  • Love it! 4/5

    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!

    By arkcraft
    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.

  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Avi-jah
    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.
  • Hdhdeujdhfh 5/5

    By Whoa.z
    Awesome
  • Fun 5/5

    By Nurseolson
    Great mind exercise. I learn at least one new word whenever I play.
  • The free dictionary is easy to use 5/5

    By luvbunnies2
    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

  • Ads ruin it 3/5

    By DragonsFate
    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

    By Debbie52253
    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.

  • The best! 5/5

    By Feeling Perky!
    The most easy to use and interesting app I have.
  • Good, but... 3/5

    By SilverNickel1920
    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?
