  • Easily the best

    By Boograham52
    I think this app is the best dictionary app I’ve tried, and I’ve tried most of them. It’s easy to use and is very readable.
  • Overall a great app

    By A Hacker Using Tor
    Exemplary design, compendious definitions, and few ads. No bugs. Fairly Mediocre voice system.
  • Only a little clunky

    By musicman1347
    The dictionary is excellent, the whole app would be five stars if every part, including the quizzes, were smooth and didn’t bug out (even æsthetically)
  • Saves your words

    By *Pants*
    I love that it saves your history, useful if you want to build your vocab
  • Useful, fun but needs polishing

    By AvanWin1986
    I enjoy the word of the day as well as the word games. The word games however would be more fun if I could think about the question for a while longer than 10 seconds!
  • Could not live without it!!

    By Nordic Paul
    This is a beautiful app that helps me communicate in a rich, intelligent and compelling style. It allows me to use the richness of the English language in a fuller, more robust manner.
