  • Love this ap

    By Rainmaker27542
    I use this ap daily as I teach and for personal study. It’s user friendly as a quick resource for a better comprehension.
  • Love this app <3

    By DiamonNdaRough510
    Every time I get a phone this is a must to download. Convenient, fun, reliable. I promise I'll buy it one day and I appreciate that it's free to a great extent. ***i do wish it had a word break down or a word origin feature. That would help me remember the definition which is the whole point of a dictionary. Still love the app ❣️
  • Let's FACE IT.

  • Ads made it shut down

    By Familias para el Cielo
    Every two words the ads made the app shut down so it was ineffective and cumbersome to have to look up the word all over again
  • So useful

  • Where is the big blue rectangle box with general definition?

    By warRobotsSucks
    We used to love this app and used it everyday. But the new version got rid of the top big blue rectangle with general definitions. Without this, my kids had hard time to understand the formal definitions which often use other big words to explain a big word. Now they have to switch back to their hard copies of student dictionaries. Too bad that the new version is so disappointing. For users who love the old version with blue rectangle box for general definitions, if you previously downloaded the old iPad version, you may still get it back from your App Store by checking the purchased apps (though you may not pay for it).
  • LOVE IT !!
