Voice dictation

3
The app is fine. It’s easy to use but they completely made a huge poo-poo in the last update. No one is going to favorite a dictionary definition. The voice dictation is absolute junk. Completely destroy it and start from scratch and make it useful. It is completely trash. Make the voice dictation better. Why would you keep stacking up all your searches and then when you want to go back have to press the back arrow like 25 times to get rid of all of them. The latest update almost ruined the app. I used it all the time before but this update did some major damage to the functionality. The voice dictation has always been a huge problem though. Make it better!

Didn’t get what I paid for

3
I paid for the offline dictionary, but when i went to look for the definition of something offline, no results showed up. I had to turn on data to even see anything. It’s a good dictionary otherwise, but I shouldn’t be paying for nothing.

Gross Redesign

3
I love dictionary.com, but this redesign is so hideous and harsh on the eyes. I don’t know who was paid to do the redesign, but ya’ll need your money back. Deleted until a better design comes out.

Pretty Crap

2
Slow, filled with ads, crashes. Purchased premium on the iPad only to discover that the iPad and iPhone apps are separate and I would need to make another purchase if I wanted no ads on my phone. Deleted.

New app icon is terrible

Change it back or improve it.

Hideous App Update

3
I loved this app, but the latest update is so visually offensive. Bright primary royal blue, chunky looking interface, and the new logo is a miss for me. Really disappointed in the color choice, makes my eyes hurt. I believe this color is also bad for those who get migraines or have visual sensitivities.

Double Word of the day Notifications

3
I’m still getting double word of the day notifications. I was hoping an update would fix it by now but it’s been happening since for a while now.

New Logo Design

3
Please give us the option to change back to the old logo or have a new logo design altogether. This new one is not great

What happened to your data?

2
The new look is nice and all, but the quality of the dictionary data has declined dramatically. Can you please go back to your old data source? It was much better than this newer version.

Awful!

1
This app is amazingly dumb. Today, for example, I sought the definition of “totemic” on the app. The first definitions, it tells, are nouns. But, I wonder if I am getting the definition not for totemic, but for the word totem, which would be a noun. What would be their putative purpose for deliberately misrepresenting something? I recall several years ago accessing a Fox Sports site on the internet, and I was disgusted that they did not tell (in the column unambiguously labeled “TV”) what station the football game was being broadcast on if it was not on Fox. (Fox since changed this absurd practice.) As another example of the failure of this app to give useful definitions: I typed in “uneducated”, knowing that researchers and demographers, etc. use this precise term to mean “a person who has a high school education or less than a high school education. This understanding of the word is KNOWN, but dictionary.com is apparently oblivious. It is a very bad app!!
