Merriam-Webster Dictionary Pro App Reviews

  • Recommended for daily use

    By Yfutdigy
    Overall, this app provides accurate meanings of words. In the future, I would like to see the explanations expanded in addition to using root words. Sometimes, I have to look up the root word and synonyms to capture full meanings of words. The Latin meanings are valuable and useful.
  • Great Thesaurus

  • Regarding look up history

    By Alec-tron
    I upgraded from the free version and wish my “recents” history could be accessible from the new version. I’ve kept the old version in order to re-look at the words in that history, but it would be nice if I could import them into the new version. Also, I’d like to see them in alphabetical order, rather than the order (sequence) in which they were looked up.
  • A little cluttered and could be more accessible

    By Zmholmes
    This app is pretty nice, and it has a lot of features for vocab building and the like. It also works pretty well as both a dictionary and thesaurus. However, it’s not the most streamlined. More pressing, some prominent elements are images, not text,. Therefore, they are not recognized by voiceover. This would be less of an issue, but these non text elements take up the majority of the main dictionary page. Additionally, I’ve encountered this problem where once I look at the word of the day, again, a big image at the top of the page that can’t be read, I am unable to return to the menu. The menu is there, but when tapping on the icon, voiceover reads the word of the day banner. Therefore, extraneous inaccessible components prevent this app from being my convenient, go to pocket dictionary.
  • iP SE v10.3.3 | iOS 11 version

    By Scootch Tastic!
    The only issues I have with this app, is that it doesn't contain the Medical Dictionary, or have a Rhyming Dictionary included, but I haven't had any bugs ever! It's worth paying for and if I recall correctly, it's cheaper than the Oxford Dictionary Pro version. Love the Word of the Day widget, the Word Games are fun and it's great for your cognitive function and brain plasticity, if you have issues. It's a 4⭐️ app, but I will upgrade it to 5⭐️, if they add the Medical Dictionary (at least), so I can use it in conjunction with other apps I use. ______________________________________ iPhone 5S iOS v7.1.2 (old review) I just bought this app and had to rate it! No bugs detected, and I could just use the website, but this is a great tool! 4⭐️ app. It would be nice to have the full Medical Dictionary included, so if/when they add that feature it's gonna be a 5⭐️ app for certain! If you want to complain about this application, fine! But freaking delete it and use the Oxford Dictionary app, Webster's website, or highlight a word and use the Define Feature that come standard on the iPhone! Enough with the complaints! Just use Google, Yahoo!, or Bing's dictionary (free dictionary). If I find any bugs I'll rerate the app and if it doesn't work as advertised, then I'll ask for a refund, which I'm sure the Developer will surely give. They seem like a solid bunch. 4⭐️ [end of review]

  • Save your money

    By fredfredfredfrr
    Voice search NEVER seems to be available which is what would have made is app better then the number of free ones that are available. Without it what’s point. Also the don’t respond to email request for help.
