  • Great definitions

    By Holmes 24
    The only complaint I have is that I wish it were easier to copy, cut, and paste. Usually if I want to use a definition I have to type it out word for word.

  • No Copy Function

    By Lostmymoneyonthis
    Other apps (Merriam, Longman) allow you to copy pronunciations, definitions, or examples. If you need that function to learn new words, this is not your app.
  • Fast and unencumbered

    By NorvinRoy
    Best of the lot so far. Nothing but the point here, clear and concise.The pronouncer could be sharper.
  • Add to favorite

    By Turnerinn
    When I add a word to my favorite, I wish I had a list of my folders in favorite to pick without going back into favorite and moving it
