    By Marya Ellen
    Just found this gem. Gives your brain a good workout. Learned many new words. Fun to play against family members too. Time limit is quick.
  • Making words relevant

    Best approach to remaining relevant in the online world. Love social media posts and words of the day. Context, history and newsworthy.
  • Love this app

    By Nanc'
    Who knew I would spend so much time on a dictionary app. The Merriam-Webster app is the best dictionary app. The basic definitions are far superior to my other dictionary app. The word games are just an added bonus. Thank you Merriam-Webster.
  • Proselytizing

    By Lotion Soup
    I used this app up until I started getting regular ads for bible verses. I don't appreciate being proselytized to (ironically) by this educational app. My problem is not with all ads; in fact, I'm happy to support free services by viewing ads. My problem is with the many people who feel the need to indoctrinate uninterested people into their superstitious, nonsensical belief systems.
  • Love it!

    By MrsCJ
    It would help to have a list of words produced (autocorrect of some sort) when entering words into the search engine, since sometimes I'm TOTALLY clueless as to how the word should be spelled. Other than that, it's a great app.
  • Quick

    By ASLterp!
    I love the quick and easy way to find a word's meaning with this app!
  • Bev

    By BevCos
    I don't know what I'd do without this APP! I grew up relying on a dictionary and even at my age, I still rely on one. Everyone should have this APP.
  • Great app

    By KF in DC
    Easy to use to look up words (primary purpose), and I also love the quizzes!
