  • Dictionary

    By srs1983
    This app does the job! I don’t understand why this app feels the need to educate via tweeter blurbs! There should be a focus on proper spelling which is most often ignored be tweets, messages and other similar forms of communication. Ebonics usage and abbreviations are predominantly used! I’m tired of media that should be neutral choosing some type of political position! Let’s face it, there are great numbers of tweeters that wouldn’t use or know how to use a dictionary anyway!!
  • More $$ are u joking

    Now that I have a new phone You want to charge me again For off line dictionary Are you serious
  • Getting worse ...

    By Jayden Durocher
    Way too many Ads.. too many videos... It’s free so one thumb on each hand gives you two stars.
  • Popular rather than informative

    By KFrankie533
    Regardless of anything I have to say, this app has so many typos that I cannot rely on a single definition. I wrote to the developers, so they know all about it and give zero in effort. I downloaded Merriam-Webster.
  • Great app

    By Larie Seras
    Lots of cool features
  • I Have Met The Fool And He Is I

    By drhesq
    I could research the definition of fool but even I know exactly what the word means. I have always prided myself on not being a sucker, like buying ridiculous or frivolous apps when I didn’t really need them. On the other hand, I can also be a fool by not acquiring a program where it is exactly what I need to solve a significant objective. I like to write, something my discursiveness clearly exhibits. But I have found, yet not perfected, literary economy. I have also found that a personal enemy, my most hated, is the mere appearance of redundant grammar. To me it indicates a lack of originality/creativity. This application, with its affiliated supporting software, provides me with the ability to defeat my despised foe. But to limit myself, or the reader, to a solitary basis for purchasing the complete application is idiocy. This computer aid can bolster an innate interest and ability to express oneself by penning thoughts in a much more professional manner. If one believes they are limited in their expression by their education or native intelligence all I can suggest is you have never found your own personal “cheat.” I do not use this term with its inherent negativity, I am advising those individuals to advantage themselves with tools that elevate their ability. I am not suggesting this software is a panacea however I am saying, for me at least, it works and well. If anyone likes to write, where others have commented on the quality of a piece you have written and these observations are inspirational, therein lies the seed which evidences ability. There are all too many of us who never see or feel that spark. If one has and it lies here, foster its growth with the dedication you possess to raise your greatest asset, in my particular situation and orientation, our children. Don’t cut corners where they merely serve to save you a little effort. This work aided by substantive implements is the investment. It is suggested that in almost every case the personal devotion is where the payoff is found and forever treasured
  • Lies, progressive lies

    By SFVeela
    How dare you claim to be a dictionary when you are spinning progressive lies? Net Neutrality is a misnomer, created by the Doublespeak Party. Net Neutrality means the government regulates the Internet. Remember when we had 69 years of Telephone Equality, wherein every home had a phone and a phone line? Net Neutrality offers a return to those days, with zero progress, all in the name of equality. Notice who wants Net Neutrality: The gatekeepers, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, so they can control user content and maintain their power. Net Neutrality lasted for 2 years; for the decades prior to that, the Internet flourished. Net Neutrality is about Facebook, Google, and Twitter control and federal taxation, not about free markets and the development of satellite technology to replace fiber optics.
  • Nice but could use less ads

    By Delaneperez
    Useful when reading for school assignments and published articles
  • So far so good

    By Rudy_Chasal
    Although I’ve had this app for several years, I just started using it. It may deserve five stars but I’ll wait to see what happens as I use it more. Actually, it’s going to be the dictionary I’ll use 99% of the time until I become convinced it’s the only one I need.
  • I love it and am grateful for it.

    By Matt Steinberg
    The interface is enjoyable. I appreciate the simple themed blog posts about words. I like how you can favorite words and the easy switch to thesaurus mode. It would be cool to have fewer ads, or at least a different type of ad. Those upper corner countdown ads are irritating. As a songwriter I’m always playing with words, and not just rhyming, but syllable breakdown - lining them up with different melodic lines and rhythmic ideas. It would would be cool to markup the words within favorites - have metadata. Like be able to write “about” the words, sort and group them almost by project, and have them linked to audio and journals docs in like a google doc or another app. Thanks!
