Reviews From google play store

The one thing that is really frustrating is when searching for a word that is not in the database, a blank result (the same as a loading screen) comes up instead of saying that there is no result. I can't tell if the definition is still loading or if there is no result, and if there is no result, if it's because I've spelled the word wrong, or if I've used a spelling not recognised by the dictionary, or if the word itself is not recognised.


This app deserve 5 stars. But after I have updated it is working very slow. The word takes more than 5-6 seconds to load. Before update, it was quite quite good. And second thing there should be user login to save favourite words. Please roll back to previous update. We want the words to appear as fast as before it happened. If the issue is fixed, I will change it to 5 star


Very good app and I love it much, however, there's no backup to the words searched, at least make it possible to sign in to an account so that we have storage of the words we often search for. If you change to a new phone, you'll lose all your definitions and start from zero 🥺😭


This app is pretty good. Ironically or not, it's better to run it without data/Wi-Fi because the dictionary entries load much faster that way. I love that this works offline, but it's annoying that I have to turn off the internet to get it to load entries in a reasonable amount of time. I wish that the entries gave more detailed etymology information. I like that I can save words, although I haven't reviewed them yet to verify the saving works.


Yes, I gave it a four star rating. I never give anything a hundred percent. You never know when it could get better or worse. Ok, I don't remember when I installed this app, but it seems like everytime there is a up date, something changes in my phone. Like right now, if I want a spelling or how to pronounce a word, the dictionary takes forever to load...or I just give up waiting for it to load. By the way, do you have to count the spaces too? Reread the first paragraph, last word.


It's a really good app in my opinion. Everything works, besides for the audio, I couldn't hear the pronunciation when I pressed the button. But other than that, I would recommend! 😊


It's a very gorgeous app. This app is very useful as it tells us the meanings of every single word with correct pronunciation. Secondly if we want to pass our time so it is very useful. There are a lot of useful games which gives us a lot of knowledge. I sujjest you to download this app.


It's not bad all the time but it have that big issue which is when my internet connection is on it seems that connection makes that app holding back I don't know how I can describe what I face but this app is not bad and it has a working issue


It is very good dictionary. But still it needs some features like copy or search from other apps like wordweb, Notification toggle bar, notification for word of the day & organization of bookmars. So please add these features.


It is a really good application however it is slow. Recently whenever I search a word, it is just loading with a red circle in the middle of the page.


This dictionary is extremely useful. I find myself using it more and more. When I went to find a dictionary to study, there were very few free ones. After I downloaded this app, I saw that I had made a good selection. I highly recommend purchasing this dictionary for study, writing, or for leisure.


It's being helpful at anytime where we need. It's like basic component of life, specially horizon our vocabulary. Very thankful. But now a days it's not work please suggest how I am able to use again?


The one feature I most like of this dictionary app is that, each word I search for get appears sideby while searching for a new one.This gives an opportunity to learn and revise the previous searched words....So a good feature..highly appreciable..good work creator👍🏽


What's to say? Its a dictionary on my phone - extremely useful to look up the meaning, usage, spelling, or alternatives for a word as soon as it is encountered. I use this almost daily.


Good for learning, records search history, has games to engage your curiosity in learning, with other features, and it's easy to use. I Recomend it .


Its easy for me to define words by just typing it down and then search instead of turning pages one by one in the dictionary book. Moreover, it trully helped me learned the words faster in a simple by looking at the examples below.. I love it sm


DEAR, I purchased your dictionary’s premium version but, right after I applied for refund because it wont show pictures as you mentioned in your app’s description. But I don’t received refund amount also but it doesn’t appear in my purchase history on google. Please rectify and sort-out this issue.


I tried several similar apps but this is by far the best one. No unnecessary options and features and at the same time it gives accurate translation


Up until this last update the app worked perfectly, now it drags on as if there is a connection issue. I shouldn't have to turn my data off for the app to work properly. If the free app doesnt work why purchase it. Another good app destroyed.....


I have been very diligent while looking for words not depending on merriam webster. I chose many sources but ultimately would find it a greatest dictionary in the form of application. I love it but the only problem it does not connect to internet to find pronunciation.


I can assure you that it is authentically worth reliable to my study. I bet the app developer should make audio part available when turn offline. Hay developer, your effort worths helpful. Thanks


I dont know why but its suuuuuper slow. I have updated it, reinstalled, but every time I look up a word, itntakes forever or none at all. I used to love and always use this dictionary app. I hope it improves.


Great app with extras that are very useful and fun! Highly recommend especiallyif you are looking to expand vocabulary using the integrated Thesaurus.


This dictionary has turned out to be a very useful resource for me. Besides the on-point and easy-to-understand definitions, the use of the word in sentences as examples helps me know exactly how to use the word.


I just found the definitions of two words on your website but conducting a search for those same two words using this app came up with no results. On the plus side, this app is free and can be used offline.


Great app for learning definitions and origins of newly discovered words for people. It also has a few educational options besides searching up words.


When data is on then no words open in dictionary and when data is off it opens quickly but cant listen pronunciation. To listen pronunciation have to open data and then not spell the word... Whats the proble how to slove this.. help me.. i have uninstall and re install app again but still same problem


Why isn't there a functionality to login and get saved words like on the website? Too bad, the website was excellent but without the possibility to login, it loses all its taste.


Great! This is a very good app, and much can be unearthed from it infinite store of words.


I would have rated it 5 star but since the last month I'm unable to hear the pronunciations. I updated to the latest version, uninstalled and then reinstalled but the problem didn't fix.


This app worked fine until you added this game update. Now it requires more memory and doesn't work even when I put it in my external memory. I am going to have to uninstall this app and get something better.


I recommend this app. But I do have a issue with it , it don't support split screen mode.


Too much of unnecessary ads wasting ones data. To remove ads in their settings, one will even have to be subscribing for this with certain amount. Besides, the expected features were not even included. Below expectation!


Great app. Can be a bit slow at times, which is frustrating. Otherwise it's what I need.


The dictionary is excellent. It's helping tremendously to improve my vocabulary by giving easy and great definitions.


Amazing app! No alternative. Its image quality, whole definition, *word of the day * and games make it a great app. Thanks Merriam Webster!


App is wonderful for English learners. It works excellent offline but during connected to net ads other disturb a lot. It is for for offline but not suitable to study online.


Just plain excellent! I have tried others. They were hard to use. This has efficacy and accuracy. Thank you! Alan


Voice search not working now for some reason. Other then that it's good.


Multi-ads make me I'll. The hell is that whenever you open ads will try to take the display. Cadswallops.


Utterly incomprehensive, missing many common words. Recently looked up "doxxing" and "agogic" and it has neither. The last straw(s). Uninstalling.


Uninstalling, too many ads pop up while watching a movie or reading a book, other wise this is very useful to me.


During the intial years it was good...But day by day it became defunct of its functions. It now takes a lot of time of uploading the meaning of word!


I love the audio feature and the word of the day. Very good app.


Good but needs some tweaking. Takes way too long to load a definition


Everything is great EXCEPT a glaring problem: definitions will not load. Word of the day is awesome, word games are great...definitions in a dictionary app are indispensable.


Comes in handy. It's a quick lookup resource for English language.


Superb except too much ads which they should reduce to some extent. Otherwise everything upto the mark


I enjoy this app but not for one thing, no word pronoucement when offline!!!!! DEVELOPER, i will REALLY REALLY appreciate word PRONOUNCEMENT when off line


Very good dictionary app. Works offline as well as online. But it works faster when offline.


Very useful App, it gives phonetic of every word I searched for, that makes it very great


Because of your hunger from ads some definitions take an infinite amount of time to load due to definition and advertisement loading conflict.


Really helpful and better app than the Oxford dictionary's app and also good for learning American English.


It's great app. But it loads too Long after the latest update which worked smoother in previous version.


Merriam-Webster App is an inseparable part of my smartphone and it's my most used app. A must for every language aficionado.


Too slow. Sometimes doesn't open up for a dictionary lookup word


This is fantastic! It's also have thesaurus which I really need to do my assignment! Maybe this apps can add another option yo translate the word to other languages


This app has gotten to where a word search will not download. It just keeps trying to load the answer, please help


I have done payment to remove ads but it is still showing me ads. Either correct this glitch or give me my money back.


It would be better if it contain backup of search history and favorite words.


It is an amazing platform to learn conducively about basics of English.


After update pronounciation icon is not working. It has very much lag.


It's totally nice with so many words and i also fell in love with the thesaurus. Thanks to the developer of this app


Its such a good dictionay fast and easy to handle.the only defect i found was that i doesnt show transcription of words


I am using this app from 3 years, but from last update this app is not working well as compared to past experience .. So please fix its bugs.......


Very useful and educational. The games are very great.


I do not have a broad vocabulary so this app is very useful and certainly helpful!!


The best dictionary, even has no internet still works,but the thing is it is only english.😅


very nice app, with vocabulary game kills my boredom times. thanks :)


Very handy, useful and reliable applications.


Pronunciation button isn't working. It keeps loading infinitely.


Good dictionary for learning and progressing in English.


Best dictionary app! But here's a suggestion: maybe consider adding a section for rhymes too. 😊


Excellent app for understanding clear and different meaning of a word


Awesome always help me of learning and relearning very useful.


This is the best dictionary I have found. Gives more detailed definitions than the Oxford's and gives the pronounciations if you need.


Excellent And Best Offline Professional Dictionary Ever 😍😍😍 . Keep It Up Always👌👌👌


Great update! Love the games and word of the day 😊


Excellent dictionary, very comfortable and user friendly


Good app, but often very slow to load definitions.


Very very easy to find the words I'm searching for. Definitions great


This app stop working on my phone..keep loading but nothing comes out


The second I became aware this was an America developed application. Sorry it had to go! Had I been able to find the real langue of English in settings we would have had a chance. Sorry, what language is American?


Great apo...but the pronunciation doesn't work anymore


It's a very useful and comprehensive I LOVE it, thanks Merriam


I find every thing that I need. Excellent Dictionary.


Very very nice app... Every literature students must have it.... Really wonderful app...


Its too slow..it takes so much time to show a meaning of word


Easy to use, helpful spelling hints, excellent word descriptions

Good definitions and easy to use.


A dictionary with full detail of every word. Easily understandable


It's really helpful specially when my friends says or chat's unfamiliar words


It takes 2 to 3 min to open meaning of searched word.


Have been using this Dictionary for over 3 years now All I can say is that It's an Amazing app and the best Dictionary I have seen on Play store..


It takes too much time to load a single word!


Definitions won't load. It just says loading ..
