  • The definition of “meh”

    1
    By Torsten Barring
    This is nothing more than a decent basic dictionary, with limited definitions, crappy etymologies, and generally student-level presentation — if you’re looking for something for professionals, keep looking. A far cry from the much better Unabridged Webster’s app that this company used to sell — for $80! — and then decided to stop updating — making that $80 down the drain. This totally average dictionary is more proof that Merriam Webster is all about mediocrity now.
  • I use daily to help me remember or verify

    The app allows you to save favorites and access at the top left of the screen very easily. Easy to see and hear the words you most frequently use. Also it keeps the last ten words you have looked up across the top of the app. I am very satisfied with the app, so much easier than getting out the big heavy Dictionary, plus you can hear the word to verify pronunciation.
  • Still buggy as mad

    I like the dictionary but the app is too buggy. The search box is flashing in sliding down. I will come back when it is usable.
  • Directions to the thesaurus tab would help

    Since the only visible Thesaurus tab on the Home Screen, at the bottom of the screen, disappears as soon as you scroll down even a fraction of an inch, and it only appears at the top if you tap in the Search bar, instructions or a pervasive/fixed Thesaurus tab would help. Thanks!

    The Merriam-Webster app is one of my best friends. As a writer and editor, I’m constantly looking up words. I love the fact that this app gives you so much more than definitions! If you need to write—anything—don’t be caught without Merriam-Webster.
  • Great for homework
