  • Aweful app

    By daytona2.0
    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!

    By DeVarion177
    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

    By Jcoz11
    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

    By Shrubby1
    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

    By Plmtfxy
    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  • Premium Membership Withdrawn?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.
  • Disappointed

    By Marthal Jackson
    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

    By aks0904
    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.
  • Not good

    By RealistRey
    I am using an iPhone and I have studied already some words, and I save it to”favorite”. But when you go to “favorite” you cannot scroll the words up or down. I am disappointed with this app.
  • Scrolling of “favorites “ stopped working

    By stock611
    All of the sudden I can’t scroll through my favorite word list. Only on this app and only in the “favorites”. Other than that, love it!
