    As a stand-alone dictionary the app appears to serve as well as any but I am using several dictionary apps and in comparison, many of the features on this app that require an upgrade for cost are simply free with similar service providers, such as Webster’s.
  • Very useful app

    By kessy4u
    This app is very useful. My favorite thing about it is being able to learn the meaning of a word each day. If I’m reading from a hard cover book or working on an essay, this is my go-to app for word meanings. Thank you for this possibility!

  • Cannot Link OED Subscription

    By waynev
    OED is the ultimate language reference. I purchased a yearly subscription for $90. However, I am unable to use my subscription through this app. Because I primarily use my phone for language research, I am forced to use the hideously bad OED website in my phone’s browser. Please enable full access in the app for users with annual subscriptions. Or create a mobile friendly version of you website.
  • I rate this 5 Star.
