Works great 💯

This is not the unabridged dictionary.

I wish it was! I would gladly pay for an app that contained the unabridged M-W. Instead, the unabridged is only available as a subscriber only website, which is very inconvenient.

Necessary companion

I use this app regularly while reading novels and while I study the Bible. Very useful!

Disappointed

I'm giving this three stars because it is a dictionary and works as intended. It loses stars for these reasons: 1. Ads. Seriously? Ads that stop me from finding the definition of a word. 2. SUBSCRIPTION BASED DICTIONARY. I looked up the definition of the word Potemkin and was told that I would need to subscribe because it's not in the collegiate level dictionary. What is wrong with you people? It's a dictionary for Christ's sake.

completely believable

listen i get capitalism is the water we swim in but if you tell me i suddenly cant know the definition of a word without a $5.99 subscription my only response will be blind rage.

Free and paid OK, just…

Any way you can add spelling suggestions? Or maybe it is something that can be activated in the settings? This way, if there’s no correct spelling, there are no suggestions or anything to help with locating the word.
