Ratings and Reviews

Limited Words, limited descriptions

Mehrdad84h

The free version was a misleading one with words that have the longest description and collocation lists! I thought, I would get the same for all the words, but words are really limited with really short descriptions for each of them! And it as expensive as the advanced version! I wish I could at least change it with that!

HORRIBLE

I need this for a school thing but how can I do anything when I have to pay?! For looking up a WORD?! USELESS!! THIS THING DOESNT EVEN DESERVE 1 STAR
