A Necessity for So-So Spellers

5
Thank goodness for this app! I realize that spellcheck is already employed on my iPhone, but this app is a terrific backup. Although an avid reader, I’m just one of those folks who was never a natural speller. This is also an amazingly convenient tool to have when trying to decide on the use of a particular word, as well as being able to increase my vocabulary by such easy look-ups. Thank you for your help.

A love of words

4
The dictionary has always been one of my favorite books to read. In this app the definitions are sometimes a bit incomplete and the etymology sparse but thoroughly appreciated when offered. Overall a very useful tool, thank you.

Habit

5
My father told me long before to learn at least one new word each day. But I just didn’t do it. I should have learned thousand words had I listened to him. Then I came across this app and I started January 1st this year and it has become a habit for me already to check the word for the day. This app is very handy, accessible, practical and valuable.

Amazing App

5
Love the pronunciation feature. English is my second language-I find myself going back time and again going back to the app to check the pronunciation of words. The test feature are is fun and challenging.

Great games

5
Of course the dictionary is first rate, but the addition of word games makes this a go-to app whenever you have 10 minutes to spare. Note that these games are far more challenging than the ones on line.

Perfect for me!!

5
The best dictionary and thesaurus!! Love to spell and learn the meaning of words. This is just an app away and always close Thanks for the ability to use it. Hope you are paid enough. Good day and God bless!!!

Location for Entering The Word

5
Hope this can be simplified by just enabling the word being looked for to be entered just at the first place instead of jumping to another location, which is not necessary and wasting the users' time.
