iPad Air — CRASH! I want my money back!

It is a great idea and I would use it as a quick reference tool. The app opens fine and you can select and use it to look up one thing but... try looking up a new word or do something else... IT WON'T because it is FROZEN and CRASHED. Sure you can QUIT the app (I don't mean close the window- I mean QUIT which is a hassle) and re-open it and do one more thing before it crashes again and again an again and so on. Let me know when you have it fixed!

IOS 8 not working on IPhone now

I love Word Wit. Great app. It currently doesn’t work on my iPhone but does work on my iPad. But I don’t always have my iPad with me so its really is a bummer. Please fix the iPhone problem. Thanks!

Adequate not flashy

This app works for someone who does no
not want a sophisticated game. As a game it is only fair but I am enjoying
learning about commonly confused words. There seem to be some bugs
such as sentences in their definitions pages that get cut off when there is
limited space. I have an iPhone 5 and haven't had any crashes such as other reviewers. Bottom line I
can't complain for a $1 game and I plan to purchase their other spin game of commonly confused phrases when I finish this game.
