Brilliant app no excuses for not understanding vocabulary now!


In my opinion this a brilliant app, as much as I love learning I find a book as big as a dictionary quite cumbersome, so this app is perfect for me, it’s so easy to use. The pronunciation facility where the word is spoken upon request is helpful to me and I could imagine it being really helpful for children or someone who’s first language is not English. Another great feature is being able to click on words that are in the definition should you need to look them up too, it then goes straight to that word. Being able to speak the word and it then look it up is very useful if you’re not sure of the spelling.
Very satisfied, thank you!

Great dictionary, shame about the app


The dictionary’s great, most used app on my phone without a doubt. Some issues with the app though, foremost among those the fact that it will relentlessly bug you to leave a review, even if you’ve left one already. Also the camera button (?!) is poorly positioned and I keep pressing it by mistake. Whole thing just feels over-embellished, when a simpler, cleaner interface would be much more welcome.

A useful app, but not 100% complete - some words not recognised or entered, which can be frustrating when trying to do codewords and it doesn't/can't 'find' the word you're looking for! Other than that it's a useful tool for other games such as word ladder, scrabble/upwords/boggle.
