  • Love it but...

    By Pleasetakeadvice
    I have been using this app for years! It helps me find alternative words to use in my academic papers and helps me learn new ones. However.... I hate the forced pop-up ads that keep appearing! I’m sorry but this is a dictionary app not a game or a social app but an academic app. I do not think it is appropriate to have ads in this sort of app.
  • No bold on accented syllable in update version?!

    By Riri Mrs
    It used to be my favorite application; the most helpful dictionary. Two weeks ago my iphone automatically installed the update version, and suddenly it becomes NOT so helpful anymore. The update version doesn’t identify the accented syllable with bold letters as the previous version, except for the word of the day.
  • Aweful app

    Right in the middle of a definition it goes to an advertisement you can’t click out of!
  • love the app but can’t scroll down on my favorites!

    The only problem I seem to have is that I cannot scroll down on my favorites. It also seems to not let me scroll down on my recent word searches as well.
  • Mixed review

    I like the basic app but regret buying the add on example sentences. The sentences are overly complex and not relatable to the average user.
  • Liberal definitions incorrect

    Your third definition for “fascist” is “a person who is dictatorial or has extreme right-wing views.” This is totally opposite of right-wing anything. Is Antifa writing for you now? I’m deleting this piece of crap from phone right now. Disgusting.
  • Not working properly

    I installed the upgraded (w/o ads) version on iPhone and am disappointed that my “Favorites” list displays only the first 12 words (listed alphabetically). The app does not allow one to scroll through the list; hence, the Favorites list is useless.
  • Premium Membership Withdrawn?

    By rbrancheau
    I have paid for the premium upgrade on BOTH iPad and iPhone (around a year and a half ago), but for some reason it will not restore the premium version on my iPhone? Otherwise this is a 4-5 star application. Please help.

    I purchased several additions/add ons with this app and now they are gone. What a rip off! I want my money back!!!!
  • Waste of time with misleading features

    This is usually my preferred dictionary/thesaurus app (and website), but just wasted several hours saving words to go back and look at later only to find that I can’t access most of them when choosing “see all” in the favorites section. They’re ordered alphabetically and thought I’d be able to scroll down to see the rest, but couldn’t. If there is a limit, the app should let people know they’ve reached it.
