Great app. Should have on your phone
I have used this primarily for real estate & legal terms. Every word was available for a clear & precise description that I (as a layman) was able to understand.
I also enjoy reading the word of the day & playing the brain game.
I recommend this to anyone that has a need for a dictionary on their phone.
Thanks for developing such a great app.
I love this app for so many reasons. It's easy to use & has lots to offer. I'll pull it up to search for the spelling or meaning of a word and keep it open for an hour or more, having fun with the other stuff like history, words within a word & hangman. Keeps my brain stimulated. I highly recommend it! 😊👍
Worthwhile Mental Activity
Superb in every respect. Keeps an old gray-haired wrinkly like me mentally active - an important consideration.
Gives me an opportunity to be exposed to interesting matters and to be curious and look into things.
Scoring provides some feedback and sense of achievement.
I disapprove of New Dictionary employees who interfere with scores. Seems like some of them do and some of them don't. Seems very subjective. I suppose there must be a reason. Makes one wonder if there is a set of rules or standards to go by. Whatever. I'm going to keep doing my best to have fun and enjoy.
I already wrote a review on my iPhone -- now you want me to write a review on my iPad???
