Ratings and Reviews
Very Good - Needs just a couple of things
Good basic dictionary with speed & ability to create personal lists of favorites. However, there still are some words with incomplete definitions, so the full and true meaning of those words is not reflected (which can be misleading). I use this app very, very often (daily), and still would like ro see (1) the ability to add personal notes/comments without, of course, impacting the app's database, and (2) the ability to share (at least via email) my lists of words and defs in the Favorites folders I've created.
Useful Helper for Those Who Know
You know what the word means, but can’t quite define it. Thanks to LexicEN, you can put the word in concrete terms to explain it to others or to reacquaint yourself with that which you already know. I use this App more than I would like to acknowledge, but it jogs my brain to a more definite meaning of a word whose meaning “I know,” but can’t readily put into words.
I love the most that it gives us the option under settings to start in search tab. I also love that it is able to be used offline and that it allows us to make categories for our favorites because I like to create different categories for different books I read.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
