    it has word games, definitions etc. what more can I ask for??
  • Great Dictionary

    By Q. Publius
    I like to look up a word if I don’t know it, or want to refresh my memory on different meanings or nuances. Also I like to look up the roots of words (etymology). This is a great app which makes it easy to look up words when a hard copy dictionary isn’t handy. I took off one star because sometimes a word’s origin isn’t given. A good feature is, if you’re connected to WiFi or a cell tower signal, you can press a symbol to get the word pronounced. I don’t need this feature often, but when I do it’s invaluable.
  • More examples

    By Wellness Chick
    I love that it can be used offline, and there are a multitude of words and variations of the words. But more examples, using the words in a sentence, would be very helpful.
  • Very convenient

    By KyleCYo
    It’s great having a ‘word of the day’ to learn & looking up definitions from the easily accessible app rather then pulling the internet up for a word-search!

  • Webster Dictionary

    By Paigespage
    I love this app and use it all the time! I use it for meaning of words, as well as learning how to spell words. Also I enjoy learning of their origin and how long they have been used. Very nice app. It’s made me look good in writings where I’ve used a word correctly and spelled it right as well.
  • Keeps Freezing

    By bradimckae
    This app freezes after I look up one word. I have to exit out of it if I want to look up more than one word. So annoying!
  • Dictionary

    By Brett Barto
    I use this app constantly to either check my usage of a word, or to find the best word to use in a statement. I also love the word games it comes with. A person should never be to old to learn.
