  • iP SE v10.3.3 | iOS 11 version

    By Scootch Tastic!
    The only issues I have with this app, is that it doesn't contain the Medical Dictionary, or have a Rhyming Dictionary included, but I haven't had any bugs ever! It's worth paying for and if I recall correctly, it's cheaper than the Oxford Dictionary Pro version. Love the Word of the Day widget, the Word Games are fun and it's great for your cognitive function and brain plasticity, if you have issues. It's a 4⭐️ app, but I will upgrade it to 5⭐️, if they add the Medical Dictionary (at least), so I can use it in conjunction with other apps I use. ______________________________________ iPhone 5S iOS v7.1.2 (old review) I just bought this app and had to rate it! No bugs detected, and I could just use the website, but this is a great tool! 4⭐️ app. It would be nice to have the full Medical Dictionary included, so if/when they add that feature it's gonna be a 5⭐️ app for certain! If you want to complain about this application, fine! But freaking delete it and use the Oxford Dictionary app, Webster's website, or highlight a word and use the Define Feature that come standard on the iPhone! Enough with the complaints! Just use Google, Yahoo!, or Bing's dictionary (free dictionary). If I find any bugs I'll rerate the app and if it doesn't work as advertised, then I'll ask for a refund, which I'm sure the Developer will surely give. They seem like a solid bunch. 4⭐️ [end of review]

    Voice search NEVER seems to be available which is what would have made is app better then the number of free ones that are available. Without it what’s point. Also the don’t respond to email request for help.

    Webster Dictionary the best word correct spelling
  • So helpful from real this writer

    By FigsForBreakfast
    Totally worth it to purchase this app. Love the etymology, the thesaurus is deeply helpful and I trust the definitions. I grew up using a Merriam-Webster dictionary and still have a falling-apart edition on my desk but sometimes the app helps me go deeper to find exactly the word I want.
  • Love it

  • It's outstanding and I owe much more to this dictionary app than the English teachers

    By Lovephilia
    I have been using this app from the beginning of its publication and I have been enjoying the functions that this dictionary has brought alongside. Thank you to the team. I'm hoping the message will encourage the team to improve further and continue to surprise the readers/users.
