This app is so helpful 5/5
I us this app a lot and it never gets old this app is amazing it is so helpful and I love the new games to l love the voice speaker
Simple but beneficial. 5/5
It's a dictionary! How interesting can it be? Well, readers, aspiring writers (like myself) and diction buffs love the resourcefulness, word of the day provisions and Vocabulary games conveniently available. I wish when I switched my iPhones my favorite words (data) could be saved and transferred but I had to start all over.
Way too many ads including popups 2/5
By Septa seven
I understand that I need to tolerate ads in order to have a "free" app, but this app presents an offensive quantity and quality of ads.
By Snire of Auburnia
Outstandingly superior dictionary app. One thing that would be helpful is a homonym section, or feature, rather.
I use this every day. So wonderfully simple and spectacular.
Useful, informative, fun 5/5
I use this app every day.
Thumbs Down 1/5
The free version is terrible. Definitely not user friendly.
Merrimack Webster dictionary 5/5
I have used this dictionary since I was in high school, College, and to my job it is the best. I am a better speller with this dictionary.
I love this app it’s Convenient strong sturdy robust virtuous compelling vigorous considerable substantial valued outstanding 👍👍👍
Great app! 5/5
I love this app and use it almost every day...and several times as I read. I have always loved words and find this app easy to use. Thank you MW for adding pleasure to my day and helping me to grow in my continual quest for expanding my vocabulary!
Mrs. Carpenter 5/5
I love the word of the day, even if you miss a few days you can always go back!!! Great way to increase my vocabulary.
I like to read old books, but I don't always know the meanings of all the words. This has been a great app for that. I really love the quizzes, they are a lot of fun!!
Better than the other Dictionary Apps 4/5
By snopp doggggg
It's a good app. The app makes it easy to navigate words and identify most variability with grammar. The one thing I don't like is the constant bombardment of adds. It makes the app feel less educational and sophisticated, more cheep and hard to look at. That is my one criticism, but I find it to be a rather large one.
Love it 5/5
Very simple and to the point. I love the added features of playing the word games. It really stimulates my mind. A great brain exercise for that memory retention.
Great with school work 5/5
It's easy I love it I don't need wi-fi to search the definition of a word. I love it I can study anywhere. Recommend
Great Learning Tool 5/5
Fascinating! Marvelous intellectual stimulation and vocabulary expansion opportunity! Recommendation for the application developers: Would love to see that we can save words from vocabulary challenges/games, and that we can hear pronunciations, simultaneously (if not possible for all, then for the correct word). Thank you for this wonderful application!!!!
Vocab Game is Beautiful 4/5
Nice app with features that worth tens of games. I will like if the player knew they were synonyms before each game started.
Really good app and super useful considering my hard on for words
The best 5/5
Lost two MW 5-Star dictionaries for this whiz-bang mediocre one 3/5
I paid $20 for the MW I had. It’s gone. This one is not nearly as complete. I could go back to excellent hard copies, but I already had them in my pocket. Big loss for me. I write a lot. I am usually looking for a comprehensive layout of word meanings. I also bought the unabridged for another $20 or so.
This one is for beginners.
Comprehensive, clear defining and spelling assistant 5/5
By Uncle J's Monsters
I appreciate the quick results and automatically saved recent searches offered by this app.
Quiz feedback 3/5
LOVE the quiz idea but needs more. If I get something wrong, I want to be able to review it, review the words I missed.
I love this app!!!! 5/5
By old lady betty
It’s legit the best, it has fun and engaging word games, and is extremely reliable. Would give 10 stars if possible.

Fun, easy to use 5/5
Never an issue finding a word
You're great 5/5
It's awesome and a really great help
It’s great and helps me a lot
It’s fine 3/5
Maybe a a bit too many adds but fine. Although I’m in real need of a back button. Like the thesaurus and the word save option but feeling like I lost some.
iPhone X comptibility 3/5
Please make it compatible for iPhone X
LOVE it!! 5/5
This app is so awesome!!! I use it all the time for homework. Just wish there were less ads.
New update is designed to reach the lowest common denominator. Now a 'dumb downed ' version comes up first. These definitions might be ok for someone in an ESL class, but lack the crisp, to the point definition one expects from a MW product. Very disappointing, especially since the update was made without notice, nor ability to opt out.
In addition, I paid for an ad free app when I first purchased this app! Now they want $1.99 a year, in addition to what I paid the first go around. I dug our my latest hardbound MW Dictionary, put within reach...Bob’s your uncle. This one is ad free, and feels nice, doesn’t require a battery and makes a fine door stop. THIIBBIT, find that in your app.
Great App 5/5
I love the clean look of this app, it’s usefulness, the word of the day, and the games are fun. I definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a dictionary app.
Webster Dictionary 5/5
Love this app ! The games are a learning experience but fun . It's a learning experience every time! Update! This app just keeps on giving! Love it ! 11-11-2017
Every word you can think of and more! Very nice love you long time
Out of control Ads 3/5
First, I legitimately use this app many times per day. I’m obsessed with learning and using words correctly and I look stuff up constantly. In that capacity-the app is one of my favorites.
And I understand that it makes sense to have adds. Plaster them all over and make your revenue—it makes sense. But literally ever other word I look up is a pop-up, full screen ad with no “close” box.
It’s just sneaky. You’re not YouTube, MW. Don’t make me go back to just carrying you in my pocket-gasp-in paperback.
Great app 3/5

The only tool you need for searching meanings for words! 5/5
I am so pleased with the new design and how simple and clear my search was and how much details and information was provided for me to get the meaning of the word that I was looking into!

What's not to like? 5/5
By delaware dude
You type a word, you get the meaning, and you can listen to how to pronounce. No more phonetics!
This app is amazing I recommend to all students who are in need of a dictionary, I rate this app a 10/10!!!
My everyday go to app! 5/5
This app is so convenient and a must have for me! Who knew being “smart” could be so fun. I love the word of the day concept. Thank you!!!
love it 4/5
Very simple to use
Thumbs up 5/5
Update: When you access the Word of the Day from the MW widget, the menu button in the top-left corner doesn’t function at all. Wasn’t sure if that was intentional or not. Either way, still love the app!!
Great app you have to use it 5/5
I loved it. We wait more from the app to help us. Thanks.
It is helping me learn words I never could quite understand! Thank you😊😍
By blix nax

Great dictionary 5/5
By Omaima 245
Gives explanation, pronunciation, and synonyms too for very reasonable price unlike the very expensive and not easy to use Oxfords.
A Must Have!!! 5/5
By Virginia Husker
Awesome app! Use it almost daily!!
Extremely Handy to have 5/5
By NYC Onionite
Always comes in handy when I get brain frozen and can’t think of the word I need! Has always been smooth and I’ve personally never had any bugs or hang ups whilst using the app. I recommend it to anyone that would like to increase their knowledge of the English language. Also, check out the UDD, urban dictionary definitions, it helps you understand today’s street slang. And it’s funny as heck too!
