  • Last update bad

    By Happy "To Do" user
    Your last update to dictionary has resulted in app very slow to boot up and slow to locate words and difficult to return to the main menu and to clear the search box to enter a new word. Please, please fix it. I have an IPOD TOUCH4
  • This app is awesome.

    By Ser reader345
    This dictionary app has a dictionary and thesaurus.But if kids are bored of it there’s games for any age.The games trick the mind to keep you going.This is why this is the best dictionary app out there.
  • Superb

    By Fitzbattleaxe
    Glad I paid the extra few dollars for the full version. No adds, excellent functionality. The multi-tasking on the iPad is particularly great. Keeps me away from clunky internet webpages and the temptation internet browsing brings. The navigation is good, but perhaps could be slightly brushed up. Otherwise, excellently designed.
  • Great app!😀

    By conbalck
    This is app is great it has lots of words that you might need help with and has some fantastic games as well as word of the day which is also fun to look at! I recommend this app to children and adults to!
  • Always on my device

    By Perkgun
    I have always had a Merriam Webster Dictionary on my portable device. I had one on my Compaq iPaq and all of my iPhones. I still have a paperback version from my Navy Days. I used to read the dictionary and boot camp because there was nothing else I could get my hands on. Much to the dismay of my fellow recruits. I tried the Oxford dictionary but honestly it doesn’t live up to the its own hubris and definitely not worth the price. This is my go to dictionary. I would like to see a section for idioms and metaphors.
  • Dictionary

    By Brett Barto
    Not only will it help you spell words, and give you definitions but also challenges your knowledge in a fun way. A useful and fun way to learn and pass the time when you are waiting for something.
  • Love this app.

    By John G ( CA )
    Love the pronunciation, word of the day, & the games. This is the dictionary I use whenever I need one.
  • Seriously good dictionary

    By Solanir44
    This dictionary is a paragon of digital dictionaries. I bought it and was shocked at how good the user interface is. The content is top notch. Id give it 6 or 7 stars out of 5 but the system wont let me.
  • Great for studying!

    By stormfly the wyvern
    I study for Scripps spelling bees and this app is very helpful. It is a perfect mobile dictionary. I only wish that it worked offline.
  • Convenient 🙂

    By kc76421
    A dictionary in my pocket! I can’t stand “app-noxiousness” but I love this app! Having a dictionary in my pocket never ceases to amaze me 😯 In a word: Amazing 👍
