  • Review

    By Sseaberg
    Needs more Definitions & etymology. Not as comprehensive as many other dictionaries.
  • No thesaurus

    By Vicjae93
    I paid $18 for a dictionary and THESAURUS but only got a dictionary. I feel cheated and want my money back.
  • No pronunciation

    By jesustheking123
    I paid for this app without realizing that it didn’t bring pronunciation. I’m so upset because I often rely on pronunciation since I’m not a native English speaker.
  • Convenient

  • Word of the Day?

    By TBiedinger
    The word of the day selections are not worth reading. They are neither new or enriching anyone’s vocabulary. How is “Post Grunge”, “Pole Position or “Grand” going to enhance someone’s understanding or use of the English language.

    Great app. Useful.
  • Doesn’t include “fugacious”

    By Inasnit
    What kind of dictionary would fail to include such a lovely word? It causes me to doubt the entire work. This is not the only time this has occurred. I then go to dictionary.com and despite it lacking the impressive titular regalia of “Oxford,” I invariably find the word. Odd. Very odd!
