Dictionary and Thesaurus Pro App Reviews

  • Not Bad Words, Just Good Words!

    By BubbleBuddyFan
    I don't like bad words either! I like good words sometimes too!
  • Fantastic reference tool which is accessible with VoiceOver

    By amir81s
    This is one of the most awesome dictionary apps out there, and does wonders especially if you’re online and have Internet access. It is also accessible with VoiceOver, Apple’s screen reader for the visually impaired. However, I can’t figure out how to use the audio pronunciation feature with VoiceOver. Furthermore, The app has a couple of unlabeled buttons at the bottom of the application window. I also suggest that the app be updated in a way that it can use the latest revisions made to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English language. Currently the app uses a slightly older revision of AHD 5. I wholeheartedly recommend this app to anyone who has a vested interest in English.

    This is the only dictionary that I use on my electronic devices. It has easy assessable tools. Awesome!
  • Constantly using

    By panama reddevil
    I truly enjoy this app I use it all the time. There are times that I hear a word that I’ve never heard before and have no idea what it means and if I can pronounce it the same way this app will find it and explain it, great app!
  • Great app - dislike forced review

    By fusionmuck
    The dictionary app is great. But I dislike apps that force you to review it by interrupting your usage and force you to review it.
  • By far the best dictionary. Used frequently. Writers’ essential.

    By fjpoblam
    Better, faster, less cluttered than that “other” dictionary for which I paid so much. (I ended up writing that one off.) Good that it provides access to American Heritage expert deep etymologies (for word geeks). Not just a spellchecker. A handy thesaurus to help you with Hemingway’s 4 rules. Front and center on my home page.
  • Great Help

    By Bunker0311
    I use it just about every day. A very good program to have nearby.
  • Helps keep me sharp!

    By KBGunny
    I have taken to opening the app every day to learn something new or challenge myself with the word games. I’ll be 69 this year and enjoy continuing to learn!
  • Way beyond the expected!

    By dreamn.jane
    This app is an amazing dictionary, comprehensive, thorough, and well organized. Plus it is so much more! It also includes translations into other languages, a thesaurus, medical and legal dictionaries, acronyms, and access to other resources such as Wikipedia. It adds fun ways to learn and play with language for those who like that. sort of thing—you can even organize your personal home page for this. I have tried other dictionary apps and nothing else comes close!
