    Love this! Was recommended it by my professor
  • Glad to have a true Webster’s dictionary

    By Dale Yates
    A solid app. The bonus is that it is Webster’s New World. All I would change is to auto-highlight the search field so when I click on it to type the next search, it immediately replaces my old entry. Also, I wish it handled phonetic searches better. However, most dictionaries and spellcheckers seem incapable of processing phonetic searches well. Seems counter to the intent, though.
  • Great Dictionary

    Always up to date. Only negative is lack of etymologies.
  • It’s a dictionary

    It defines things.
  • Annoying Pop-ups

    By Eilif the Lost
    The software is not bad and performs OK, but One Star for continually soliciting a five-star review with in-your-face pop-ups. The dictionary itself is one I have been using for many years and is an excellent alternative to Mirriam-Webster.

    I find this dictionary very helpful in supporting biblical principles. When I used to use the “smartphone,” I could see why Google made it difficult and nearly impossible for me to download this dictionary.
