    Very good to study English as a second language!
  • Quick and convenient

    By Austin Cozby
    Finding words I don’t recognize or fully understand is exciting, I have always enjoyed looking them up and learning meanings. This app takes the “let me find a dictionary,” or “write this down to look up later” situations out of the equation. Super convenient, a dictionary you can take with you anywhere.

    By dr.terwilliker

    actually i’m very surprised, only down fall is that they charge a annual fee to remove ads, would of been exceptional if they just hit us with a one time fee..... i guess i’ll just hace to get use to the advertising 😒
