I use this app all of the time!

Through The Eyes Of Maij

I’ve used this app in so many different situations, and must say that it rarely disappoints!

Whether coming across a word as I read books on my iPad or iPhone, or just opening the app cold, after hearing or coming across an unfamiliar word, or term, it not only gives me the information as to the word’s meaning, but often supplies information surrounding the word such it’s origins, or secondary meanings, or even how it relates to other things that I would never have guessed to be connected to that particular word or Phrase.

I have found that as I have used it more often, I now look up words that I’ve had a rudimentary understanding of, but have now found such words to mean more than I initially thought!

Love ‘Word Of The Day’, the encyclopedia, the medical dictionary ( I am a Licensed Psychiatric Technician, so...), and also used the ‘Favorites’ function and occasionally revisit my ‘Favorites’ list in order to bring those words into my every day vocabulary.

More than well worth the investment! Remember how much a good Dictionary used to cost? Not to mention how much a good set of an Encyclopedia!

Good job guys!

Awesome dictionary!


So the developer updated this app right before the release of iOS11, that’s 3 years after the previous update! Congrats to the reborn! I love this app on iPhone, and it gets even better on iPad now. But I hope developer can bring back the translation feature which I think is very convenient in app.

Awesome app.


I have had the app for many years, and found that I was relying more on this company than the many others out there. I have now even bought all the updates. Totally worth it. Highly recommended! Keep up the good work! It gets better with every update.
