What's New in Version 6.0.1
Thanks for all the feedback, and don’t fret, we haven’t removed Thesaurus.
TIP: Thesaurus is now called Synonyms – find it at the bottom of your search results.
Also, in this update:
• Fixed: critical bugs
• Added support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens
I love this app. & can't think of anything that I would want to change. I use it quite frequently to research a word & to check the word of the day. My belief is that you never stop learning, and that's a good thing! To be specific about what this app. offers, is as follows:
•constantly updates formatting-& the updates are always a very welcome surprise
•sends a "word of the day" that includes everything, including all about the origin of said word
•is in an easy to understand format & wording (otherwise known as layman' terms)
•each word of the day includes factoids, word games, further history...etc.
•offers related upgrades, the one that I really like is the very compatible Thesaurus (there are many to choose from)
•this app. makes learning fun
•I could go on & on...
On a personal note, having an extensive vocabulary has always been one of my passions, but even if you consider yourself not very interested-my opinion is that this app. may change your mind. 🌱
Really like this app. But having trouble since updating to iOS 9.0.2.
Tried to update Dictionary but process freezes about 70% through. Tried several times with same result.
Decided to remove the app and reload it. Delete process now frozen and the word "waiting" appears under the space where the app icon used to appear. The delete "x" no longer appears next to the missing icon which has been replaced by a grey square.
Repeated attempts to reload the app not successful.
Any helpful tips out there?
This app is easy to use and offers an instant thesaurus, too. Check the definition and spelling in the dictionary, then with one touch you can see the synonyms - and antonyms. The word of the day feature is a nice addition to develop your vocabulary. All free!
