Sound button

3
The sound button never works. For a foreigner pronunciation is crucial. Update: I gave it 4/5 stars initially as the sound button didn't work. I received a response that it was because I had put my phone on silent mode. Okay, that's fine, now I have to put back my phone on a ringing mode to just hear the pronunciation of a word. I can live with that. But guess what? It worked for a while and now even with the ringer enabled the button still doesn't work.

Love it! But one thing..

4
Love this app and use it almost daily! The only thing is deterring me from rating a perfect 5 is that notifications are repeated and its a super turn off. Please fix?

Best app I have ever used for definitions

IPad inaccessible

2
The app is very user friendly on the iPhone. However, the screen cannot be turned for iPad use and thus cannot be typed on from a keyboard. This becomes increasingly annoying when working on papers as I have to go back and forth between turning the screen to accommodate for the single use iPhone capability. Please make this an iPad app, too :)

I dislike this app

Doesn’t work for me.

Crashes every time I follow a notification

1
The app has a daily “word of the day” notification. When I click the notification, the app opens and immediately crashes. Every time. Not sure how long it’s been going on, but it happens every time now. I tried to report the problem. From the app you can click a link which bounces you out to a web browser and takes you through several different pages where you just have to keep clicking “contact support.” You finally get to a page with a form to submit your problem. You have to fill out a captcha. I don’t know why a robot would submit a bug report to dictionary.com, but you have to prove you’re a human nonetheless. And then I clicked the submit button and a little progress icon just spins and spins and spins. It’s still spinning, but the captcha verification has expired.

No sound but great otherwise

I love the app and the dictionary, what I don’t like and need is the sound from the enunciations! Please get my sound to work. Every time I get a new phone I have to go through this all over again- no sound! H E L P !!!!!’
