  • Too many ads

    By Captainwhacks
    I know the ads pay the bills, but the ones in this app are too frequent and intrusive, even for freeware.
  • Excellent dictionary

    By leonytse
    The only one I've found that allows me to share the actual definition and not a link to it. Recommended!
  • Useful, don't leave home without it

    By Trickyjet
    Very useful and it has a lot more to offer than other dictionaries.
  • Simple Truth

    By drive a
    Simple to use and certainly superior to Merriam Webster in authorship. But there again we are English and it should be.
  • True understanding

    By donna in alaska
    It’s so nice to be able to look at a sentence and comprehend it’s true meaning! When I’m reading it isn’t unusual to see a word that is new or unfamiliar. When I see the word I switch to the dictionary and learn the true meaning. I go back to my reading with a clearer understanding. It’s great! It’s so nice to have a feather light dictionary with me.
  • A wisp of a shadow of the original app

    By Liberty2001
    I paid $60 for the original app and considered it a bargain. The app was wonderful, had many features, worked well, easy to use - couldn’t really ask for more. Now, it is only a simple dictionary, nothing special, no features, and maybe even a less than average dictionary. Very, very sad. Jan 2019
