  • American Heritage Dictionary

    By Marisa R M
    The best.
  • It’s all here

    By S1K2togPSSO
    The American Heritage has been my favorite dictionary for decades. And this app has it all, the roots of the words, the usage notes, every possible definition of every shade of meaning, and even spoken pronunciations. I’m going to finally give away my very large hardback in favor of the app.
  • Love these Indo-European roots!

    By Billykershaw
    I am thrilled almost every day by this dictionary. The definitions are thorough, the word origins are as good or better than most, and the Indo-European roots are an unexpected and wonderful surprise. Congratulations, American Heritage!
  • Love it

  • Five Star Review

    By Dashbach
    You are very far from five stars. You are nothing more than a desk top dictionary. You forget that you are competing with google and the free dictionary by Farlex. If I can’t spell a word correctly you are no help. Your history and usage of words is skimpy. You make me pay an exorbitant fee periodically to continue to use your app. You are slow sometimes and your request for a five star review every time I open your ap is annoying. Remember I paid as much to use your app as to purchase a hard bound dictionary. For the price I expected a fairly extensive history of words
  • So far, so good

    By Hardworking dude
    Nice interface, easy to use. Has audio pronunciations, if you’re not sure.
  • Audio does not work?

    By sat2016
    While there is an icon for pronunciation, it does not work. This electronic dictionary is totally silent!
  • Excellent

  • Kick the Annoying Rate Me to the Curb!

    By Mlyon83
    This app costs a decent amount of money and I do not wish to be asked to review it every update! Either allow paid users to only be asked once, otherwise I will download a firewall to block any updates for the app just to avoid the rate spam feature. Don't annoy your paying customers every update! That's unreasonable!
