Many thanks to the developers for this app! It has everything I could have wanted from a dictionary, including a thesaurus and multiple vocabulary games. As a college student, this app is essential for me and I really appreciate how well it works. With that said, I absolutely LOVE the fact that I can get definitions and proper spelling right on my Watch. The fact that I dont have to reach for my phone or even a dictionary when working is fairly liberating. If you have an Apple Watch, this app is practically essential.

Good stuff

Easier than looking up words on a laptop or desktop computer.

Vocab vocab vocab

Incredible way to expand your vocabulary!


love this app fabulous

Reliably Consistent and Dependable

I have used this app for many years. It has replaced my lifelong use of the traditional hard-cover book format dictionary (although I still always keep one). Prior to this app I alway used the M&W dictionary at home, and taught my kids to always use a dictionary with schoolwork. Since using this app I have been allowed the same results but also instant access anywhere. Not once have I encountered a problem with the app and that says alot. In an age of over-abundant digitized products this is one of the very few sources that is actually a quality product. Thank you for all these years of consistent reliability.

Words are power!

Easy to use, easy to navigate and an extremely convenient tool I rely on almost daily!

Great app

Word games help the learning process. More than just a dictionary.
