Customer Reviews

Extraordinary App!

The Free Dictionary is an app with true style!. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it's well thought out and very user friendly. The developers truly put some thought into this one! It's truly not just a dictionary. The quotes, articles, word games, even horoscope, all make it fun!. If you are like me, you know you need help in spelling and your vocabulary but you just can't seem to take the time or want to make the effort. This app will change all of that! I truly use it everyday!. And the articles, games, etc those too I use everyday. I have had both the free and the Pro versions. I travel a lot so am often without internet or unable to communicate in a foreign language. The Pro app takes care of that!. Thank you Developers for an amazing app!. There is a good reason this app has mainly five stars!. You will not be sorry with this amazing app!

Great breadth

Your dictionary has both great breadth and depth. It includes words other dictionaries (nameless because they, too, are trying) do not list. Some of these words might be considered too new, or too casual, for others to list. Nonetheless, in my view, and apparently in yours, they deserve a legitimate place in the lexicon, for many persons, places, and qualities are not quite the thing and are most accurately described, not by drawing-room palaver, but by backstairs phrases that border on the louche.
As for depth, your dictionary offers more examples of usage, and, for that matter, near usage, (without additional cost) than any of the other dictionaries I routinely use.
Finally, your quizzes and historical tidbits are great fun, especially on rainy holidays as well as, occasionally, on those times when I should be hard at work attending to business.

Best dictionary ever. But it's not just the dictionary....

I love the dictionary so much because there's so many definitions from different dictionaries. There's also a stellar homepage with Quotes of the Day (always really good & from reputable people), The Word of the Day (which is normally a word that can actually be used in an essay or real life), Article of the Day (always interesting and pertinent information to today's world), etc. You can even get notifications for the Word of the Day or Quote of the Day or whatever. What I don't like is that you can't get notifications for both the Quote of the Day and the Word of the Day, for example. That is to say, you can only get notifications for one item.
