    Every time you open this app it nags you for a review like a pitiful desperate child seeking validation. A secure dictionary would let me use it to look up words.

  • Good but nagging

    Useful and easy to use but seems a bit sparse compared to the Oxford Dictionary if English. Constantly nags me to leave a review, which is maddening (one can close the nag screen by clicking on the word search area but they finally wore me down).
