    Webster's definitions have much more depth than other dictionaries. I use it often, not just for learning definitions, but for obtaining a deeper understanding of the meaning of words. I even use it as a meditative technique, choosing a word such as 'calm' to internalise the full meaning of the word: 'peaceful, stoic, tranquil, serene.' It's very powerful.
  • A bit clunky

    Still not updated for screen sizes of phones that have been out for more than a year now. The interface is a bit clunky, too. Decreasing the rating, as the app regularly nags for a review, interrupting the train of thought. I did not pay for a dictionary to have it interrupt me rudely.
  • Love this Dictionary

    I love this book. I am so grateful for having this at my fingertips. It allows me to look deeper into the meaning of what’s being said. There so many times people say and use words that are not very clear.I use this tool for clarity. I give this five stars because there’s not 10 to give!
  • This is a wonderfully convenient & sufficiently adequate "definition" resource❗️

    By geraldmiah
    Again...I repeat (w/ additions)...this is a resource that is extremely convenient & sufficiently adequate, even 4 those of us who have "higher" educational certificates, diplomas, or degrees. It's main "selling point" (@ least 4 those of us who r of "average intelligence"--whatever that means) is that it's not overly "high-brow" or hard 2 understand. It is concise, & gets 2 the heart of every definition w/out the use of any excessive, flowery, or otherwise immoderate verbiage.
