  • Woke

    By Skydoglives
    Getting myself an old hard cover dictionary that cannot change definitions as the leftist breeze blows.
  • Notification

    By Mt robb
    Why am i no longer getting notification for word of the day
  • Word punctuation

    By Lakesdge
    What happened to the word spell pronunciation. I wasn’t able to hear what the word sounds like.
  • Good while it lasted

    By Fancyboy6
    I had the paid version. Used it regularly for years until a pop up message about tracking would not let me do anything. Developer contacted me promptly and corrected problem.
  • Finding words

    By cynlovcoco
    Great to have a dictionary in the palm of my hand!
  • Your screen is frozen

    By George4hhi
    Can’t use your screen is frozen and doesn’t work
  • Ad tracking

    By ccih
    Revised: the developer explained that what I described was a bug that had already been corrected in a new update. There is now an option to opt-out in settings. Thanks for being responsive. Not happy at all about the ad tracking which, because of a pop up window today that blocks access unless you “agree,” you can’t refuse or turn off. I wouldn’t have the right to complain if I was using the free version, but I paid for ad-free.
  • Tracking?? To the trash it goes.

    By jgeraldini
    Already deleted the app. Useless without tracking, which isn’t even an option. Bad decision. You’ll have a lot of users doing the same.
  • Highly regarded!

    By Inalopi

  • Excellent app
