I Love This App!
"Still Stand Firm On My Love For For The FARLEX APP!)
This App I Assure You That You Will Find it & Comprehend it!
It Keeps You Current, Informed! This App Is Interactive It Can Challenges Your Vocabulary As Well Word Structure If I Choose, I Find This Extremely Helpful & Important To Day To My Day Life As I Know Academically I Really Do Have An Appreciation That The So Many Word's Are Meaningless, Saying A Word So Vag It Causes The Gift Of Analogy To Communicate Turns From A Gift To A
When The Only Goal Was To Converse Be Unity
"THE ONE WORD"
That Thousand Word's I Have Found Will Only Cause Mis- Understanding, Confusion, Frustration Loosing Focus On The Subject at Hand
Words I Fine If Used Incorrectly Has Cause More Damage To Humanity From Mis-Interpretation From Either Delivery, The Recipient Or Ignorance!
"IF YOU DON'T
KNOW L👀K IT UP!"
FREE DICTIONARY (MY FARLEX)
MY FAVE RESOURCE!!! GREAT APP!!!
I've used this dictionary app for almost 6 years now & I still love it! I'd tried others, but deleted them all after finding this one. The word games are fun & challenging. I often save the Word of the Day on my personal word list, by bookmarking it. You can hear words, see synonyms & antonyms, history, examples of usage & even helps in spelling. This app offers daily articles of interest with various links for more info. It allows easy access to a thesaurus or encyclopedia. An AMAZING app! All in the FREE version! Gotta love it!! :)
I love using this app while listening to audiobooks, watching movies and tv, and reading books. I rarely cannot find the meanings to unfamiliar words and/or phrases.
I do not love the loud ads that come on when I open the app sometimes. I cannot control the volume that disturbs others near me (since I have to have the volume on for other reasons). Can anything be done? This did not used to happen.
Keep helping us 😊
