By Mondane23

Love this app!

5
This app is one of the four that are permanently fixed on the bottom of the iPhone screen. Gives the full definition and history of words and the Word of the Day is awesome for expanding your vocabulary.

Must Have

5
Like most people, I have only a handful of apps I’ve actually paid for. . . This is one of them and I would gladly do it again. Love the way you can easily flip to the Thesaurus and then back to the dictionary. Word games are fun too! I use this all the time to improve my writing and wordsmithing-its a must have for anyone on email all day.

There are no words...

Downloaded last pm. Had to look up three words while reading a book be Gene Wolfe. Not in this dictionary, e.g. analeptic.

Versatile App; Good Workout

5
This is the only English dictionary app I bother with. It offers a variety of exercises and options (such as word of the day) which are useful to review, reinforce, and increase vocabulary “muscle.” Just for “funzies” I also bought a Word a Day calendar whose definitions are derived from Webster, and it’s a good supplement. I’m a big fan of writing and collect words and linguistic principles for fun. I’ve gathered some pretty word gems this way. This app goes into etymology briefly - just enough to whet your whistle. It’s the right mix of concise and in-depth for an app. Thanks for offering it, guys!

I love this app. A really good dictionary with the added feature of word pronunciation by speaker. You’ll love this app!

A daily reference!

5
As someone who always had a M-W dictionary by almost every chair, and someone dragged into the digital age (I’m 80), the app came to my attention recently as I became more familiar with my iPhone and its wonders. I installed it recently and LOVE it. One of my favorite features is the ability to hear the words pronounced. The app is easy to use and gives me the understanding I need. Gone are those thick books—well, I have one somewhere, just in case. In the meantime it enhances my reading and writing.

Pronunciation

5
It helps me a lot that not only I can find a word’s definition but also I can hear how it is pronounced.
By OneWordAtATime

Great source of information

5
Reading great novels with immediate access to the Merriam Webster app allows those with limited education to see more clearly and understand more deeply the thoughts of great writers.
