I love this. Don't change s thing.
My "go to" app!!! 5/5
Great dictionary app! 5/5
Great, easy to use app that does exactly what is needed!
I was robbed! 1/5
I should have read the reviews first but DO NOT BUY ANYTHING from this app. I purchased the "Power Pack" which is supposed to remove ads, provide an offline version of the dictionary, and include a few other features which can be purchased separately. I've sent them a message and I have NOT heard back from support. This is straight theft if they do not honor the agreed upon purchase. I spent $5.99 for nothing.
Great app 5/5
This app is helping me prepare for testing involving words that are not part of every day language. Awesome
Super helpful 5/5
I use this app when I'm reading mostly. I can quickly check up how to pronounce a word correctly and/or what it means. Very useful indeed :)
SO darn useful!! Love learning new words so easily just by flipping on the app!! Thank you
"Ranked highest in exposing users to potentially aggressive surveillance" 1/5
By NR's iTunes
"The Wall Street Journal has previously ranked dictionary.com highest amongst the top 50 sites exposing people to potentially aggressive surveillance". Wow.
Great Ap 5/5
I love how easy it is to look up words while I'm reading my books.
The Best!!! 4/5
My favorite dictionary. I just wish the definitions were as comprehensive as Webster's.
Works offline 5/5
Which is helpful to me when I travel.
Really great even without upgrades 5/5
I used the app for a long time and I recently bought the big upgrade pack. It's even more amazing now and it has functions I didn't even know I wanted. I really wish I could take the quizzes on the app though.
Lovely new look but it performs oddly 2/5
I have an iPhone 6s and the latest iOS but for some reason when scrolling left/right through the new carousel, the graphics turn into "placeholders" while in motion.
Also, recently I noticed the Word of the Day widget for iPhone no longer works! :(
Widget: Unable to load 3/5
By Bee Nize
The widget Word of the Day hasn't been working for a while.
Liberal bias 2/5
Very disappointed! I have been using this app for years. I just realized that those who write for this app are openly liberal. I looked up the word "fascist" and it shows the following as one of the definitions: "a person who is dictatorial or has extreme right-wing views." It's very sad you couldn't keep your political views out of the app. I'll be looking for another dictionary app and delete this one.

The best 5/5
A reader's best friend
Love it 5/5
I'm a full time student. It always helps to have a dictionary right on your phone.
Great app 5/5
This is great for traveling in Spanish speaking countries because you don't need wifi to look up words.
Widget not working properly 4/5
I love this app, but the widget never seems to load the word of day. Nevertheless, an amazing dictionary app!
By Bilawal Baig
Last version of this app was crashing!! After updating its still crashing! Reinstalling also didn't help! Fix it please!!
Great app 5/5
Great help for me
Love it. 5/5
Wonderful assistance 5/5
This is a wonderful app to have when you need a little help to make sure your keeping it 💯!!! Lol!
Best dictionary available, but could use some improvements. 3/5
By Zoë Too.
I like this app a lot, but as some of the review point out there is no way to communicate between multiple devices, also "they" want you to pay to update to premium in each device you own.
Great app for my illiteracy!
Dictionary par excellence 5/5
By The Sound Maven
My go to dictionary! Trust no other !
I really like it! 5/5
By Dreher Bros.
It's nice to have it ready when you need it.
Love this app! 5/5
I'm a writer and this app aids me in constructing beautifully written prose. Grateful to have such an amazing tool on hand!
It works 3/5
Loses a star for the stupid word of the day pop up.
Useful app 4/5
App is very useful for basic lookups. Every now and again you can find a word that is not retrievable but otherwise better then carrying around a pocket dictionary. ;)
Should have upgraded sooner! 5/5
By Nels Svenson
I use it daily.
Lost ~30 MB Again Because of... 4/5
the addition of stupid unnecessary features like word quizzes, local tends,...i lost ~30 Megabyte of free storage space after this "bug fix" update! We're supposed to be gaining space after a bug fix, not the other way around!
Can't use it without internet connection 5/5
By Factbook junkie
I have used and loved this app for years. (Probably over 10) When they started with ads and offered to remove them for a price, it was a no brainer and I even upgraded that! When I got a new phone and had to download it, but they did not honor my purchases so I had to go back to seeing ads, I overlooked it though It was irritating. But now, I have shut off my internet service (bad service), and I have to go to MCDs (no coffee house for 25 miles) to use the app. I am sadly letting it go. Farewell my friend...
Great reference! 5/5
Great app for the on the go spell check!
Good app 4/5
Quite convenient mobile dictionary. Has a lot of definitions to each word for better understanding. I like it.
from full version to lite??? 1/5
By mr dud
piece of junk now
Liberal bias 1/5
This app has a liberal bias. The definitions themselves aren't (usually) incorrect/biased, but the app developers write little paragraphs about many buzzwords and put them on the home page of the app. For example, the app will say, "xenophobia. It is our word of the year because so much of it has been displayed in first world countries, such as America." It's just sad that the developers would stoop so low as to grab at straws like that to push their agenda.
"bug fixes?" 1/5
Hello. In all seriousness, what kind of a description is "bug fixes" for an update to your users? Don't you want to let us in on what you've been working on to improve our experience as further reasoning to remain users? This app is getting harder to support as money seems to be becoming a bigger deal. Good thing I use the oxford dictionary on my Mac all the time instead.
Love it 5/5
It's soo useful when it comes to looking up words that I don't know. Handier than an actual hard copy. Although I find it sad that books are becoming outdated. Either way.
A wonderfully simple app. Everyone should have one!
Hard to support 1/5
Dictionary.com used to be my most preferred source of information, as their blogs, slideshows, and definitions were all accurate, straightforward, and, regarding the former, captivating. But, recently the I've found it rather difficult to watch as the app's quality plummeted, I don't know if it is a change in management but Dictionary.com is associating itself with all the folly of modern society, and with each new "trendy" or "modern" slideshow topic or blog it tears apart its standing as a reputable source. Frankly one would be better off looking in hot new magazines for better material. It really is surprising to see the change in Dictionary.com's content, its as a teenager rashly buying superfluous items just to fit in at school. I'm personally switching to oxford dictionary, at least they are able to stand their own ground instead of being "driven and tossed". I'm not impressed. At all.
It's a dictionary, but... 5/5
It's also the most comprehensive thesaurus I came across, which is nice. It never crashed and it's fast. I recommend it.
Crap upon crap 1/5
By Richard 2nd
I cannot believe the unmitigated disgusted feelings I have for your dictionary and your inessentiant crap that I must endure by it use. You have run the usefulness of service you provide into Hell.
Quick & easy 5/5
I love the ease of checking on meaning or spelling right at my fingertips.
Great app 4/5
I absolutely love that I can look up any word at my convenience, it makes life easy and smooth. Veryyy disappointed that you removed the translation feature!!! Half of my use of this app was translating languages. Bring it back please!! That was one of the main reasons I downloaded this app...bring back the translation feature!!!!

Does the job
Don't buy not updated for new iOS 1/5
Don't buy not updated for new iOS. The app is pre 64-bit won't run on future iOS. Every few launches, iOS warns if not updated will not work on new versions of iOS.
