What's New in Version 4.1
Sound bug fixed.
New voice recognition.
I have been someone who flunked spelling tests; looking words up was difficult because I would often start with the wrong letters. This app has changed my life!
I often use the microphone and most of the time it understands me! I am hopeful it will learn to understand me always!
I have run into a word it doesn't carry but not often.
Games in the app
Just played the word games quiz. Saw some words that I had to guess the meaning, but did pretty well! Not sure if there is a review feature - if you get s couple of definitions wrong, it would be nice to see those words defined after the game. Well worth $1.99 per year! ✅💯✅
I use this app a lot and the definitions go a long way towards helping you understand the many ways a word is used. The Word Of The Day is a nice feature and I also love the word games included in the app. This app is indispensable, I couldn't go without it.
