  • Nagging Users for 5 Star Rating.

    By TDLVIN2000
    A good dictionary overall. BUT, it immediately nags you nearly every time you open the app for a five star rating. For this type of digital coercion, I therefore give 1 star.

  • A gem for a wordsmith

    By catherinefromrye
    Each day from the youngest years of my life, I have had, and will always have, a profound experience with words. Nothing as important than the precise word, by which, we express ourselves with complete accuracy and knowledgeable outcomes, by the words that we choose. This is one of the best online apps, and I don’t have to hold a large, heavy text in my hands. A more than five star rating!
  • Too much advertisements on the app

    By guifiudduohhvxafh
    Why it’s comes to the main page automatically even if I’m reading the meaning of the word ??? Another shortcomings of this app is it doesn’t shows the bookmarked favorite works appropriately. Very unsatisfying !!!
