like the etymology that tells me the origin of the words. You can even find common foreign phrases in this dictionary whether it be Latin, Greek or French. Overall, it is extremely helpful and very convenient to have it always right next to you on your phone. I wouldn’t do without it.
  • Excellent dictionary app!

    I am a tutor and recommend this app to my students all the time. I especially like how it tells my students how to pronounce the words with the voice feature.
  • Unending requests for a review

    By Bikkus
    The dictionary is not bad, although it is lacking many words. What is irritating is that every single time the app is opened, it requests a review. I think this behavior is unacceptable for a paid app.
