  • Good dictionary

    By George Bellen
    Great definitions. Precise and concise. However I sometimes don’t find a word that I’m looking for. It could use more entries.

  • Very dissapointing

    By TravelGeeks
    I added a lot of words in favorites. When you open one of them only the last added word appears, not the meaning of the selected word, extremely annoying as this favorite feature was the reason why I bougth this app in the first place. Otherwise its cheaper to look up the word in Google

    The reminder to rate is obnoxious. Please remove it.

    The one thing for me that could improve this app would be the ability to copy definitions I want to add into a document. Other than that, for me this is a great dictionary...
