A huge thanks!
I do feel sorry for not having the ability to give as much appreciation and attention to this app as I would like. I look forward to using Dictionary everyday and find myself rather down when I don’t have internet access. Yes, it advertises offline availability, though unfortunately, I’ve never been able to utilize it for some reason it just won’t load for me. Aside from that, When I am able to use Dictionary, I’m on it sometimes for hours at a time, or I have it open in my recently used apps line up to be referenced, toggling back and forth when I need it. So again, many thanks to it’s developers.
Use it most every day. Love learning about people, events, new words. I enjoy the Match and Mismatch games.
There is one small thing that I wish they would correct. When checking answers or reading an article, when you tap the return icon it takes you all the way back to the top of their beginning page and not where you were reading. You end up having to scroll down to where you were. Any chance of fixing that? Otherwise, an excellent ap and worthy to have. Amazing app.
A Stumble Can Bad, Not If You Find Gold
I happen to be looking around for dictionaries that had everything I needed to do my writing. I was using the the top one that came up in a google search, and I’ve been using it for years but never satisfied because I had to always do more searches because it didn’t have a thesaurus and idioms etc. Well today was my lucky day. While searching I found this free dictionary and I LOVE IT! I can’t wait to utilise all the things it has to offer, and I will use them all! Thanks so much!
