  • Positive attitude

    By Jedinator
    I bought this app because the developer is positive about Apple on Twitter. He is not cynical. I have really enjoyed using the app. It is well designed and a delight to explore. Thank you for making it.

  • Everything you want from a dictionary

    By turkishoval
    I love this app and it always makes me happy when I open it up. It has all the meat and potatoes you want from a dictionary app: easy to use, complete and thorough, excellent origin details and Wikipedia info and a full thesaurus. It's also very easy on the eyes with a beautiful minimalistic design that is fun and clever without being garish. Every time I come here to look up a word, I end up perusing. Couldn't recommend more.
  • Great Dictionary!

    By Excel1001
    A good app. I like the look of the interface and it is super easy to use. I just wish there were more options for language. For instance, Chinese simplified or Chinese traditional.
  • Missing a basic notification setting

    By rcniman
    You can't set a time for the daily word of the day notification. This is absolutely ridiculous. Look Up sends me the notification in the middle of the night, meaning it gets buried with all the other notifications that I get overnight. Allow me to choose a time and I'll reconsider this app. It might be a fun app to browse words in every once-in-a-while, but currently isn't very useful as a daily vocabulary builder.
  • Nice interface, weak contents

    By _kunkun
    The bads 1. No offline access to dictionary 2. No access to dictionary in China mainland 3. Dictionary quality is questionable. I find oxford dictionary to be the most accurate out of others. But the offline app’s interface is terrible and old. 3. Searching for a word is not a snap due to network communications The goods 1. Awesome interface, it’s a joy to use 2. Easy to organize words one wish to learn 3. Cool icon!
  • Look up is a daily dose of nerd fun

    By ThouroughlyModlenMilly
    Hey this won’t show what I’m writing I would fix your review box Look up is an adorable little app I love seeing how esoteric the word of the day can be it’s always about 50/50 that I will already know it but my vocabulary is fairly extensive.
  • I love words.
