The free version is awesome! Easy to use and even the games are fun.
I use this app almost every time I study my Bible it’s nice to have it as an available tool when you study God’s word.
I use the free version & I’m very satisfied. The app allows me to have a dictionary @ my fingertips, as well as word games. Thanks.
Crash like crazy 1/5
Click on a word crash, bring up search bar crash, basically every function crashes the app
Much more convenient than logging a dictionary around 5/5
At one point in order to free up space on my phone I needed to choose which apps to delete. It came down to having to delete this app. I went and bought a new phone, and this was before the games was added. If you like to learn and get quick answers to your spelling needs then this app for you.
Great educational time filler while waiting for appointments etc. 2/5
I enjoy learning new words, I also like that I can review them as many times as it takes to remember them.
Its wonderful to be able to look up any word at almost anytime. It’s easy to use and user intuitive.
Good app I guess 4/5

I’ve got nothing bad to say about this app. It’s great! Perhaps could use more word history / derivation games, maybe synonym-antonym challenges. Anyway, l love facts, I love words, and I love this Merriam-Webster dictionary app.
You might try a translation service, or hosting dictionaries in Spanish, French, German & Russian.

Purchased Ad-Free after learning about it here, although the ads weren’t that intrusive anyway.
Original Review, December 27, 2017, 9:30 EST
I think it is excellent. I enjoy its authoritative content. I like the Word of the Day. I like the M-W word derivations.
Thank you 😊, Merriam-Webster!
Good good 5/5
By the update is upsetting
Amazing app helps me in my English III
Merriam Webster Dictionary app 5/5
Informative and essential.
AMAZING APP 5/5
This app gives you literally EVERY SINGLE WORD!! I have never used an app that was dictionary related. Not all dictionary apps give you the right definition, but this DOES!!! I RECOMMEND this app for ANYBODY, it doesn’t matter how old you are!! GET THIS APP! GET THIS APP!! GET THIS APP!!!
Clear & Concise 5/5
This Dictionary is easy to use and has Archaic Word usage, word usage by prominent authors through history and modern usage. I have yet to be disappointed in using this app. I expect to continue using this Dictionary for many months/years to come.
Best Word of the Day App + Fun Games 5/5
I used to read constantly in my youth and into my twenties but it’s so difficult to find ample time to physically crack open a book these days and read the amount of content that satisfies me, so I started listening to more audiobooks to keep up with my “reading” while performing menial tasks like washing dishes and cleaning floors/etc. But I have to admit my vocabulary unfortunately seems to be paying the price for this convenience! But the WOTD calendar and word games help to continue the expansion of my vocabulary, and while sometimes they are words I already know they are usually words that can be used in writing and sometimes even every day conversation, and it’s nice to be reminded of those fleeting words that aren’t quite seared into memory. There are so many WOTD calendars/apps that seem to think finding the most useless, nonsensical and out of date words in the English language is some great accomplishment, but it’s a waste of everyone’s time in my opinion. The point is to expand the vocabulary of words still in use, or words that at least have an interesting backstory... and Merriam Webster does just that in my opinion. Check out the games as well, fun and educational for all levels of proficiency!
Need More Time for Challenge Quizzes 2/5
I like the app and I love playing the weekly challenge games. However, I am considering not renewing my subscription because you guys are stingy with the challenge games and it is annoying.
10 seconds to read the question, think, analyze, and select the correct answer? The short time is especially noticeable since some of the questions are as long as a paragraph, in addition to the fact that we have to sometimes scroll down to see all four answer options because they’re so long. 10 seconds is not enough time. Give a time of at least 15 seconds time for each quiz question in every game.
Remember, some users use these weekly challenges as an opportunity to further familiarize themselves with obscure words. Make the learning process and information retention a friendlier interaction, not tedious and undermining to users.
Good clear definitions, with synonyms and antonyms, plus etymological references.
Keeps crashing 1/5
I love this app for when I need to look up words, but it keeps crashing and the past few updates haven't fixed that and makes the app useless. Please fix the crashes, I really miss being able to use this app!!
By Brother Harden Sr
Love this App. Really gets to you when a certain word will be applied to a situation and you know it's the right word. But you can't think of the definition. With this you can easily and quickly get the right definition!!! Sure beats chance of needing to carry a dictionary around.
Great app! 5/5
By Beetle Bailey 42
It does what I need, and is very easy to use!
I enjoy this app tremendously. I use it while i’m reading. It is easy & informative. Much easier than looking up a word in the dictionary the old fashion way. Welcome to the 21st century!!!
Love Love Love 5/5
I love the app. I see people complain about the ads but the ads at the bottom of the screen don’t bother me at all. I had it for a few years but just started to utilize all the features last year. Ive been missing out up until now... It keeps your mind going and I’m always learning something new. I recommend this app to everyone I know.
By dunn janjalani
Lacks plural words
A moment to think in the hustle and bustle! 5/5
There’s so many books out there to read, things to research, topics to learn about but just not enough time. Modern day living ends up being so busy that most of us put aside gaining our knowledge and just do the best we can to get through the day and keep the bills paid. This app provides a quick way to learn new things EVERY DAY! A lot of times we read through articles, hear something on the news, or even have a conversation with someone and there are words written and said that we just haven’t had the time to learn. This app provides a simple user friendly source of every word in the dictionary, quick and fun trivia that teach you while you play, and a new word every day just to make you feel a little smarter ;) I love it!!! And I love not having to google words anymore!!!
I like this Dictionary it says the word so one knows how to say it correctly. And know the meaning.

Love the brain teasers of this app!
Super Helpful 5/5
By Rad hgal
I love language and reading, and this app is so handy and convenient when I need a quick definition.
By Yeah it is true
It is NOT OKAY to change your ads to be obnoxious videos before viewing the definition. It used to be silent banners at the bottom of the screen only. If videos continue, I will delete the app.
Great Learning Tool 5/5
Marvelous application! Absolutely marvelous — the games, saving features, etc.! I have only one request — the option to listen to the pronunciation of, and save, the vocabulary in games! With genuine appreciations. SK
Educational & fun 5/5
I love this app! Definitions, words of the day, and quizzes to reinforce vocabulary you've learned. This expands my world. I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about: I downloaded this for free and then subscribed to the ad-free version for $2/year. I have had no problems with it.
“Nothing to see Here” for Word of the Day. 3/5
By GTD Meister
I would gladly upgrade if I knew the App wouldn't get mothballed in a few years … forcing me to purchase it again.
It's basically a subscription service, so stick to the free version.
By May toyo
I love Webster Dictionary since I was a kid😘😘😘 thanks for creating it in our cell phones 😘 😘😘😘😘
If you care about using words properly, this is a great app 5/5
By Wordy Dastard
I use this app regularly to check spellings and definitions, as well as a primary reference when I can’t access the internet. Love the Word of the Day and etymologies.
An Overall Fantastic Resource 4/5
I rarely stumble upon a word that is unabridged or can’t be found, and it’s typically slang. Overall, the app is lightning fast, gives you a load of synonyms, and provides alternate definitions. When you click through to another word, ex: an alternative or a synonym, an ad always pops up, but other than the inconvenient ads and requests for a review of the app
(here you go!) I find it simple to use, spot-on with definitions, and full of ways to expand your vocabulary. I don’t struggle for that perfect word as much anymore, so, [Merriam] Webster remains king.
Excellent app 5/5
By Sierva de Jesucristo
It’s an excellent resource to learn English.
Miriam-Webster! 😀 5/5
I am in luv with dis app. Gives great definitions for projects. Luv it. 😍😍😍😍❤️❤️😘😘
Old Guy 5/5
By Ted's Harem
The quizzes are very fun and comprehensive.
It’s got a dictionary so that’s good 3/5
But you can’t go back, as in there’s no back button in the app. If you search for something, for example, and click on a result, you aren’t allowed to go back to the alphabetical search results but instead need to redo the search.
Great app helps make sure you are using the correct words and spelling
Paid for app and still ads 1/5
I paid for this app on November 3rd to avoid ads and even received an email that I am ad free until October 30, 2018. I got a new phone a few weeks ago and my ads are back on. I have emailed the developer and NO response. They are scam artists! Be careful getting a new phone because any paid features won’t work anymore. These developers are ignoring emails
Very good 4/5
I love the word games in this app and also the word of the day. The ads every time I open it are a bit annoying but I'll live. Overall very good!
This app is PERFECT! 5/5
This is the worlds most simple dictionary! I have never owned an app that has everything that I would ever need or want in one app. It's just amazing. I LOVE that you have a word of the day and that you don't even have to look for the words you search for! It just pops up! Everyone that has this is so spoiled!! 😜
Best of the best 5/5
I have learned and continue to learn words and meanings on a daily basis for over five years. All, or mostly all from this app. I am gratefully content knowing that this help is within my grasp any time.
