An App That Really Spells Out its Quality
This app is so resourceful, from its meaningful definitions, to its synonym/antonym list provided with most entries, to its history tab, to its Word of the Day, to its Thesaurus, to its subcategorised dictionary usage, to its comprehensive additional information and games, and gives the average bookworm (or typical reader) a reliable source for colourful vocabulary and related info. More synonyms/antonyms, example sentences, and words themselves would definitely make for a more exuberant experience among MW's users, though that certainly leaves all the more reason to purchase the extended version... Regardless, there seems to be nothing that stops MW from being an exceptional app, especially since it is available offline. There is no reason for a bibliophile to not appreciate this free app.
