    By mpdcib
    I’ve used it mainly to look up word in crossword puzzle and the definition are great but lately I’ve use it more in my everyday work environment.
  • Latest version dropped a 5 to a 1

    By Bob(Swede)
    Used to love it. This version seems more like a grade school version on the actual definitions... lots of add on that some people might like.. word of the day, games, etc... But as a dictionary it has significantly slipped.
  • Retired

    By Shih Tzu Momma
    Love the app. It is a great way to expand my vocabulary and exercise my brain.
  • Microphone no more

    By Winter salt
    Microphone completely stopped working. I tried other phones too. It's the app. The best feature gone.
  • Great dictionary and go-to reference

    By Reub 4Rhapsody
    I have the annual subscription for the website and purchased the app to complement and I have been impressed. I enjoy the word games in particular, especially when stuck commuting in public transit, airports, etc. The dictionary and thesaurus are clear and being able to tap any word in the definition is really helpful and separates the app from others.
  • Miriam Webster Mobile App

ANTONYMS *** It Simply “HAS YOU COVERED !” <[ TOTALLY # 1 user friendly ]>
  • Simple, Elegant, Useful and Fun

    By Dr. Rhetoric
    Simple, elegant, astute, and entertaining - this app does exactly the work one would expect (definitions and synonyms) while including the pleasures of features like “word of the day” and assorted word games. I can’t imagine referring to a mobile phone as a “smartphone” without having this app on it.
