Disappointed- Don't Download
I've had this app for a very long time and used to use it very frequently. It went through an update that includes a new design and name, and since then, it's been awful.
Every time I open it, a message pops up saying "Purchase: In-App Purchases are not allowed." I do have my settings so that I can't purchase anything in apps, but my issue is that this prompt pops up every time for no reason. And if there is a reason, that would mean the app is asking me to buy something every time I open it (but because I've disabled that function, I'm not seeing the prompt to purchase something). It's so annoying and unnecessary. The app used to be great before all the update and changes. Very frustrating. I'm deleting the app and looking for another dictionary. Bye Wordset.
Update ruined the app.
I've had this app for probably 6 or 7 years. It was great, the icon looked professional and nice; the icon actually said Dictionary, and the thesaurus portion was better. They have tried to revamp this to make it more appealing to a younger demographic that wants to look up words in the urban dictionary accompanied by bright, annoying colors. "Don't try to fix something if it isn't broken." - the old app was fine as it was.
This used to be a great app, but since the update there are less definitions and we are only given one synonym when we used to get a whole list. I was doing research on religions and this app didn't have the definition for Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Bible, Torah, or Koran. If they went back to the old format I'd be happy to use this app but as of now I think it's time to get a new dictionary. Like another reviewer said, don't fix what isn't broken.
