Dictionary.com: English Words App Reviews

  • Dictionary.Com Review

    By Shaylannna
    Dictionary.com is so beneficial to my education because it is very resourceful for looking up the definitions of difficult words! ¡ Dictionary.com es tan beneficioso para mi educación porque es muy ingenioso para buscar las definiciones de palabras difíciles!
  • Horribly intrusive propagandist ads

    By Uramis1
    New version is littered with horribly intrusive propagandist ads
  • Flipping

    By Kurmudgeon
    I’m puzzled why this app does not flip into landscape mode. That is annoying.
  • Does what a dictionary should

    By twash13
    I think there should be a way to flip through favorited words, sort of like flash cards. I generally favorite words I don’t know so that I can come back to them later. The task of reading through favorited words is unnecessarily arduous.
  • Forced Ads-no fun!

    By M.att
    This app was decent, offering definitions for words (hence the name Dictionary). However, recently they updated to allowing forced ads to pop up in your face while you are in the middle of looking up a definition. So while quietly researching a word, suddenly a blasting loud video starts screeching from your phone trying to sell you a mattress! This app has become utterly useless unless you pay for no adds, which I won’t be forced into doing. If anything I’ll pay for a different app that offers definitions just to spite the makers of this app for so blatantly pushing me towards purchasing they’re add free version.
  • Dictionary

    By Millie in LA
    Just went to use the “medical dictionary” portion, that i upgraded to in the past... but it now wants another $2.99 for a new upgrade! What happened to the one i already had?? Also.. sooooo many pop ups! 🤪 Otherwise... would’ve given 5 stats
  • Fascism

    By Purseholder62
    Your definition of fascism is incorrectly defined as “right wing” My college dictionary doesn’t have that as part of it.
  • Too many ads

    By Mcredpearce
    Ads or annoying. Deleting now.
  • What happened ?

    By just another Aspir
    Haven’t used this app for some time. Used to like it, but now it’s difficult to maneuver through and just not as user friendly as it was about a year ago. I despise change for the sake change under the disguise of improvement. Sometimes things should be left alone. Familiarity and function are attributes that bring quality and usefulness to an app. Additions are good, changes should be more closely scrutinized before being executed. Don’t make changes that make the app appear foreign to the users.
  • Two major issues have made the app unusable for me

    By CamSchnackel
    1. Offline mode mysteriously disappeared a couple years ago. My app says to go to settings but it’s not there. Emailed support and they were unhelpful. 2. App frequently refuses to show any info, saying an internet connection is required. This is despite the fact that I do in fact have an internet connection. No other apps that I use have this problem.
