  • All-encompassing

    By Strawberries and cream 907
    How pleasing to hear the word, see it’s varying derivatives, and learn its etymology. This dictionary does not disappoint; it is worth the fee, and it far-surpasses Dictionary. com.
  • A Must Have

  • Excellent reference

    By Lettermanswo
    I use this app about twice per day since I read a lot of books. It always gives me great I sight into the etymology and usage of the words I do not know. For $20 a year I think the creators of this app need to pay more close attention to the list of US Presidents (out of date listing Obama as the most recent) the countries and their capitals (Kazakhstan’s capital has changed names to Nur-Sultan) and does not have the most up to date name of Swaziland (Eswatini). These items are important to keep current. Current information is one of the reasons I am willing to pay. Please update.

    … next to microphone and camera to save an annoying extra step in deleting the current word. Otherwise the UI is good.
  • Better Understanding

    Words have precise meanings. Using a dictionary allows for a greater understanding of what is been read.
