  • Paid extra for no pop ups and they’re back. Wasn’t able to contact them. Too many pop ups

    By BonniePerfect
    Used to be a great app now constant annoying pop ups
  • No Good!

    By PrincessKyB
    This app used to be great! It’s subpar at best now! The pronunciation function stopped working months ago. So annoying! I’m deleting this app, as of today!
  • Extremely obvious bias

    By skyler6453
    This diectionary has been my go to for years and I have enjoyed the word of the day when I get bored now and then, but the blatent progressive/liberal bias that is seen is unrelenting. Any article, as well as many definitions, have an obvious tilt if not an outright allegiance to liberal ideology.
  • Where’s the volume??

    By Callaloo Golden Corral
    I used to be able to click the icon to play the audio for a word I was unsure of the pronunciation. Now that button doesn’t work. It’s been months!!!! Fix it!!! 😡
  • Where is the content I paid for?😡

    By Deeva913
    I downloaded this app over a year ago and purchased the maximum upgrade for $9.99. Well I just attempted to look up a medical term, and low and behold, I’m back to the basic edition. There was no indication when I bought the upgrade that it was only for a limited time. Had that ‘disclaimer’ been made upfront I would have NEVER wasted my money. And of course there’s no way to contact anyone about this. Until this issue gets resolved DO NOT USE THIS APP😡😡😡😡
  • Offline definitions paywalled

    By sunsucker
    The offline definitions are now locked behind a paywall.
  • Sound button

    By PoliGP777
    The sound button never works. For a foreigner pronounciation is crucial.
  • Bait and switch

    By qwyegsvhnbsbdjbd
    I bought this app, paid money for a premium version. One day it starts displaying adds. Full screen and partial screen adds. Why did I pat money to upgrade? This is unacceptable.
  • App crashes and has bugs

    By PrincessBelle91
    Purchased the app to get rid of ads. But the app frequently crashes on me. If you click on a word within the definition to take you to another word, it won’t take you there. I have to close the app and reopen it because it won’t respond to anything. Also there needs to be a way to scroll through your favorites(and definitions of those words) instead of having to go back to the main page and click on favorites every time you want to look at another favorite word. I’ve started using dictionary on safari because it’s easier to deal with than the app.
  • Hear ye!!!The pronunciations button is NOT WORKING!!!

    By janenb
    For some reason the Dictionary app has stopped pronouncing the words! My volume key IS all the way up, and it has done absolutely nothing. I have had this app for years now, and all of a sudden it will not pronounce any of the words! Please, please, please fix this problem!
