Ratings and Reviews
A wonderful Resource
I love this app, I use it consistently over my other dictionary/Thesaurus Apps and will actually use it over the Oxford dictionary PC program I have. It is easy to find the information that I need. I came across the free dictionary when I searched google for a legal term. Highly recommend I have never had a problem with this app or their website, and it has improved my learning drastically. I was so overjoyed with this app I bought the Pro Version within 24 hours and never looked back
If it exists you'll find the definition here
I love this app. Sometimes I come across a really obscure word and my curiosity demands I find out the meaning. It's always there!
Other times my kids ask me for the meaning of a word I know well, but since it's hard to come up with a concise one I consult the app and it explains it far better than I ever could. Five well-deserved stars!
Feedback - Free Dictionary
Words fail me to describe or to define this World Class application. It is fortunate therefore that I have free access to use the application to fill the void.
There are so many facets to this application that the best feedback I can give is to urge people to download it and discover as millions already have that this is not just a dictionary.
So download, be educated and have fun.
