  1. Jessica M.-avatar

    I love this app! Big words pop into my head all the time, this app really helps you find what you're looking even if you're not a great speller, like myself. I just with that it had a an option to use night mode. The bright white background really strains the eye. But it is really a great app. Even the full version makes the experience more enjoyable.

  2. Mae-avatar

    If an option to turn off the sound for ads in the app is not added I am deleting it. EDIT: After a nice period of quiet, the ads are again screaming at me. The developer's suggestion? Turn down my volume before opening the app. 🙄 I'm not going to take extra steps to use one particular app unless it's to delete it. Since you won't adjust your app to your users, I'll find another app that's more user friendly.

  3. Ginger Guillot-avatar

    Amazingly smart! I absolutely love this dictionary app, I had the one that came with my phone and every time I entered a word it would give me the definition for entirely different word. This one gives me the correct meaning plus so much more . How long the word has been around and you press the speaking to hear the pronunciation of every word. It's a 5 star app

  4. Hayley Fletcher-avatar

    Hayley Fletcher


    This is a great app and does what I wanted it to. Not for the faint of heart, when using the search feature this app also autoplays video ads, one of which is accompanied by audio of literal screaming. Gave me a flipping fright when it first happened. I have no problem with free apps serving ads, but when I'm trying to relax with a book I don't need cartoons screaming at me. Perhaps this respected site could be a bit more discerning with the ads served with respect to the target audience.

  5. Bryan Williams-avatar

    The app works but is sooooooooo slow to launch on Android 4.4.2. Why?? All I want to do is look up the def of a word, but it takes 1-2 mins just to open and allow me to start typing. In that time I could open a half dozen browsers and search for the def there. Once it's finished all of its unnecessary pre-launch routines, the app does work well. But the launch is just awful. I can't even imagine what it might be doing before letting me just type in a word??? There is nothing else.

  6. Kristen Talley-avatar

    I've been using this app for 10 years, but I uninstalled it today because it's gone down the tubes. To look up a word, you have to first watch an ad, just like with YouTube. If I'm looking up a word, I'm probably reading. There are few things as annoying as having someone try to distract you while reading, much less a dictionary app. I'll be using Chrome from now on. What a shame.

  7. prathamesh seth-avatar

    prathamesh seth


    A great app meant for the ones requiring a robust vocabulary and also some form of lexical reading. It helps craft ornate prose. The articles issued daily provide with very informative and interesting trivia on words, their etymology, historical account, and usage. All-in- all, a great app! I love the older interface layout of the app. The newer interface layout is tad bit ugly. Please make it beautiful and let users be glued to the dictionary for acquiring vocabulary. Kudos to the team!

  8. Asif Shahriar Nafi-avatar

    Asif Shahriar Nafi


    This app needs a phrasal verbs section. Moreover, the UI is not stunning, it lacks modern dynamic high resolution stylish interface. It should be overhauled completely. Also, the options are organized in such a way that it arises confusion on the first use. Overall the app is good but not worth the money.

  9. Insightful Coffee-avatar

    Insightful Coffee


    Not pleased with widget behaviour. 4x1 size means it displays WotD definition cut-off. I see 3/4 of the first line only. You should be able to see more text by resizing the widget. As well, it's been so buggy in loading definitions, usually displaying nothing. Uninstall/reinstall, will monitor further to see if bugs have been resolved. Could you please allow widget resizing/alternative sizes? Surprised after so many years, it can still only be 4x1.

  10. Jihoon Oh-avatar

    WARNING! Don't update. You'll get more ads. Ads used to show up on the bottom. I just updated this app to the latest version and full page ads showed up when I searched words. I went back to my previous version (version released about 10 months back) and the full page ads no longer show up.

  11. N G-avatar

    Has the worst ads I have seen in an app. For every other word you look up, it gives you a loud, full screen ad. I was using it for the feature that lets you look up highlighted words with one tap but the convenience isn't worth getting jumpscares. Uninstalled.

  12. Nausheen Hafeez-avatar

    Nausheen Hafeez


    I've been using this app since many years and I love it . But recently I've found a glitch in the app. The word of the day gets updated in the application itself but doesn't show up in the widget. The widget is stuck with the old word of the day.

  13. sandeep rana-avatar

    Hey, Overall experience of the app is great. The only feature I feel missing in the app is exporting your "Favourite word" as PDF or Doc. I am using this app to help with my vocab and if exporting of word will be there it would be great help for students and learners.

  14. jane bagg-avatar

    I like this. Word of the Day is often instructive. Links to info on specific topics (like Contagious vs Infectious) are also helpful. My one complaint is that the latter would be more readable if divided into paragraphs and, especially, if commas were used between words in a series!

  15. Gulzhan Musaeva-avatar

    Gulzhan Musaeva


    Paid for its Examples extension not knowing they offer it inside a much more inclusive bundle. A lot of the sample sentences provided are very odd and appear to have been taken from some arcane texts. Hate the ads, so disruptive!!! Not recommended.

  16. Katie Sherman-avatar

    I was looking up the definition of a word and ads start screaming at me! I'd rather take the time and go to a website than use an app that starts playing sound unprompted. And no you will not get my money by assaulting me with loud ads.

  17. Olu Olumese-avatar

    This app has been very useful. It would even be better if you could create an account so you can have all your favourites saved. Recently had to change my device and I have lost all the words I saved on my former device.

  18. Zawad Alif-avatar

    It was a 5* app, but the previous few updates are not user friendly. Like in the earlier version clicking a word use to take to the meaning of that word.. It was very worthwhile, I miss that feature and if you could introduce signup or something to export favourite words to the new device

  19. iman rachman-avatar

    I purchased the example sentences in the hope that I would be able to use a word in plain sentences used in daily conversations. Instead, most of the examples u gave me are not easy to understand. TWO STARS

  20. Kim Hardin-avatar

    The Word of the Day is STILL LAGGING BEHIND on the widget and I can't even get to the home page from the widget, plus the horrible ads that others have mentioned. This app is worthless to me now.

  21. Sham Teal-avatar

    Bought and paid for a full bundle upgrade but received nothing, visited faqs followed advice uninstall, reinstall made no difference. Had wanted to use one of the upgrade options straight away but had to give up. Have reported to Google and applied for a refund.

  22. 32 year old man-avatar

    32 year old man


    Pretty good app, there's the occasional add, and I wish the wiget was a bit smaller and you could add words to the dictionary, but it's a solid app.

  23. Mark Mockler-avatar

    Buggy. When I search a word it jumps to the thesaurus instead of definition, and in general it could do with a tune-up, some of the daily content (quizzes, etc) don't run smoothly and sometimes not at all

  24. Robert Rothrock-avatar

    Robert Rothrock


    One of the best ways to start your day is Word of the Day! Great app. Very helpful, especially being able to easily shift from Dictionary to Thesaurus.

  25. Ami McKinney-avatar

    I use this app all the time and I love receiving the word of the day. You can click to hear the pronunciation if you are unsure of how to pronounce a word. I highly recommend.

  26. Steve White-avatar

    Works pretty well, but requires excessive permissions. There is no good reason for it to read and write files, or to know my precise location.

  27. Sushant Kumar-avatar

    The dictionary has a good database of words but the interface is jarred by ads. And even if purchasing the expert pact there is no such feature as a dark mode.

  28. sanjay dharanendra-avatar

    sanjay dharanendra


    Wow!, this app. is stupendous!. You can learn new and rarely used words everyday!, which would rattle your brains!. Show off😊 your vocabulary in front of your friends as well😉!.

  29. Muhammad Hassan-avatar

    Muhammad Hassan


    App is continuously going to be crashed after latest update. Everything after Z is quite good but here there is one thing to be improved and that is layout.

  30. Haley Maloff-avatar

    Woo, words! Certainly one of the better dictionary apps out there. Their word of the day is usually interesting, as well.

  31. Edmond Binuya-avatar

    Ads are annoying!!! Fine, it's a free app so I get it; but if I have my phone on silent or Do Not Disturb, can the ads follow the same rule? The ads also seen unusually loud. Louder than my set media volume. If I need to look a word up in the middle of a meeting, I don't need the ad all of the sudden blasting at full volume.

  32. ChandraShekher Mishra-avatar

    ChandraShekher Mishra


    Informative and useful but the app usage is trash. EDIT : Im talking about the way the app is customized. It looks like you made it just for sake of something. There should some passion atleast. The app is so badly customized. See the formatting of text and the organization....its horrendous. Although im going to increase one star because im a great guy.

  33. Ali Raza Khoso-avatar

    Really it's good app but problem is that there are lot of problems as daily words and little bit more and sometimes this dictionary has jittered me plz improve such things.

  34. Coolfrost Mist-avatar

    Annoying pop up ads. Is really frustrating to type a word and 70% of the time an ad only to appear before you can see your search result in a 4 seconds defined by a horrendous wacky screaming ad animation. People must not use your app so often since you expect people to watch few ads at 5 am in the morning while writing something down quick. I am deleting this and rather use the web versions

  35. Pratik Mukherjee-avatar

    Pratik Mukherjee


    Best dictionary, short and simple but accurate. You get exactly what you need, no extra waste.

  36. NORA M.M-avatar

    It's a good app but the deducted one star was for the widget's size: it's only 4x1; meaning there's no more space but one line if there's more to the word's meaning; aka short widget. Meaning I have to go click on the widget to see the full meaning of a word, this action nullifies a widget's function: quick reading. Can you make the widget resizable?

  37. ayush negi-avatar

    A very good app but now I face issues in reading the word facts , word trends and stories etc . I mean the interface is poor .. the words are all crammed up in a single screen with a less font , no bold words nor italics which makes it hard for a user to read all informational stuffs . Please do something .. so that the topic looks interesting to read ...

  38. Anton No-avatar

    An ad wall with sound, seriously? I've got some yelling falling guy in the middle of my lesson full blast even after I'd turned off the sound. Unacceptable

  39. Dwain Gurley-avatar

    Handier than a pocket on a shirt ! I still love this app. No bs, the epitome of quality. All apps should be so adept.

  40. Rebecca-avatar

    I love this app because I use it to dig deeper into the meaning of scripture in my Bible study. It's very handy and it's one of the first apps I download on every new phone. I would be giving it 5 ⭐ if it were not for the full page pop up ads. I have low vision and whenever one of those ads pop up it makes me lose my spot. I have to go back and search the entire entry and that can be very difficult with a tiny field of vision... I do realize it's necessary it's just sad. Banner ads are better.

  41. Normanshah Mohd Sah-avatar

    Normanshah Mohd Sah


    I love this as it has the word of the day! I always use it and in the end I get a high score for my composition.

  42. Joey Sanchez-avatar

    Quick and accurate. Super easy. Love the 'word of the day' portion.

  43. Kieran Benn-avatar

    Pretty Good Dictionary App. For American English. Lots of Links & Also Has a Download Version. Educational Tool - as long as you keep in mind that It's Amercanlish!

  44. Chris Hazeldene-avatar

    Chris Hazeldene


    I like this app and use it regularly. Can I make a couple of suggestions? 1. Having excerpts from books/stories with interesting vocabulary and writing styles would be really useful. 2. The articles seem to have become big blocks of text with little formatting. For a small device, clear paragraphs, numbering, bullet-points and the use of bold text all ease the burden on the eye.

  45. Jynine Copeland-avatar

    Jynine Copeland


    I like having an app that I can quickly check if I need to, and I love the "word of the day" I get every morning!

  46. Soumyadeep Ghosh-avatar

    Soumyadeep Ghosh


    I just bought the power pack but encyclopedia, science /medical dictionary is not available for offline. I want everything offline including pronunciation. And I want dark mode also. UPDATE : I know It will be a large file, but I'm willing to download Gbs of data. This days midrange phone comes with minimum 64GB (atleast 32GB) storage. Add separate options to download extra add-ons or not. This will be helpful. Specially if we could download pronunciation.

  47. Joseph Faria-avatar

    Great app, useful for both a person that has English as second language and native speakers of English. The premium feature also makes other options available if have interest on learning more about words. Also great that they make an offline dictionary available if you want to

  48. AnneMarie Caro-avatar

    Update: the widget is working again! I've used this app for a long time on multiple phones. Recently the widget that displays thre word of the day stopped working. That was my favorite thing. Now I have to click on it, scroll through about a month worth of previous words to get to the word of the day. I tried uninstalling and then downloading again, I checked that there were no updates, I've restarted my phone, I'm not sure why it's doing this. I love this app, but it got a little less awesome.

  49. Dan Flores-avatar

    I'm experiencing the same issue with the Word of the Day being a month behind. I've tried removing the widget, force-stopping the app, clearing the cache, clearing the data, reinstalling the app... Nothing has seemed to fix it. UPDATE 02/13/2020: Thanks! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have worked. I updated the app, but my Word of the Day is still behind. UPDATE 03/24/2020: The widget works correctly again! Thanks for the additional fix!

  50. Khatina Brunson-avatar

    Khatina Brunson


    I used to really love this app. But now, Word Of The Day is annoying. You have to do extra clicks to see the definition for the WOTD. It used to be right on the front page. Links to other words from the WOTD definition don't work. WOTD history loads a page of tiles that is just the words only, so you have to click on each one to see what it means. And the redesign hurts my eyes. I don't understand why some developers take a perfectly good thing and make it bad.

  51. Aimee Lynn Bailey-avatar

    Aimee Lynn Bailey


    Awesome & informative... I try to use my word of the day at some point throughout my day... I LOVE learning new words

  52. Aaron George-avatar

    Gem of an app. Enabled me to search the definitions of words without a hassle. Only complaint is that the word of the day lags by a day and also the widget on my home screen seems determined to show me words from a month ago. One of my favorite features was the word of the day and it's sad to find it glitching so. Tried reinstalling the app, but to no avail. Hope the devs can rectify this.

  53. Christopher Jackson-avatar

    Christopher Jackson


    Great app, I even paid for the full version. It's extremely useful. I would give it five stars if it connected to google books so that I could use their app whenever I wanted to know more about a particular word. Best dictionary app I have used. It tells earlier forms of the word/roots, examples, synonyms, in depth definitions, and more.

  54. Akash Ray-avatar

    I love the word of the day widget and had been using it for over 5 years. Unfortunately, after the recent update, I've lost the ability to resize it on my home screen which makes it look awkward as it takes more space than is required and a blank bar the bottom. This has forced me to remove it. Could you please fix this so I could start using it again? I'll be glad to share screenshots. (Using Oneplus 6)

  55. Antonio Rosario-avatar

    Antonio Rosario


    GREAT APP Problem fixed: Have the widget on home page. Click on word of the day when app opens, the WOD is for Jan 9 2020, today is Feb 9 2020. Other times the widget has a "word of the day" when i select to view definition its a complete other word. When i select View All to see past WOD, the word that was on the widget is not even a past WOD.

  56. Ernest Thornhill-avatar

    Ernest Thornhill


    Years ago I was looking a way to improve my English, everything about it, from grammar to pronunciation. This app was one of the few tools that helped me accomplish that. I am immensely grateful to the developers, because it truly changed my life: better job, better education... Would buy the premium features again and again just to support the devs.

  57. paul barno-avatar

    I've always chosen to put this app on all the cell phones I've ever had it helps you with verbal pronunciation & spelling & you can always find a similar word

  58. Kurt Van Wyk-avatar

    All good, only complaint is that the words of the day are not in order. Weird...

  59. Twiggy Snyder-avatar

    A dark mode option would get you five stars. It's blinding at night even on the lowest brightness setting.

  60. Andrew-avatar

    I love the app, but the very loud video advertisements are completely inappropriate. I have no complaint with advertising. But please have the video advertisements muted by default. I use this dictionary app in quiet libraries and work environments. It's REALLY embarrassing and disruptive for others when your video advertisements suddenly appear without warning and start blasting out their 'music.' Not cool! I'd give your app 5 stars if it wasn't for the loud volume of your advertisements.

  61. Christopher-Ian Belgrave-avatar

    Christopher-Ian Belgrave


    I have updated, uninstalled, and reinstalled this app and am still having issues with the WOTD widget being almost a month behind. Ironically, as of today, it is showing me WOTD for 2.20, which is when the devs responded to another comment (with the saying issue) saying that it had been fixed - which is interesting to note because the comment was from roughly a week ago. I have the most up-to-date version and my experience has not changed.

  62. d.u.g. Drilly!-avatar

    The etomology of words needs to be more accurate. Most modern languages and alphabets derive some ancient language or alphabet.

  63. Daniel-avatar

    It's an otherwise good app that I've been using for years but the video ads are ridiculous. I can live with banner ads because I know the developers have to make a profit somehow but intrusive video ads that play while I'm reading in the library or looking something up in the middle of a meeting are totally disruptive and unnecessarily bring attention to myself

  64. A-A B.-avatar

    I enjoy how easy this app is! One feature I love is the Word of the Day; I like learning some of those rare or difficult words, but unfortunately, it often consists (about 1 third of the time) of a basic FRENCH word... being a francophone, this is useless to me. I really wish it could feature english words more, since this is an english dictionary. I also like reading the Everything after Z section! I must admit that I no longer read them, though, since the format changed, without paragraphs

  65. Kyle Almost-avatar

    This app is good. There is alot of futures. It will run you about 10$ for alot of it. I'm giving it a 3/5 for lack of dark mode and lack of an Old style dictionary. simple suggestions.i bought all the bells and whistles. Why is darkmode missing and a old school 1800s dictionary . Please add them asap. If this is gonna be the king dictionary it should have everything right ?!? Until then I have to use multiple apps for deep study's

  66. Alpha George-avatar

    Used for a long time. Ads have now become too intrusive. Removed.

  67. k2 roboto-avatar

    Dictionary by itself is OK but the advertisements are the pits. A full page advertisements which play music automatically. Who needs sound from advertisement by default? Always happen in the most awkward situations 🙄. Widget is poor. Trying to search a word normally takes you to word of the day!

  68. Adrian Lehmann-avatar

    Very informative content. I enjoy it almost daily (with the word of the day). However, for further reading of the provided articles about different word related topics the app just provides the blank text without formation for a more comfortable reading experience. I wished to have some more features implemented to ease reading articles.

  69. Ioannis Voumvourakis-avatar

    Ioannis Voumvourakis


    Their ads have become too obtrusive. It's totally understandable for a free app to show ads. But having them popping up quite often and requiring some seconds to elapse before discarding them is really annoying. In addition, it mostly gives you the option to hear the pronunciation of nouns and not adjectives, adverbs etc.

  70. Anthony Mwaura-avatar

    The widget on my phone is a month behind on word of the day. I have uninstalled the app, cleared up the cache, storage and installed the app again but it's still a month behind. Fix this. Please. The developer finally fixed it. Much appreciated and thank you for taking time to respond.

  71. Aaron Davis-avatar

    Wheres 'trending' gone? This allowed me to click on words that i was familiar with but didnt know the meaning of - majority of them i wouldnt of necessarily rememebered to search manually.

  72. Ritesh P-avatar

    Even though I purchased the dictionary app (which I assume is a premium version), I still see an option to buy dictionary premium app (instead of showing already purchased). Secondly, although the app is eligible for family purchase (if bought after 7 Feb 2016), I'm not able to see this app under family apps.

  73. Tvisha Desai-avatar

    I really like this app. But one thing I don't like about it is, I can't save the words which I favourite in some account and then even if I change my device and I've to install app again, I'll find those words back. I think that's a must have feature. Because that's going to help learn new words.

  74. Luis Miguel-avatar

    Wonderful! With many word entries according to concepts and contexts.

  75. Russeljrjs-avatar

    Cannot search for words when offline.. Offline option in this app is a total scam.. Useless Edit: Re-installed the app, bought the full version, have an excellent Internet connection. Still the app is giving errors in downloading offline dictionary.

  76. Trena Montoya-avatar

    Love it, need it, use it, try to look at it every day, some day's are hectic. Thank you

    I had this app for 2 years and I have deleted it today every time you have to watch an add take down the ads

  78. Josephine Agius-avatar

    Josephine Agius


    Informative. Words selected could be more in common use.

  79. Kai Chow-avatar

    Good, except I'd have given it a five star if it has a landscape orientation.

  80. D Blomgren-avatar

    I love the fact that when I open the app, the search space is blank and doesn't show the last word I looked for. However, I don't like that the app icon has a red 1 over it all the time. I have opened the app to see what the alert was for and can't find anything.

  81. Enya Crown-avatar

    It's fine for finding a word, or using the app as a catalog to store words you would like to reference. The word of the day is ridiculous...in theory it's great, but the Weds they choose are remedial and just plain silly (and useless). Also ads are annoying.

  82. Elena Rodríguez-avatar

    Elena Rodríguez


    I'm a paid subscriber on my other phone, I use it daily, I used to carry a paperback before the app, a must have tool for anybody who knows how to read.

  83. Stephen Langele-avatar

    Stephen Langele


    02/27/20- just read how the word of the day "bug" was quashed and nothing could be further from the truth. I got a notification today that the WotD was "vug", tapped on it to open and am shown yesterday's(26th) WotD, "corrigible" and when i tap on the widget? It shows me the WotD, "fettle", from Jan 27th!! I mean, C'MON.... Have cleared cache, forced close, reinstalled, and SSDD... Pretty sad they can't fix anything.

    Editing review: Latest build fixes the word-of-day date bug. Widget seems to work far better. However, still, please fix widget to be 5x1 on the Pixel 3. Oddly on my Samsung S2 tablet the widget claims only 5x1 whereas it's 5x2 on the Pixel. The latter doesn't need the additional vertical space.

    Very good app, the examples given to explain meaning of words are phenomenal. The phonetic syllabication, and guide to assist with the pronunciation of words are exceptional!

    I like the app. It gives good accurate definitions of words. I like the word a day feature to help expand my vocabulary as well. I do do like however that there is an expanded version that is for a charge. I think it should be free of charge.

    I chose this dictionary as it's the same one installed on my iPad. I wanted to upgrade to the medical dictionary but failed to do so, owed to a lack of instructions of how to execute the transaction w/ATM card.

    Nice app and easy to use one who want to build vocabulary also synonyms!!!

  92. Eileen Ball-avatar

    Easy to use and like that there is an option to pronounce the word

  93. Lyle Ivester-avatar

    This app is an excellent choice and is phenomenal at everything from definition to pronunciation as well as explaining the history of the word from its root on up.

    The only thing that stops me to rate 5 stars is that every time the adds appear, they usually have sound even if I have my phone on silence, sometimes it scares the shut out of me or I get caught during class, that's so embarrassing, please change that asap!

    The advertisements are obnoxious and too frequent. The synonyms list is not a true or full Thesaurus list of usage options. A rather useless app for what I need.... it's disappointing. Will be deleting from my phone.

    Wonderful! It can't get any better. I love the extent of information for each word & I can hear it if I'm not certain how to say it. And I love "the word of the day" everyday.

    Video ads for a dictionary just seems wrong, especially when they play at full volume when you're not expecting it. Please find alternate means for your ad revenue

    Please allow for us to turn off the sounds when the bots say the words for us. I accidentally pressed it while in the library and even though the volume in my phone is off, it still said the words out loud. Please consider this soon.

    Just one problem please give a detailed separate list for idioms and phrases so that we can learn it. I have just purchased idioms and phrases upgrade and would like to learn them all instead of searching them one by one.

    As a person who is trying learn English, especially words that I'm not familiar to use, I find this app is exceptional. I pay a little for the power pack and have no regrets. I love it 💕
