  • One of my Favorite and most used apps! 5/5

    By Mizael01
    One of my Favorite and most used apps! I love to learn new words. Use this app at least 3-5 times a week.
  • Very useful and fun 5/5

    By SheHaz6
    So I downloaded this app for the dictionary because I’ve been reading a historical novel and there are words that I’m unfamiliar with. So the dictionary is great! But then I discovered the games that come with and they are quick and fun and help build vocabulary at any age.

  • THE BEST DICTIONARY EVER! 5/5

    By ghddihgdd
    FIRST I USED DICTIONARY.COM BUT I FOUND THIS AWESOME DICTIONARY AND STARTED TO USE THIS FOR MY STUDIES!
  • Bug fix please?! 4/5

    By Dialy user
    This app is a treasure for those logophiles out there but also for those who just need to get their English homework done. I’ve been using this app for about 2 years now and I’m always learning, but I can’t say it’s as flawless as it once was. One of the most important features in the app, for me, is the pronunciation feature. I’m always keen on not only using the word right but pronouncing it correctly. This feature isn’t always guaranteed to work when I need it to, and so it’s become a hassle-albeit small. Please fix this small bug so that others like me can get the full experience of this truly amazing app. Thank you!!
  • Wow! So much knowledge! 5/5

    By dsny.fan
    I love this app. And it does not involve opening the actual book!
  • Super Polished 5/5

    By TheNewMike02
    Learning new words quickly is a very smooth experience on this app. It's elegantly designed and I love how it saves so many words that you looked up in its history, making drilling easier.
  • Very helpful 5/5

    By It's me--myself
    I downloaded this app for its dictionary and thesaurus functions, the word of the day feature and the word games are added bonuses. As for the dictionary and thesaurus, they are quite satisfactory. I like the pronunciation guide, and I like it that you can “favorite” words. The games are fun and educational.
  • 5 Star Rating!!!!! 5/5

    By Lousy Support
    This is THE single best app for Dictionary/Thesaurus needs. Hands down.
  • I love this app! 5/5

  • Get it 5/5

    By Mescalero Scout
    You’re never to old to learn!
  • Used more than you would think 5/5

    By GG VT
    Without exaggeration, I can say I use this app every day. When I downloaded it, I had no idea I would need it so much. I look up entomology, the meaning of common words we use all the time but don’t know the “true meaning” of, the pronunciation of words, etc. It’s just incredibly useful for me as a teacher and English speaker.
  • Great app 5/5

    By 1273748894
    Love the word of the day!

    By samengine2
    correct medium.
  • 👎 2/5

    By Buy a real Dictionary
    Although this is somewhat good, but like all the other ads they want to dip in your pocket to get rid of them.
  • The Dictionary/Thesaurus I Use Most Often 5/5

    By DocCoach
    Its as close as my iPhone and I use it several times each week. Being a writer, I especially like the instant access to the thesaurus. Highly recommend this app.
  • Not that good 1/5

    By asdfghkllbgf
    Not worth at all
  • So Far So Good🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ 5/5

    By Dayi~In~Gaming
    So far so good...... it gives clear definitions, and very good ones indeed. This is my #1 dictionary app when I don’t have a ancient dictionary😂. But seriously, Thus is an amazing app so far. I haven’t had to pay for anything yet, but I might have too. Also, no app/game is perfect
  • Great word of the day learning tool 5/5

    By 💛💙💜💚❤️🙋👍
    Very good!I looked to expand my vocabulary and I always go to Webster!!Love it!
  • Merriam-Webster Dictionary 5/5

    By Harpol1
    An excellent dictionary website. It is concise and gives the most important definitions. I especially like the feature that retains a list of words previously checked. Also much appreciated is the information on the etymology of the word, especially when that word was first used in print.
  • An amazing on-the-go version of my favorite dictionary 5/5

    By Nanimanidingding
    I’ve been using this app to study for my GRE. Being able to use this when I’ve left my dictionary at home or when I just need to look up a word I’m unfamiliar with is wonderful. Will use this app everyday.
  • Ads Interrupt tutor session 1/5

    By Rawwrrool
    I am in the middle of tutoring a student with the Merriam-Webster app but when I try to read the description of a word, an ad pops up and interrupts the session. It gets worse! When I try to return to the app and read the word definition, the app instantly returns me to the ad. This inability to read the definition and forcing advertisement to the point where the application is unusable is horrible. I advise everyone who is interested in using a mobile dictionary app to avoid this app.
  • Voice pronunciation 3/5

    By Lunox12
    I love this app and use it on a daily basis but the thing is the pronunciation doesn’t work at all. I hope they fix this issue soon.
  • A great go-to resource, which also comes to you. 5/5

    By jb2736
    When I need to know just what that illusive word means, I use this app. i get a comprehensive answer with definitions, pronunciations, examples, antonyms, and synonyms. Could I ask for more? Then there is the word-of-the-day feature. Up it pops every morning. It is educational without being pedantic. The writers even know how to make etymology entertaining. Love their wit!
  • Click of the App! 5/5

    By indiana sue
    Imagine carrying a 989 page book in your pocket or purse all of the time! So easy not to be lazy and reach for your phone to look up a definition of a word you’ve never seen before even if you are over seventy!!!! Word of the day, synonyms, word usage...all fantastic on this easy to use App!
  • New Update Does Not Support Audio Pronunciations 1/5

    By DrChurro
    Let me start off by saying that this is my favorite app in the world! Unfortunately, I can no longer firmly say the former statement because the best feature, audio pronunciation, no longer works on my iPhone. Please fix soon!!!!!
  • Love this 5/5

    By Kittyclan
    With in moments I loved this to my deepest ability! Worth all the downloading time!😆 I encourage everyone to get this for fun or for educational purposes. Thank you for reading! Enjoy that app!

  • Love it! 5/5

    By Spellgood
    The word games are a good touch. It would be nice if the definitions included an image of the word otherwise i like the format.

  • Awesome App!! 5/5

    By Mr. Junkle
    Great dictionary, awesome app!!! 😍 Love it!!!
  • Nice, but... 5/5

    By Ashwing of StormClan
    I love it, but two suggestions: 1) if you could maybe have a children’s setting, or at least provide another definition for some of the tricky words, that would be great. I’m using this to define terms in Physical Science, and some of the terms you use to define words are very... obscure? Uh... 2) some terms aren’t in here—again, studying Physical Science, it would help if you could add some more terms. And I’m not reading a new textbook, actually it’s eleven years old, so they’re not relatively new terms... Anyways, other than that, it’s great! Also I love how you can mark words as favorites... *mischievous smile* that’s going to get really fun! Haha! Anyways, this is a great alternative to carrying a dictionary around wherever I go. I love it, save those two problems! All right... I guess I’ll have to find a way to wrap this up. Hmmm... oh well. Five stars, top notch, yeah. Great job! ...Aaaaand I’m going now. Thanks for sticking with me! ;)
  • amazing! 5/5

    By savannahgraceb
    literally the best app ever. it makes the dictionary so convenient and you can even look words up offline! i really like how you can switch between the dictionary and thesaurus. overall very well done.
