    Word of the day presents simple every day words. Definitions are extremely simplistic. The hardback version of this dictionary is wonderful. The app is poorly done.

  • If you want pure, unadulterated English, there is no better choice.

    Want the best dictionary of true English? I do. And I’ve been born, raised, and retired in New England these sixty five years. Enough said.

    Interfering with the usability of the app to relentlessly exhort for a 5 star review effectively guarantees that I will never give one.
  • Pretty good, but need more detailed descriptions and sample sentences.
