Customer Reviews

This app is garbage and you shouldn't buy it

The original version was great. I actually spent the full $20+ to get the full version believing I was making a good investment and - embarrassingly - spent that again when I inexplicably lost access to the original purchase because I'd gotten such great use from the original. Probably should have seen that as the ominous sign it was and cut my losses, but so it goes. The new version feels like something designed by a child. I do NOT need to see a pop-up asking me to rate the app every time I need to look up a word. So now this is being deleted after 5+ years on the main screen of my phone. Posting this review in the hopes that someone learns from my mistakes. Stay away!

Has better definitions than some other apps

Will give higher rating when (1) I can sort my favorites list alphabetically, or manually in the order I wish, (2) I can change the color scheme to anything else other than the (turquoise?) color it currently is.
Other than that, I like the folders feature and the audio pronunciation feature.

All I needed

As an American who reads English novels and older English texts, as well as playing Scrabble with British English, this app perfectly suits my needs. I don't see any need for the premium version, but I might buy it at some point just because I want to support this endeavor.
