  • Really???

    By Heyitsjeremy!
    I’ve bought the downloadable version of the app, but it’s been saying that there’s an error downloading it over and over again. I tried killing the app, waiting for a while, but the error window keeps on popping up! Please fix!
  • Great app

    By Getyuio
    Love the app but review process is ridiculous. This is my third and final attempt to write a review. I hit send and it deletes it or the nick name is taken and the entire review is deleted. New review : HEADS UP - if you have iPhone 7XR the sound is disabled for the Pronunciation feature if you turn off the ringer on the phone. This was not an issue on older iPhone models. I freaked out when I could not hear the pronunciation. I deleted the app , reloaded etc. and still no sound. Finally I thought to try turning ringer on and sound was restored to the app.
  • False Advertising

    By Unlooon
    The description should have been more elaborate than being vague and mentioned that Offline words are only accessible when you pay 2.99, otherwise we would only be able to use this dictionary whilst online. An Offline feature with ads would have been much more feasible. Thanks for nothing.
  • No Sound

    By Gittsha
    There is no sound for the past month when I touch the button to pronounce the words. Can you check it out please? Thank you. There is no audio. Help!
  • Server errors when trying to download offline dictionary

    By %@-#$+=&*/;():,'l.
    I sent an email about this with no response. Too bad, the previous version presented no such problem.
  • Don’t pay for any extras

    By alismcg
    My acct has been charged but I was not allowed to download the offline database. I dumped the app to download again and there’s no Restore Purchase button; just a sign in to buy again. Support has not responded to my request either. CAUTION
  • Prononciation stopped working a while ago

    By Mirocal
    I thought it’s an online availability issue, but this is persistent. I have the paid app and uninstalling/reinstalling didn’t help.
  • Terrible ad placement

    By maxreichelt
    App added whole page video ads with timers, negating any time saves by using the app instead of google.
  • I hate to do this....

    By nickname1840264849
    Alright....I do NOT write reviews. But this time.....I feel like someone needs to read this. This app could be the best dictionary app on the inter-webs. I use it every day, and I just feel like the definitions and overall information I get about the words I look up are fantastic. But no matter how good the content is, my experience with the app is absolutely ruined by the many bugs and general issues I experience while using it. How many times can it possibly crash? Why when I select a word based on auto-fill suggestions does the definition refuse to load? Such potential, such a disappointment in so many ways. Fix a tiny handful of things and this is the best dictionary app there is, by far.
  • Is this a Democratic Party editorial page or dictionary??

    By irritated and leaving the app
    The editorials are completely overkill and biased. Why is Dictionary trying to influence opinions on the border wall. It’s supposed to be a dictionary not MSNBC.
