This app is four stars because there is one thing I don't like about it but first I'll get right to the stuff I like about this dictionary. When I have a word one my homework that I don't understand or that I don't know the correct definition of then I would go to this dictionary and if I need a synonym or antonym for a word then I would also go to this dictionary. So the thing is about all these other dictionaries is that they make you sign up for it 90% of the time but with websters dictionary I can just start it. Any way time to get to the stuff that I need to give constructive criticism on. When I first tried to use the microphone I used a really simple word on it I'm pretty sure I used dog on it to see if it worked and it said no matches found so I tried again and it said dog so I guess that isn't that bad but yesterday when I tried to use the microphone it did it like 5 times before it got the word right I hope that they fix it soon so it will work for any one who's looking at this right now but that's all I have to say

Essential learning tool

I read a lot of books. When I'm not sure I know what it means i turn to M&W. There are so many words I don't know or aren't sure of the pronunciation this app makes my phone a learning tool. It's also great for giving exact definitions to kids when your unsure how to explain it in a sentence.

Great App

I am in college and am constantly looking up words to find out the definition. This app allows me how to properly spell the word as well as give me enough of the definition that helps me out. It's better than carrying around another book.
