  • The one reason why 3 instead of 5 stars...

    By herroimseto
    There’s no multi window support. Dealbreaker for me.
  • Improved

    By Dale6586843678
    This app has made it much easier to find words and definitions when my spelling abilities are lacking. I often look for words without knowing the correct spelling and in the past have had to give up on. It is much easier and quicker now to look for variations of possible ways to spell words that I am seeking the definitions to. I end up using this app more frequently now.
  • Why change it

    By whether I like it
    The correct pronunciation of every word is very important when an individual is trying to expand their vocabulary, small variations sometimes completely change the way a word is pronounced, and interpreted. I was looking for a simple dictionary with pronunciation when I downloaded this app, sometimes more isn’t better, and better isn’t more, most of the time things are just fine the way they are, this app was just that.
  • App billing for free download

    By Gkiddos
    I’m really upset about why I have to confirm billing if I’m downloading a free app. It doesn’t make any sense. It does it on an alternate basis and my kids my husband and I are really getting fed up with it.
  • Dumb games pop-up?

    By Coffeeklatch16
    Here's a beautiful app, sophisticated and useful, and up pops a ridiculous pink horses game offer covering the screen. Really? I've used your app for a long, long time. Why did you resort to cheap tactics like that to support your app? SO out of character (as if that needs to be said). Not pleased. If necessary, I may be shopping for a new app.
  • 5 Stars

    By Kentuckyborn
    I use this app at least 5-10 times a day. It is priceless.
  • Racists at dictionary.com

    By WhereDidCommonSenseGo
    Today this company claimed something obama said many times himself is racist only when a Republican says it. Tons of videos show obama saying the same thing and dictionary.com never tweeted out how racist that was but when DeSantis says it it’s now racist - no, that makes you the racists dictionary.com.
  • Confusing

    By Garfield.io
    When I searched empathize because I did not know what it meant. Then I went to empathy because I didn’t know what it meant(side note and sentence did not help) and it gave me very confusing words, I am pretty sure that the words used to define empathy were even harder to understand than empathy. I AM JUST A PRE-TEEN SO DON’T EXPECT ME TO KNOW ALL OF THESE CRAZY WORDS. SIMPLIFY THEM, IT IS NOT THAT HARD!!! I AM LOOKING FOR THE DEFINITION TO LEARN, NOT FOR HOMEWORK!!!
  • 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.
