It’s great for all the combos you find in Scrabble, Boggle and other word games. However, in the last month the hyperlink to the more obscure words stopped working (website not found). Needs to be fixed. Also, when it did work, their site seemed infected with the occasional redirect to pirate sites. Perhaps this is related to that.
The latest Scrabble Dictionary book edition is #6. This app is #5, so it is not current. Some words in the Scrabble Dictionary book are not found in the app.
Fast and accurate + offline and it screws with Preston
This dictionary has the words but is horrible at providing the meaning. For example, for kicks, I typed the word “pet”. All I found was that this is a verb, and I meant “to caress with the hand”. So is “pet” not an animal kept as a companion? I abhor this dictionary. What a rip-off!!!
Besides winning at Scrabble, I would like to improve my vocabulary. However, words are often defined by the same word you are asking about. This is particularly true when the word is a variation on another word and the original definition is never given. This is frustrating. Other times, definitions are simplistic and inane. Overall, I wish the “official” scrabble dictionary was a bit more comprehensive/sophisticated. I cannot load an updated Scrabble app on my iPad mini. I have three of them in n right now. The one I had lost the “best word” Character. I deleted that after four years and cannot reload it. No game has current word list. No viable help from EA. I’m sick about this software!
I thought this was a whole dictionary of scrabble words that I could look at and study but it’s more of a cheat. Wasted money.
This is a nice app but definitely needs to be updated for larger screen iPhones. App content looks unusually large like scaled up iPhone apps on an iPad.
This is the dictionary I use when I want to see if a word that has been played is indeed a word. I simply type it into the lookup bar and it tells me immediately if it’s a word or not. If it is, I can then easily go to it’s definition. Now that Merrimack Webster has put out a sixth edition I had to purchase the Kindle version. And it’s awful. It takes way too long to find a word. Please please please update this app soon. I paid $10 for the Kindle dictionary. I’d gladly pay you for the app which is so much more suited to my needs.
Cannot use it with the bad display. Very uncomfortable. Deleted it already and I don’t know why I cannot have my refund. It’s waste of money, don’t recommend it.
Kleenex is good in TWL but not here
