Upgrade is awful

1
My dictionary app looks different today. It looks downgraded and very frustrating to read broken up words in the thesaurus. Who does this, who is the genius that changes something for the worse and there is a second and third person saying, ' yeah that's great, so much better, let's do it'! Stooges! Look that up!

New Layout is for Kids

3
What happened to the professional layout you’ve had for years now! As of the last update it looks like the site is geared towards kids with color blocking & the most bizarre layout. This would be great if I were 10 yrs old! I fact, this is a wonderful model for a kids version of your dictionary, just not for me thanks! Would you please consider returning to the more mature professional layout? I Appreciate All You Do • Thank You for Hearing Me Out

Well, I can't look up words in meetings now. You had decent app. You're a dictionary. Be a dictionary. It doesn't require flair. Stoping repainting your look.

Better Before the Update

1
This app was better before the update. First of all, it can be extremely slow and sometimes won’t even load at all. When I search for synonyms and scroll, it becomes extremely glitchy and eventually kicks me out. I used to love this app, but now these glitches are making it a bit aggravating to use.

Watch icon has disappeared

I’d previously been using the dictionary app on my iPhone and when I bought the Apple Watch it automatically updated to the watch. Recently the watch icon has disappeared and I can’t seem to get it back. What’ the story with that?

Video ads

Had this app for probably 5-10 years. I’m fine with banner ads on this app but when you make me watch a 15-30 second video to read the definition of a word... I deleted the app.

Aw, man

This was a five star app a week ago. I use it constantly when I’m writing. The new ads are really bothersome, though. They interrupt my flow. I would gladly pay a few bucks for an ad-free version. I even like the new layout, it’s very clean, but the ads are making me strongly consider finding a different dictionary/thesaurus app. 😕

Sound doesn’t work

I loved this app, but since the last update the option to hear the pronunciation it’s not working any more. Please check it , that really makes a complement to this app.

Best dictionary app but don’t enjoy now being nickel and dime’d over buying each individual dictionary when they were previously offered. I should feel thankful it’s not another app on the ‘subscription’ train, however.
