  • Simply the best

    By AintThatAShame
    This is the only online dictionary I use or recommend. It has so many (free) ways to help people expand their vocabulary, and these extras work for high school & college, to writing for personal reasons. That’s the extra that I use, and love, the most; the common synonyms & antonyms, but also M-W includes a lot much more. The one that’s best for me & my writing is the origin of the words, including the approximate historical date (in centuries) in which the word was “created” and who most likely created it. At times I find that the original meaning (as used when it was created) is very different to the present day meanings! I went ahead & bought the pro-version, as I use it so often in my writing. I’ve found that M-W the dictionary to be the most user friendly, & helpful. Apologies, but I don’t remember how much is was. I only remember that it wasn’t very much. Just try it, (even the free version still has almost all the things I’ve mentioned.) use it for awhile & compare it to the other online dictionaries. I’m confident that you’ll pick, & stay with, the Merriam-Webster dictionary. 👍🏼
  • Best ever and getting better

    By Robert Carpenter
    I use this app all the time, like a dictionary in my pocket. They improved the Word of the Day selection, so now the words are applicable to academic writing.
  • Fixes to make.

    By Green.T.74
    I will give M-W five stars again when: 1. They resolve the inconsistencies between the app and the online M-W. And 2. I see an unabridged option to buy.
  • Handy and useful

    By HidePounder
    A very nice addition to my phone, I use this app often and really enjoy the word of the day.
  • The Best!

    By Jim NY
    I think I have all the dictionary apps. The content is probably the best, and the app,itself is one of the most perfect apps out there. If only Apple could make apps this good! Only improvement — if hitting the Done button would take you to the most likely result instead of having to go to the upper right of the iPad to tap again. The fewer taps, the better.
  • Best

    The very best.
  • Brilliant!

    By Haydngoseek
    Great app!
  • Glad that I upgraded to the pro version.

    By Βελλεροφῶν
    The free version works fine and very well, only the ads’ constantly popping up sometimes compromised the experience. The pro version is totally worthy of the money and game changing. One small question: What’s the difference between the pro version and free version with subscription?
  • Great
