Customer Reviews

Very good!

I love how I don't need internet access for the dictionary and also the word of the day function. It's helpful to be able to save words as favorites as well. My only complaint is the synonyms. There are very few or none on some words, and most do not have antonyms. None have near synonyms or near antonyms, which would be useful for writers like me. Other than that, very helpful. Love the voice action for spelling purposes. However, a spell check type of recognition on a word search would be helpful.


This app is just as useful as a normal dictionary (even more because it isn't heavy). Does not require Wi-Fi, which is really good, and is handy whenever I need it.
I'm currently writing a story, and now I don't have to open multiple tabs on the Internet to look up a word. I can stay on my book with a dictionary in my pocket!
Love this app! Very useful. 📔

Best Dictionary App :)

I tried many different apps to look up new words; however, this Merriam-Webster app satisfied all my needs. Without Internet, it still functions normally. The information is easy to access and very comprehensive. Another pros I found in this app is it was so well-developed that it rarely crashed in my phone.
