requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

In-app Billing on Google Play provides a straightforward, simple interface for sending In-app Billing requests and managing In-app Billing transactions using Google Play.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    Edit: 14/04/2021: Still the app is pathetic. Everytime it is opened, a blank white screen appears for couple of second. Then, have to tap mutiple times the search bar for keyboard to appear. Further, the app also feels bulky. Its been nearly 7 to 8 months that the app is ruined. Time to switch to other app. 23/01/2021: The new update is pathetic. The old version was very good that's why i purchased it but the new update has ruined this app experience.

  2. John M. Buzz-avatar

    John M. Buzz


    This is one of the only times I have ever written a review. Spent a year collecting words under favorites, and had recently been using the quiz feature. The app wiped all my saved words, most of which I hadn't learned yet. Since the update, the app is much slower. Clear issues, and no back up or cloud feature.

  3. tim hagerty-avatar

    tim hagerty


    It's time to switch dictionary apps. The developers obviously have no intention of fixing the issue that you have to tap the search bar multiple times to get your keyboard to load. It's a money grab for them, I'm sure, because everything is a money grab these days; probably related to advertising. Either way, it's the most annoying feature I have on any app I use on my phone, and it's time for a change. Update: Used Merriam-Webster dictionary app for one minute, and it's already better

  4. shubham sharma-avatar

    shubham sharma


    Frustrating. I am a paid user. Unlocked all features hoping to use it. But the navigation amongst definition, examples, thesaurus, grammar, encyclopedia etc runs at a snails pace. Pathetically slow. Also no pronunciation is available in offline use. Improve it urgently.

  5. Alycia Lynn-avatar

    Alycia Lynn


    I was excited to see such a big update, but I'm left disappointed because there's STILL no account login for this app... and if there is, it's ridiculously difficult to find. When my old phone broke, I lost all of my saved words because there's no backup feature. Using the app seems absolutely pointless because of this, the only thing worthwhile is the word of the day widget. You're better off just using the website on mobile so that you can actually use your account. Don't chance it!

  6. Pat Miller-avatar

    Pat Miller


    Before today it was a great app. But November 1, 2020 you turned a good app into a preschool game. Wouldn't allow me to access Thesaurus. Offended and disappointed.***The problem was solved, but the number of synonyms is still smaller than before. Will try the latest update.

  7. Frank-avatar



    I had to close a pop up ad twice because my keyboard didn't pop up the first time I clicked the search bar. This is a problem because they try to force pop up ads between every word search. This wouldn't be a problem if they only tried forcing pop up ads every other word search, or every few words, or if they didn't try to force pop up ads at all like every established app/website has already figured out how to do. probably just greed. that's why you're not #1 on the play store

  8. Vanlalnundiki Sailo-avatar

    Vanlalnundiki Sailo


    I've used this app for so long. And I love it. But there's been a lot of issues recently. I've also purchased the offline dictionary but was not able to download it. It stucks like forever. Please fix this. This is the first time I've ever wrote a negative review. I'm literally not satisfied with the recent updates. Edit: I am so happy with your initiative. I'm able to downloaded the offline dictionary now and updated it. Everything works fine. Thank you.

    After three updates which have people uninstalling the app in droves, I suggested that they revert back to a working version. I was told they intend to press on with their "improvements". I therefore assume it will shortly take an hour for a definition to appear and a week to bring up the Thesaurus. These people have no concept of customer service and clearly no idea how to engineer a working app. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!

  10. The Unreal Showcaser-avatar

    The Unreal Showcaser


    Pros: The app allows you to organise categories such as rhymes, science and phrases, to better suit your convenience. You can repeat the quiz so you can learn new things. Very detailed encyclopedia and science section Cons: There is a 2 second delay between selecting different tabs. I pressed the restore purchase button but nothing happened, I really like the app, I was just curious whether a dialogue or support would come up if I wanted a refund.

  11. Brian M. Turner-avatar

    Brian M. Turner


    UPDATE: Increased to 4 stars as I can see developers are trying to fix this once-great and functional app. I am a proud pro user as I use this app on a daily basis. I have an important suggestion: Implement a tiny feature that shows if a word is British or American with two separate pronunciations one being British and another American. I think that would be very helpful.

  12. Chiranjiv Gurnasinghani-avatar

    Chiranjiv Gurnasinghani


    I have purchased the offline dictionary, but still can't download for offline use. Pathetic. Can someone address this ??? Update : The WiFi connection is super strong, the phone has 80gb of free space. The download still doesn't start.

  13. KJ-avatar



    Word of the day notification stopped working after upgrade. Didn't change any settings. Notifications are set to allow. Uninstalled and re-installed, allowed settings again. Still not received notification. As of 11th Jan still not getting word of the day notifications. And I can't stay signed in, logs me out. Android phone. Be nice if you'd fix it. Yippee Word of the Day worked today, first time in months, thanks!

  14. Speed Racer-avatar

    Speed Racer


    Word of the day works again!!! Unfortunately still no settings to toggle it on/off. Word of the day notifications opens to the app home screen rather than going directly to the word's definition, requiring additional navigation clicks to open the word of the day. Perhaps offer an option for word & synonym of the day to be combined as one daily notification/widget? Black (dark) mode for AMOLED screens would be appreciated, also for the widgets

  15. Kamlesh Phoenix Wen-avatar

    Kamlesh Phoenix Wen


    So fed up from hoping that a fix has been made from every update, only to be hit by the truth that the bugs are still there (sometimes even made worse). The app has ultimately been unusable since the last few updates: the search function and definitions take too long to load, unswitchable tabs (e.g. Thesaurus, Learners, Grammar), unresponsive UI, and generally clunky and slow app performance. This dictionary has the potential to be the best, but only if it really worked!

  16. Lingesh Shanmugam-avatar

    Lingesh Shanmugam


    In recent times can't able to open the app. If it gets open, can't able to find the keypad. Makes me to wait for much more time to get a meaning of Single word. Previously it was my favourite app in my phone. Now because of this mess, I prefer google instead of opening this app. Please build a nice update to rectify the problems.

  17. Amber Triplett-avatar

    Amber Triplett


    How do i get a refund, or the free version back? The paid for version is so slow. 18 minutes on wifi for one single synonym. The free version was so much quicker. I paid for the updates, now it is very slow and it takes several minutes to load a single word only to push on the thesaurus to get synonyms and have to wait several more minutes for that to load. This did not happen to me until after I paid for the upgrades.

  18. Hannan Ahmad-avatar

    Hannan Ahmad


    The new user interface is extremely buggy. It just ruins the whole experience. First it takes a while to boot the application. And when offline mode is especially slow. Fix this issue kindly.

  19. Ioannis Tsangarides-avatar

    Ioannis Tsangarides


    This app used to be 5/5 with the old UI interface. This new one is slow, blocky, laggy, and incredibly frustrating. I hate this version of the app, as well as the people who designed it. I haven't a semblance of an idea for why functionality would be sacrificed for aesthetics on a blasted dictionary app of all things!

  20. Tahir Khan-avatar

    Tahir Khan


    I have been using it since so long, it was a good offline dictionary, i had suggested it to others too but recent update converted it to online which caused it to slow down. It's taking much time to findout a single word.

  21. Smily Bajaj 2219-avatar

    Smily Bajaj 2219


    I simply adore this application. Incredible user experience, simple yet catchy look. I have been this app for the past 2 years on all of my devices. As a literature student and avid reader, this app is my go-to when I do my work. a must app.

  22. Timothy Jah Darwei-avatar

    Timothy Jah Darwei


    Super cool app...it works like magic. I used to have it offline. Recently, the offline version has refused to download. But the whole dictionary is worth having.

  23. ss sodhi-avatar

    ss sodhi


    Since 3 days, only the offline version is working, ie. Dictionary and Thesaurus. No amount of updates is helping nor are the settings of any help, although the app does indicate that my purchases are intact. Google Play did update my app but I cannot reset my password as the website does not respond. Feeling helpless.

  24. Peter Rivoli-avatar

    Peter Rivoli


    3/10: The app now crashes within seconds of opening. Brand new phone, everything updated. One more spark to the wildfire of irresponsible barely tested updates consuming the world. Update 3/19: still crashing and support has provided zero assistance despite giving video screen shares and full device specs.

  25. Matty Bryant-avatar

    Matty Bryant


    I use this app everyday in my studies and I love it. It always helps me understand more and has every word I've ever needed. it's a must for those looking to learn more and grow in their understanding.

  26. Alex C-avatar

    A great app, but I find myself forgetting what I was looking up because of the ads. They constantly compete for your attention which interferes with learning.

    been using this app for years and purchased the full pack, recently it is so sluggish and I have a really hard time switching tabs(between definition/thesaurus/learners/etc. Please fix the bugs! cause I really love this app and want to continue use it 😭

  28. Siddhant Bhanawat.-avatar

    Siddhant Bhanawat.


    It was my favorite app till recently. With the latest updates, the app is degraded heavily. The amount of words in thesaurus have significantly reduced. I think i might change the app.

  29. Mohit Sharma-avatar

    I paid for the old version and I had to pay again when the developer updated the version. otherwise the app is good. should do more quizzes and blog posts like before.

    Lastest update and still have to wait 15 minutes for the key pad to come up, I can't move from thesaurus back to definitions, just the worst app, that was perfect before the last 2 updates

    It worked really well before they did a big redesign, then it became slow and buggy. Before I would have given it 4 or 5 stars.

    Awful app. The words I tag as "favorites" are automatically deleted from the list after a couple hours. Is it supposed to do this??? Ridiculous. Don't download this app. Find another dictionary app. Seriously.

    Basic functionality is good, but it is a little bloated and will probably get more user-hostile over time.

  47. Van Forrester-avatar

    Van Forrester


    Too slow. When you think about how little data it takes to convey the several meanings if a word, it shouldn't take more than 3 seconds to boot the app, and .2 seconds to show a definition after you type it in. A functional dictionary isn't computer-rocket science. As you can imagine, the extra 10 seconds it takes is for loading ads, and by that point the conversation you were looking up the word for has moved on or is now in awkward silence. Get a free offline dictionary instead.

  48. Andrew Mezei-avatar

    Andrew Mezei


    Free version has taken a hit over the last few years but the paid options seem super reasonable.

  49. Robert Corum-avatar

    Robert Corum


    When your ad takes over my phone, and the back button doesn't dismiss it, and I have to touch the ad, even if it is to click "close," that is when you get uninstalled. I cannot fathom how even a marketing person could think that trying to use a machine to control a human being is a good way to get money out of them. Let me be clear, I get having ads to pay for a free app. It's the feeling of taking over my phone because I have to touch the ad to close it. In a world where that can get you a virus or even just take you to a website you don't want to go to, that is a no-go.

    Great and convenient studying resource that provides quick and easy access to to words. The Thesaurus gives more than you actually bargain for. Besides the adverts that keep popping up, it's a great resource. But then, nothing is entirely free.

    Deborah Slattery


    I used to love this app but it's become glitchy, or at least for me it has. No word of the day. Also, when I try to log on it tells me my email address is incorrect which is not true as it's the same one I have had forever. Password reset requests seem to be difficult too. I finally gave up on the app and installed another dictionary app.

    I hope the next "update" goes back to your previous format. I hate this app now and will replace it if it doesn't revert to be more like it used to be. UPDATE.... I cannot stand this new version any longer and from the reviews others agree. I will be deleting. I wish I could give it a ZERO.

  61. Kayla The Valiant-avatar

    Kayla The Valiant


    I am so disappointed with this new upgrade. I bought this app with full access, but now it is wanting to charge me for example sentences, and the other extras which I already had before. I used to love dictionary as it was more of a defined collective than searching the vast expanse of the internet, however with this new update clogging up it's main purpose, and having it's various capabilities taken away from me. I have a feeling I will be deleting it soon if there aren't changes made.

    I bought the ad free version. It's full of bug, so slow that I have to wait 5 seconds to find meaning of any word. I tried downloading just to make it faster to load but it made it even slower. Besides that when I am trying to move from definitions to thesaurus, to learners and so on, it's so slow that it makes me want to stop using this app. I had good experience using this app few years ago. What happened in the meantime? Please fix it as soon as possible.

  65. Michael Liu-avatar

    Michael Liu


    The latest version is TOO heavy, I have been a big fan of this app, and I purchased all package, it was really good to use, but since several months ago, it changed to a new User Interface, which is not bad, but with a terrible side effect that the app became too SLOW and HEAVY to load any words, couldn't believe it takes several seconds only to return to the previous page.

  66. D. Scott-avatar

    D. Scott


    Not sure what has happened, but the sound hasn't worked since the new update. I can no longer hear the pronunciation of words when tapping on the sound icon! Will update to five stars once this is fixed, this is my favorite dictionary app! Updated same day 1/21/21 Thanks for the reply, I updated as you suggested, and all is well with the world again!😁

  67. Nick Rowark-avatar

    Nick Rowark


    The app has been severely downsized recently, in both design and function. It's far clunkier and less responsive, and I can no longer scroll multiple search predictions beyond what comes up on the screen. This is a shame because I've historically had a great experience with the app and enjoy the core features that remain, such as the word of the day. I hope there will soon be an update to remedy these issues.

  68. Samuel David-avatar

    Samuel David


    *Edit. After updates this app is back to being great!The recent update is a huge disadvantage and takes away alot of functionality and ease of access. I used to be able to highlight a word while reading or writing an a notebook app and click on dictionary. I can't do that now and its pretty frustrating. When I click on "restore purchase" nothing happens. Wack.

    I've had this app for a while and I honestly really liked it, but I'm not overly fond of it, especially now that you have to buy the offline version. I like writing but I often need to search up words (I mainly use(d) the thesaurus) and all to help me and with not being able to use it offline I can't figure out the words as much as I'd like to due to not having internet access constantly. However, other than that it is a good app. I also really miss the old layout and visual design

    I meant that you can switch between the thesaurus and the dictionary, and the word of the day is always fun!

    Used to be great.... This app was my go to dictionary. I even paid for the premium so I could have offline use. I switched google accounts and had to pay again but they "updated" it. More like a downgrade. Glitches all the time, now I have to click on a definition after searching for a word where as before incentv works was selected it just showed the definition right away. Also pronunciation never works. Go back to the old app and I'll buy it again.

  72. Felix Fuentes-avatar

    Felix Fuentes


    After the recent update. It seems that I can no longer search the definition of words in the search bar. And even when I try clicking anything else or scrolling up or down nothing is working. Thank you for your respond. However I'm unable to select the feedback option in the app since when I open the app it dose not allow me to move or select anything. Therefore unable to report the issue via in app. It is okay since I had deleted the app since it no longer works.

    Another update and still you cannot highlight a word and copy and paste it, forcing you to type it out, I know you can share, but this is not the same, as sometimes you only need part of a sentence very inconvenient! Also within the definition i cannot look up a word like i could before, not happy :-(

    Went into settings > personalize. What does those settings do? Why don't they move when I drag the hamburger icons. Oh wait, they moved now but now they won't move back. What have I even done? And why would I want to "personalize" the order of those things? IDK And for a real test I intentionally misspelled a word. The word I wanted was in the suggestion list so that's good. But then, BAM, full screen ad! I've seen enough. I'm out.

    Rifled with ads, used to be much better. Ads could always be non-inteusive. Instead of making sidebar ads, or banner ads, they are loud ads that block your entire screen. Widget does not update itself for the word of the day. It will show the old word of the day until you go into the app itself and change it. This defeats the purpose of the widget.

    Lately this app has been very glitchy. When you open it it seems like it loads 3 times, and if you back out of the app you end up swiping through all those redundant screens. It's super odd, and it acted that way on my gS9, and it's doing the same on a new gS21. I'm starting to lose faith that the devs will ever get around to fixing what up to this point has been a good app.

    Being prompted to use this app every day by a new word to investigate the meaning of; I have spent lots of time reading about aspects of the English language. I also highly value both the dictionary and thesaurus and the simplicity of discovering and rediscovering words. The word grid and other quizzes are a fun bonus too.

    I am well educated but I frequently encounter words I'm not sure exactly what they mean. While I'm reluctant to interrupt what I'm doing to find a printed dictionary, with this app I just need to highlight the word to get a pop-up menu that will take me straight to the definition. Then with one click I can back out of the dictionary & return to what I was reading. I I Iove it!

    Recent use -- so annoyed. Ads disruptive. New UI is not worth the money. Latest thoughts on latest update--NO good! Already commented, is below. Was using app a lot recently, and I miss the old interface. It was more colorful. The word cards seemed to be designed to align with the word. THAT was cool. <3 The UI now is boring. Past Review: The Word of the Day feature is the reason I have this app. The card in the app used to show the definition, but now I have to tap to get load and get it.

    Updated review for the updated version: 1. Slow app launch and laggy response on cross launching from "dictionary" option of selected text context menu. 2. Widget 2.1: the widget just doest fit well, definition for word of the day is half out of view with any size of the widget. 2.2: missing the search option on the widget, it was nice and handy in the old widget style. 2.3: missing pronunciation option on widget. 3. I just fallback to Google For definitions now 😕, still Keeping the app.

    Ever since the update..... the widget no longer works!! The whole reason I had this app to begin with was cuz I like the option of having the dictionary search bar on my home screen n simply typing in when I have a word I want to look up. I also loved having the word of the day on my home screen as well instead of having to open the app to find the word of the day... so disappointed with these changes.... hopefully this can go back to how it was ...

    Why? Why? When you have given this pleasing sign-in-and-save option on your website; why have you deprived us app users of it? I open up the app after updates in hope to see that blue and beautiful sign-in button, but then in moments arrive the saddening sigh. What wrong have we done to you, in this or your last life? What curse have we spelled upon your company? We adore you by day and night, but see what ways you treat us with!

  86. self-improvement-avatar



    App was great to use until the upgrade. I still appreciate the words of the day and week. But, now you have to pay for example sentences when that previously wasn't the case. Truly unfortunate as I like viewing definitions in context. I'll keep those of you in the same boat as me updated, if i find a more accomadating app. Edit: The Merrian-Webster free dictionary also includes word of the day and example sentences no cost. Those of you looking for those features, try Merriam-Websters.

    what is going on with this app? it used to be the best one out there, so much so, i purchased all the bells and whistles. but after last year's update it started its decline. just to search, i'd have to tap on the small search space not once, not twice, but three times. not convenient, but doable. now with the latest update searching has slowed to a crawl. plus it begins in dictionary mode even if i'm in thesaurus, flashing out the definition and then slowly transitioning to the synonyms. yuck.

    This app is complete garbage since the recent updates. Why the heck did you add so many ads?! Its infuriating, I can't even search a damn word without some stupid pop up ad taking over the whole screen and you can't even close them... Deleting this garbage immediately, and I've had the app for like 7 years now and I used it all the time... extremely disappointed

    Used to be good, simple and elegant. I just want the definition to pop up... Also I purchased the Encyclopedia for 2.99...now it's not showing in the upgrades nor can I get it back when I click restore purchases. Seems like they sold me a feature that was obsoleted or deleted after I purchased it. Apply a refund please. Update 2/26/21: despite the notice from developer and following their instructions, still no encyclopedia. Ironic the word of the day was "bamboozle".

    • The swapping of DEFINITIONS columns in the THESAURUS column or any other columns is not fluid. • Voice search does not function. • widget UI stays white despite changing the appearance of the app to black. • Search results are not instantly available. • After purchase/upgrade, why does the DEFINITION column show the CONTENT UPGRADES section? I think it's unnecessary after upgrade/purchase.

    The sun may be 'shining' but definitely not on your subscribers. Is it just me or are you oblivious to the scant and parched content on your app? The content is not 'timely', it is rather 'time-lapsed' and 'time-lagged'. Moreover, it is titillatingly tiring to visit your site every time we wish to read something new or attempt a new quiz; because the platform is teeming with tormenting & 'adhoc' ads. Don't patronise us with your 'pats' because we are providing you patronage. Excelsior, you say?

    Running pretty slow lately; I have to wait page loading for few seconds till I can read it. Also Favorites feature is bugged: I can't delete saved words from the list no matter how many times I try it; at first time they seem to be deleted, yet each time I reopen the app they appear in the list again. In all the other senses the app is satisfying and I recommend it pretty much.

Wouldent mind supporting with info if I can support addressing the problem and verry happy to give a 5 star when it works again.

    I had the old version and mistakenly uninstalled it. Reinstall the app and now I am stuck with this new version which I DO NOT LIKE. This new version is unappealing to the eyes. You took away what used to be free and now we have to pay for it. I get it, you have to make money with your app. But please bear in mind that there are those who can't afford to pay for every little upgrade especially when it used to be free. After all what is the Ads for.

    Ads ads ads.... and more ads. I know it's 'free' and to now expect ads but i feel this is over the top and slows the app. I'd 'x' out of the ads but I'm don't spend enough time on the app for this to be worth searching through the busy page and finding the 'x'. Used to be soooo good, but as the saying goes: Nothing is free... and if it is, not for long.

    I utilize the thesaurus the most, attempting to broaden my vocabulary. plus it prevents me from being or appearing to be repetitive, using the same word or words over and over. The additional word of the day feature is useful if wanting to increase your vocab.... I'll receive the word, then spend the remainder of the day challenging myself, seeing how many times I'm able to properly incorporate the word while speaking...

  101. Arun-avatar



    Whoever decided to design this new app should be fired, Yes it is that bad. The earlier version was one of the best apps i used on my phone. It takes 2 seconds to open, 4 seconds to search for a word, filled with bugs, glitches when you search for a word, can't access offline dictionary( i am pro user) , gets stuck frequently. The worst part- DEVELOPERS ARE UNABLE TO SOLVE ANY OF THE ISSUES !!! ITS BEEN 5-6 MONTHS SINCE THE AFOREMENTIONED PROBLEMS PERSIST & SEE!! ITS STILL THERE. Stupid app.

    When I first installed this, I was glad that I can see some clear definitions and I thought of saving vocabularies in order to improve my English vocabularies. But as I closed the app, and re-open it, it ended up having no saved vocabularies (favorites), which made me think of giving this app a 2-star rating.

    The search bar needs modification. When searching for a word, a user can't see the word being typed in its entirety. This is in stark contrast to the previous version where the search bar was fully visible. Have someone in your development team conducted a usability test

    Jacob Stalter


    Legitimately awful. I know it's a free app, but once it became a trash can for ads, I was over it. Really handy if you're capable of finding words on it, however, due to speed seemingly being throttled by its ability to shower you in ads, I doubt you will.

    Since the latest UI changes and updates the app has become extremely slow that I no longer want to use it. When clicked on any word it doesn't take you to the definitions of that word, can not copy words, etc. My disappointment is immeasurable.

    Good but please get rid of the word puzzle game because it way too hard and has a bunch of little words that no one will ever use or know. How are"BK", "NK", "AL" words??? Is BK meaning burger king?? This game needs to be replaced with a much easier and less confusing one. Or replace it with the "Learn" articles! They used to be so much better. Bottom line is the Word Puzzle Game needs to go! Thank you.

    Thank you so much for the dark theme update, it looks so beautiful and reduces eye stress at night. Just add cloud saving of my search history and favorite marked words.😁 Overall the content of the app is amazing, words definition is appropriate, you'll understand each and every word in detail and also their pronounciation I've purchased its pro pack and am completely loving it. Best dictionary among all the apps available on android!! Adieu ✌️

    [UPDATE: You caught and zapped the Bug 🦗 in v8.13.1 Release]... I been using the free version (4★) for a along time, overall it's pretty good. Intrigued & excited, I decided to get the Power Pack. I was very disappointed the Grammar, Idioms, Science, Medical, Rhymes and Encyclopedia came up short with the results. No ads was great, but still had those nagging purchase blocks everywhere. Power Pack 2★, combined rating 3★.

    What happened to this app? The favorite word should have their own tab with each term there should be an alphabet tab from a to z to minimize the list. The built in favorites list is not good and has many bugs such as disappearing texts and unexpected spaces. This app was good not great but now is just terrible. Why did I even pay for this.

  120. Remembrance-avatar



    It's really sad to see in comparison how good this app used to be. The few recent updates have been nothing but of no substance, just gradually getting worse in terms of UI, app responsiveness & especially the flood of ads it now carries. Seems like greed got to the best of them.

    It works really well. As does the website it is built on. The ipa/phonetic respelling seems not to do anything: It's inactive which ever is chosen.

    Opens multiple instances of the app when I try looking up a definition using the context menu. Uses up mobile data and messes up whatever I'm working on. I'm a premium user. Update: Took awhile but the devs listened and fix the bug. Updating review from 2 stars to 5.
