  • Annoying & Inadequate

    By joshgroft
    Immediately upon opening this app, one is greeted with a prompt to “Rate us 5 stars.” Not, “Please rate us,” but begging for 5 stars. This app bills itself as a “concise” thesaurus, probably because “woefully incomplete thesaurus” wouldn’t generate downloads. The app doesn’t seem to recognize some common words, despite being active on an Internet-connected device. Don’t bother, just go search for your word in your favorite search engine.

    Screen is frequently occluded by an invitation to give a 5 star review. Every time I use this app I get distracted by this crass piece of false marketing. Dishonest.
  • Crashes A Lot and Load Time Too Long

    What is wrong with this app? It doesn’t even work when you put in a word anymore. It worked fine before and now it’s just completely quit working, unless that is, do you want their word of the day.
  • Awful

    Sparsely populated with words. When I was 10 years old I might have given this more stars.

    My only complaint is that the favorited words are not alphabetized.
  • Waste of money

    Not as extensive as advertised. Wish I could get a refund, but that doesn't seem to be an option. Didn't even have the word "retro." Seems not up to date with modern language. For $10 I expected a lot more. Very disappointed. I downloaded a free thesaurus that is much more useful.
