  • What would I do without this App

    Although I find the app useful, how about providing the “word of the day” when received by notification, also available when looking up the word. Usually don’t receive the new word definition until much later in the day. By
  • Unable to restore my purchases

    By Madanmishra
    I buy this apps almost two years ago and I upgraded my phone. Now I’m not able to restore the purchase. It’s say it’s for lifetime but now I see ads all the time.
  • Poor customer service!!

    By Taverasme
    I would give them zero starts if I could. I purchased this app in 2012 and in 2013 I paid for the in app purchases that removed adds and allowed offline use. Recently the app stopped working offline so I attempted to download the previous purchase but the app said it found no prior purchase history under my account. I went into my Apple account and found all the related purchase and contacted the developer via their site dictionary.com but never received a response after two attempts and 4 weeks of waiting. The app worked great as intended but now that I cannot access offline content even though I paid for the feature, I am very displeased with this developer and their lack of service.
  • Love it, please add custom quizzes!

    By therealkarenl
    The app works great, as do the widgets! There are words that I favorite to go back and review. I would like to have a quiz option for the words I favorited. I also think creating our own quizzes or having topic quizzes would help with learning and studying (e.g. SAT and GRE).
  • Word of the day

    By quadonkdonk
    Squee is a noun unless you include something about it being an onomatopoeia. To squee or squeal is a verb which you have put as the definition of squee.
  • Favorite words review

    By ScopedSearch
    ———- There is no easy word to review favorite words one after another. It requires 3-4 clicks and moving back and forth to look at the words in the favorites. I consider it a significant flow in the design. It needs to be addressed for regular repeated visits and wider adoption. The app makers should also introduce different fields specific (yoga, sports, marketing, finance, politics, types of entertainments / adventures etc.) dictionaries so that people can learn about those are and be more conversant about those. In that feature, the app makers should also allow users to introduce words / acronyms used in those fields so that the stack grows faster and stays relevant to the changes in those fields. ————— Update: I changed my phone and downloaded the app again. Interestingly it’s asking me to buy the power pack again. I find it quite unprofessional. How is iOS allowing you to do so. Nevertheless, can you tell me how to fix it?
  • Purchase trouble

    By shhpr82
    I am writing to complain about impossible to purchase from Iran. I utilize your website from Safari browser frequently and I greatly appreciate that. Moreover, operating your app is absolutely untroublesome and accessible. Due to warm-hearted USA people do not require special app upgrades such as grammar tips, I would be pleased if you eliminate Iran from your restriction countries. Praising you in advance for your time and consideration.
  • Perpetuates Hate Speech

    By Bu22erBee
    I really enjoy and rely on this app, but this morning I discovered something very distasteful.... In looking for synonyms for ‘greedy’ the word ‘niggardly’ was suggested. I hope that dictionary.com removes this.
