Ratings and Reviews
Love the app, hate the ads
Great app. But fix the ads. I don’t mind in-app ads, although they are annoying. But suddenly getting redirected to the App Store whilst checking a definition is frustrating AF. Makes it unusable.
No ads: hands down 5 stars.
In-app ads: 4 stars, because still one of the best free dictionary apps.
The best dictionary.
I’ve been using Merriam Webster for about 5 years, and I’ve got to say that this is by far the best dictionary that I’ve used.
