  • No more ads

    By Zilver
    They removed the ads on the free version. Back to being a fantastic dictionary app
  • Sharesheet And Back

    By ARickC
    In any app highlight the word. Check for shades of meaning. Then jump Beck to your original text. Audio pronunciations... So far dead reliable...

    Be careful. Buy pro and he’s likely to switch to subscription model and you’ll lose your investment.
  • Still the best dictionary app!

    By April and David
    Just wish there was a better way to integrate it into iOS but that is not Agile Tortoise’s fault. Thank you for the awesome app.
  • Good app, good update

    By cchelberg
    The app’s great. But that’s worth 5 stars. I’m writing here to commend the developers in removing the analytics/advertising frameworks in the latest version. I’m quite happy to see that.
  • Redundant, full of ads

    By dotHTM
    Just pull down from the home screen and type your word in the search bar. Apple’s result from the system Dictionary never has ads.

  • Updated out of Pro Terminology 3

    By @Sigil
    I bought this app. Well so I thought. I purchased Terminology 3 around 18 months ago. When I search in my previously purchased apps, Terminology 2 and 4 shows up. Where is Terminology 3. Why is Terminology 4 listed? Instead of making a separate app like he did before for Terminology (and Drafts), he just updated the Terminology 3 app to 4. This was not done for Drafts, which I purchased all, but the latest. I won't be buying anymore apps from this developer. I have access to Terminology 2 (Paid), but not Terminology 3 (Paid).... Really?!
  • I didn’t ask for an update

    By Pyk
    If you are going to charge for an update, release a new app. Don’t put ads into an app that I have already paid for.
  • I can't use it anymore

    By Malloware
    I got this app through Starbucks. I loved exploring words and phrases and learning how to use language more precisely. But now the Developer has folded in pestering ads that intrude and disrupt my train of thought as I try to leap through the skyscrapers of words and their meanings. The ads are annoying and I can't remember my inspiration when they block my path. I'm deleting sadly because the app no longer works for me. It was a wonderful experience while it lasted.
