    By Blue Eyes 1950
    I’ve never been a very good at spelling and this Webster’s Dictionary app has really helped me! I love it!
  • Good Basic Tool

    By M&M LEACH
    Don't expect this FREE app to have all the words that a paper dictionary has. If you want a thorough dictionary, you're going to have to have to pay for it silly ;) ~ GOOD TO CHECK VOCABULARY & SPELLING OR TO EXPLORE NEW WORDS YOU PICK UP ALONG THE WAY ~
  • Very useful tool

    By storms. 21
    Perfect app, I have absolutely no complaints. It’s features are user-friendly and accessible, and it’s super convenient to open the app in a snap if I need to find synonyms or a definition to a certain word. It’s been great for my English work as well as my writing. The ads also are not a problem as they aren’t distracting and there are minimal pop-ups. Excellent app, one of the best dictionary tools for mobile!

    By Lowlife1958
    With a few taps someone can find a definition.But no,most people just regurgitate a colloquial and build on falsehoods.A positive review from a negative reviewer.Thanks for being here.
