  • Forced adds are ruining it

    By Tayylorco
    I understand the need to make a profit. You guys are a business. I get that. Forcing people to interactive advertisements is crossing the line, though. If I have to play a tutorial of a game in the hopes of an exit button (there wasn’t one), I will just delete the app. It’s faster to go online than it is to fight your way out of the ads.
  • can't hear the pronounce

  • Can’t add to the comments section

    Can’t add to the comments section of words that you save. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    By SunnyFtW
    I recently upgraded this app and everything I had went away I wasn’t getting word of the day I uninstalled and reinstalled still nothing I emailed for support and was told there are some bugs that they’re working out... I turned on WIFI and everything came back very happy!
  • Really???

    By Heyitsjeremy!
    I’ve bought the downloadable version of the app, but it’s been saying that there’s an error downloading it over and over again. I tried killing the app, waiting for a while, but the error window keeps on popping up! Please fix!
  • Great app

    By Getyuio
    Love the app but review process is ridiculous. This is my third and final attempt to write a review. I hit send and it deletes it or the nick name is taken and the entire review is deleted. New review : HEADS UP - if you have iPhone 7XR the sound is disabled for the Pronunciation feature if you turn off the ringer on the phone. This was not an issue on older iPhone models. I freaked out when I could not hear the pronunciation. I deleted the app , reloaded etc. and still no sound. Finally I thought to try turning ringer on and sound was restored to the app.
  • False Advertising

    By Unlooon
    The description should have been more elaborate than being vague and mentioned that Offline words are only accessible when you pay 2.99, otherwise we would only be able to use this dictionary whilst online. An Offline feature with ads would have been much more feasible. Thanks for nothing.
  • No Sound

    By Gittsha
    There is no sound for the past month when I touch the button to pronounce the words. Can you check it out please? Thank you. There is no audio. Help!
  • Server errors when trying to download offline dictionary

    By %@-#$+=&*/;():,'l.
    I sent an email about this with no response. Too bad, the previous version presented no such problem.
  • Don’t pay for any extras

    By alismcg
    My acct has been charged but I was not allowed to download the offline database. I dumped the app to download again and there’s no Restore Purchase button; just a sign in to buy again. Support has not responded to my request either. CAUTION
