Great dictionary .

Love the quizzes

Great way to pass the time rather than social medicating, and I like being able to save favorite words. The pronunciation has come from n very handy too. The thesaurus has been expanded in recent editions.

App won’t stop freezing after I try to sign in to my account. Seems to work fine on iPad.

Used to be great

Y’all took a great app and ruined it. I don’t appreciate paying for a great app and then having its destruction forced on me. Unacceptable. 👎🏻

Great

I am 74 and I like to look up words I haven’t seen before. The quizzes are awesome in helping me remember what words mean. The fact that you able to retake the same tests over & over help my memory. Only problem I see (but like), is that I then find other words I want to look up. Awesome app.

The dictionary

Hello

It is good, with one reservation—

Opens quickly, and authoritative definitions. But I use a dictionary for just one purpose on my iPad: to find the meaning of a word I just read on my tablet. Why can't I copy the word, open the dictionary and be presented with a ready to paste into search box? And the widget? Why is it only the "new" word of the day? This is a great dictionary that would rather rest in that wooden stand in the corner of the dining room of the home I grew up in. That is not my life today. Can I have a dictionary that works with me, rather than than against me? Or worse, stubbornly refuse to leave the wooden stand that now occupies space in the basement?
