Ratings and Reviews
Great resource; needs one minor fix
I use this app a lot, and enjoy its speed, word filtering as I type in new words, and breadth of words covered. When I reopen the app it defaults to my last word searched, which is a good reminder/reinforcement tool. But here's my suggested fix: From that point, I should be able to press the search button and my old word goes away. The way it is now I press the search button AND THEN have to delete the last search word from the search box. Two clicks, one completely unnecessary. Can't figure why the developer doesn't just clear out the box for me and give me a fresh start - what possible (frequent) reason would I want that last word filled in that box?!
Love it. On my home screen. No BS dictionary.
My only complaint is you can't export your bookmarked words or sync them across devices.
Smarty in training
I like that I can save words to look at periodically. It’s a great tool for increasing your vocabulary. It works fast too.
