  • Great Help

    By RN BTN
    I use the dictionary for sending messages and checking the definitions of words in the current book I am reading. I appreciate the dictionary being able to assume what word I might want based on my spelling.

    I PURCHASED!! This app. So why is there ANY ads. Especially ads that take over the whole screen and you can’t X out.

  • Why the hell I see ads even when I had upgaded

    By 111aaacdfff
    The app itself is good and has worked fine until recently. I purchased the upgraded version in Nov 2017 and just now suddenly realized I just have a basic account, where I not only have to bear with annoying adds, I also don’t get to use additional features. If this is not solved, I will report it to Apple Play as I purchased it through them
  • Notice: Left wing propaganda / Dictionary

    By roarra
    If you would like left-wing propaganda subtly fed to you while you look up the meaning of words, this is the app for you. Is NOTHING safe from politics these days?

    I deleted it after using it for years. Looking something on iPad you see lots of ads but can’t find the dang meaning of the word. Good app gone BAD. Bye bye
