  • Buggy Favorites

    By OniSock
    I really like the app but a huge part of why I use it is because I’m able to save words by favoriting them. I saved a lot of words but I’m not able to scroll through them for some reason. I can see the first couple words but that’s it. It feels like theirs a bug. Also it’d be neat if we could sort them according to the time we favorited them.
  • An odd issue

    By chichonsalsa
    As someone else mentioned, there is an issue with the favorite words. It won’t let you scroll all the way down. You can also see about the first ten words that are on your favorite list. I purchased to remove the ads to see if maybe that was it, but unfortunately it’s still a problem. Please fix.
  • Great app but please fix your bugs

    By J-web-grill
    I use the paid version (the free ad laden version is unusable In my opinion) of this app often but the latest version has a few issues. Clicking on another word, while reading the word’s definition no longer works. Also, the favorites list only shows the first page of saved words. What’s the point of adding a word to your favorites if you can’t view them? All in all, this is a great app and I especially like the learners view.
  • Not professional

    By TheSubmit
    It was initially good, but I had to reset my phone and as soon as the phone was back I tried to keep using my app which I paid for upgraded/none advertising version and it wouldn’t let me. Long story short, although I paid money just to use this dictionary with a premium version, I couldn’t use it. They’re not professional.
  • New Update

    By Dan - E
    On one of the app updates you changed the way we see stressed and unstressed syllables when searching a word. Those indicators helped songwriters a lot. Please bring it back soon!
  • Decline in functionality

    By Phoenix__Down
    I’ve used this app for a long time by favoriting words and visiting my word bank for expansionary purposes. Lately I’m not able to scroll in my favorites list, which greatly reduces the utility I derive from this app.
  • Pretty good go-to dictionary

    By Shep02
    I use this app all the time to look words up. It’s a habit to ignore the ads at this point. I like all the articles that are on the first page, too. Like today’s “Is it ‘I wish I were’ or ‘I wish I was’?” I also like to favorite words that I’d like to remember later. The only problem is that I can’t see the whole list when I go to check the list. It won’t let me scroll and I can only delete the words that are on the screen. The app also occasionally crashes.
  • Scroll not working

    By Poofypoo
    I’ve always loved this app, but it’s infuriating that you can no longer scroll through your favorite words. I know I’m not alone with this issue as there’s plenty of other reviewer’s complaining about the same thing. It’s ridiculous that it hasn’t been fixed.
  • Stupid

    By Hellurs
    I restored my example sentences and there are no example sentences -_- i even tried and simple word like smile just to test it out and i got nothing and whats up with all these ads?!? I know you gotta make your money somehow but at least make it a dollar to remove it. It shouldnt cost more than a dime actually. But seriuosly though JUST LOOK AT THE REVIEWS and you guys will know what to fix....
  • Good App But Example Sentences Aren’t Working

    By S.E Iniatials
    I think the dictionary app is good to use if you have the add ons. But the problem is that the example sentences aren’t working. I payed real money in order to get this for my son so he can learn but the sentences aren’t working anymore! Please fix this feature. Literally all the words don’t have example sentences. It even said I purchased the example in the upgrade menu.
