Excellent Resource

I find the app indispensable in checking spelling, proper use of words, expansion of vocabulary and as a bit of a thesaurus at times! So glad to have access to it!

Unignorable ads

1
Love the app, but the ads can’t be closed after coming up unless you completely close the app I’ve discovered. And they pop up after looking up 1 word. Downloading dictionary.com as a result

Nothing but ads

1
The first word I looked up resulted in an advertisement. I suppose most apps are nothing but ads anymore.

Google works better

This app is better than google for the word of the day. It claims to be a dictionary but many words are not included. Google works better

Great app, but expensive to purchase

4
2.99 a year seems expensive for a dictionary. I wish you could do a one time purchase. I love this app though!
