Love it! 4/5
By Level 1 Runner
I love to read classic lit so I keep my phone handy to use this app pretty constantly as I read. There have only been a few times when it would not find words that are too antiquated. Still, I love this app!
Good job 4/5

My favorite vocabulary & dictionary app. Very easy to use. Gives examples of word usage, origin of word & synonyms. Easy to change to Thesaurus too
What I like the most is the ability to play various vocabulary games that are better than any app!! Thank you.
This is a fantastic app!

Great app. Love playing the word game. I would however like a notification when there is a word of the day.
Great app! 5/5

The app I Learn new words with 4/5
The new Update has Halved the size of the App.This has been very useful on my 16GB iPhone 5, and 8GB 5C.
The iPad enhancements have made it a good Dictionary app for the iPad.Thanks Devs. This app is still useful as ever since I used it on iOS 4. Really well developed and maintained.
By María la Bandida
So easy to look up words. I keep my phone handy when reading just for the app! Games and quizzes are fun and challenging. My vocabulary has improved!

I agree with Marie
By Something w/r
Has everything you need. Very user friendly. Clean app. You won't need any other app once you try this one. Dictionaries are cool. The thesaurus is super rad. Use it all the time.
Can't live without it 5/5
I use this app at least once a day. I don't solely rely on MS Word's spellcheck, I need to feel confident of the context usage as well. This app helps me feel more confident how I'm using my words.
Very helpful dictionary app 5/5

Enjoy games, vocabulary builders
Two thumbs up 5/5
I love this app ,it's a part of my life now, I feel like I'm gaining knowledge on a regular basis.
I love this app - it is no exaggeration to say that I use it daily for some type of reference. If I had to share a criticism it would be that there needs to be less advertising.

Split screen please 4/5
Great app except I really wish it would support split screen on an ipad so I can actually use it alongside a writing app.
By Tony mamandi
It's awesome and really great
Best words 5/5

I LOVE THIS APP!!!! 5/5
This has every answer I needed for my homework! Thank you sooo much!!! Whoever is reading this you have got to try out this app!! It is the best!!
Unfortunately it's not possible to give zero stars. In fact, if I could I would give a negative rating. I've always respected Merriam Webster as the standard for their accuracy, neutrality, and objectivity. However, I've watched them lose these characteristics. as their definitions and explanations have become overtly biased. A dictionary company should NEVER choose sides in its work. I still value objectivity, neutrality, and integrity in a company, so I'm deleting this app.
Great mind exercise. I learn at least one new word whenever I play.
The free dictionary is easy to use 5/5
I wish iphone could allow it to sync as a useful instrument in the 'define' area of the iphone. No definition comes up when presented and it one selects web, ads appear. Please work on that idea. mjkauling@ hotmail.com
No complaints from me. Great homeschool helper! 5/5
By Mommy to the third power
I like it, enjoy it, use it and it gives what I want and more!
Ads are terrible 1/5
All the ads are terrible - full screen and some do not allow to close right away.

Just what you need. 5/5
It brings a lot of examples. The word of the day is just great. Awesome app.

Just like having a handy pocket dictionary at my side all the time. And learning new words is refreshing.
Useful app!👍🏼 5/5
By Babysitting boss
This helps me with my homework and Shakespeare's book. "Though art hard to understand!"😂😂😂
Ads ruin it 3/5
This dictionary app words pretty well, but the constant pop ups and bar ads effectively ruin it. I would be willing to pay for it if the ads were removed. For good.
Dictionary is what they do. 5/5
It's a dictionary, but correct just like the printed edition. No, there is not help in finding a word. Your phone or computer should do that. Other "paid for dictionary apps" should be a search help finding a word dictionary.
amaing app 5/5
it helps me a lot.
i like the function “world of the day”.
Good app 5/5

The best! 5/5
By Feeling Perky!
The most easy to use and interesting app I have.
Good, but... 3/5
It's bad enough to have to use the internet when I can't get the definition with this app. But what are Merrimack-Webster thinking when the website with the right definition - for free - is Merrimack-Webster's own site? Why pay for an app with fewer definitions than the free website?
