Customer Reviews

Word of the day needs audio

The word of the day is great, but to hear how the word sounds one has to type it into the search bar and select the word to play audio. Please add audio to the word of the day. Also; searching a word has an extra step that could be removed. Typing and pressing enter only brings up a drop down tab, and even if there is only one word that fits the search criteria, one must select it before viewing the word's page. Please let the enter button go directly to the word and not to a drop down Tab under the search bar.


I loooove this app for homework!! Every week for 3rd hour I have to find this huge lists of words definition, synonym, and antonym. I used to have to search all three for the wore separately. Now it's all in one making an Hour and a half assignment ten minutes. It's also great for when your just curious and not knowing a word..

Helpful app

This app has really been helpful to me especially the daily word... It just helps increase my vocabulary. But I will suggest that the words should be out because there are times you are looking for a word that you do not know how to spell.. So I suggest a drop down of all words.
