    Easy to understand and yet comprehensive
  • I love this dictionary

    By Calion
    The dictionary itself is stellar. There is no better English language dictionary. It is a prescriptive dictionary, which means it tells you what words mean, not how they have been used lately. It's what people expect from a dictionary, but most are not like this. The app itself is pretty good. It could use some interface tweaks like a Back button, but overall it works well, if not flawlessly. The biggest irritation is the continual requests for five-star reviews.
  • Comprehensive

    By Basemaly
    This is the best dictionary app because it’s the most comprehensive.
  • Infuriating UI and officially abandoned

    By CdrSpock
    This app, and several of the dev’s other dictionary apps, incessantly beg for five-star reviews. They haven’t even been updated for two years, and the interface glitches out in various ugly ways on an iPad Pro. I emailed the dev to register my dissatisfaction with these issues, and they insist that they are no longer able to update these apps for reasons they refuse to reveal. What makes you think your abandoned apps deserve five stars?
