Merriam-Webster Dictionary App Reviews

  • Quintessential Dictionary App

    By christopher duder
    Fantastic. I use this app everyday. Love how easy it is to use. Games are a nice addition.
  • Great App

    By Honeymel71
    I have really liked this Dictionary app. I love that it gives older definitions, as I use it to look up words I read in the King James Bible. It gives me insight to the scriptures and helps me understand them better. I love that it gives the origin of words. I haven’t tried looking up much modern slang, but saw that another reviewer said that it is updated regularly, so, I will probably check that out, too! I had tried other Dictionary apps, but really have liked this one best. Thank you for a great app!
  • A must-use application

    By Hamza Elkouar
    This app is wonderfully helpful, I can find words I couldn’t find in other sources, and more than that it draws me more deeper in English whenever I test my vocabularies because I learn a myriad of new words I never saw or heard of before! Thanks for the app.

  • Easy to use; sparks interest

    By Expat in Hungary
    Besides its user-friendliness, I love the word of the day, games & etymologies. They make language fun.
  • Not user friendly.

    By jbright888
    To use the app I had to open it, type in a word to search for a definition or spelling, then close and reopen to perform additional tasks. The < back bar was obscured by adds that would not go away.
  • Helps a lot !

    By JStunna711
    The thesaurus comes in handy when typing emails.
  • Love it

    By #Braingames!
    I’m fourteen and use this app all the time. I would give five stars if you got a notification showing you the word of the day with the definition. Or if you made the same thing a Siri shortcut?

    Appreciate having a “portable” dictionary with me at all times. Can instantly find the meaning of a word with which I’m unfamiliar.
