    Wish it had a little more of the historical background of our words, but it’s still the best dictionary app out here!
  • Perfect, except for review requests

    This app is excellent and straightforward. My only complaint is that it frequently asks me to come and review it in the App Store. I wish that could be turned off
  • Scam

    I thought for the price I would have access to the real dictionary. Instead it is no different than any free dictionary or even google. Very disappointed.
  • A decent dictionary app, but it doesn’t respect the user

    For years now there has been a new method for apps to ask for reviews that is less of an interruption. This app does not use it, therefore it is disrespectful to the user.
  • Ads after purchase

    Every single time I open the app, after having paid for it, i am asked to give it a 5 star rating. This app advertises for itself after purchase.

  • Tops! Cleans up Americanized English

    Makes life easier with accurate communication. Magna est veritas. I agree, Americans for the most part have lost the beauty of speaking and writing their Mother language, not to their fault but to the fault separation and no historical context; after all Americans are only a little over 200 years old.

    When I open the app, I hate how long the developers make you look at the title screen. They must think that it is a good advertisement but it is very annoying. Dictionary otherwise ok.
