  • Needs some work

    By hoorayberet00
    I like to think that for the Pro version, that this app can truly help a user build up their vocabulary. I wonder if there is any way to have the app give a notification of the word of the day? Notifications can definitely help me build up this habit. For Apple Watch, I would love to see Apple’s Scribble for a user’s text input. This could be a great help if a user may not be familiar with the pronunciation of a word. Having integration with SiriKit and Universal Search would most definitely improve usage of the app and help to see this app replace the system dictionary. One other thought would be to see the option to send a word via Apple’s Share Sheet to the dictionary. It would be great to add a list of words defined and be quizzed on them periodically for mastery. When using Apple Watch to search for definitions...I frequently received an error message of “please try again” when trying to search for words. When searching for words using Apple Watch, and it actually does provide a result, it would be wonderful to have synonyms come up for a word that is submitted. I would love for the Apple Watch to enhance my learning by providing quizzes for previously sought out definitions or synonyms. And is there anyway to mark someone’s progress in terms of reading level or vocabulary level? Lastly, I am curious if they are looking for beta testers to help give feedback and make the app more robust.
  • No more voice search.

    Voice Search doesn't work. I had others download it to their phone, it doesn't work. The developer says there's no problem with it. Yeah.
  • Old version far better

    By GDEngineer
    I give the app 1 star because zero stars appears not to be an option. Back before they rolled out the new version that required payment to void ads, the dictionary data base contained geographical information and now it doesn’t. Try looking up Galápagos Islands in the new version; it’s not there. Beyond lame. I made a similar comment way back, but it appears now to have disappeared into oblivion. I have retained a copy of the old version on my iPad and never updated the version on my iPhone. I will continue to use the old version until it ceases to function with iOS. At that time I will say sayonara and regret the loss.
  • Best dictionary app

    Really great
  • Love this app

    By NoNockyy
    Love this app, not just for it’s ease in looking up words, not for it’s pronunciation guide, though I use that for every word, but for the daily word and games. I love it.
  • The voice recognition works so well

  • Webster's Dictionary

    Use it just about EVERY DAY!!! Use it in Sermon & Bible Study Presentations, as well as in my Insurance Business!!! As I Preach or Teach I EMPHASIZE the IMPORTANCE of the MEANING (Etymology) of WORDS. If I don’t, the Student’s conception may be completely different from mine, thus nullifying my INTENT and OBJECTIVE. I encourage my Students, who have Smart Phones and/or Tablets to download your Dictionary at our first meeting and to resort to it OFTEN. Content & Ease of Use is EXCEPTIONAL!!! 💥😍👍💥
