Great app for the person always looking for just the right word.
Wouldn't be without it!
Great app. Very simple and helpful.
This is the best dictionary app out there. Buy it!
Easy to use and special effects like voice, and Word of the Day. Keeps track of your history, so you can go back. Has had bugs in the past, but I'm very happy with this now! Note: I haven't updated this app yet...
Very useful and handy.. LOVE IT !
I use this app all the time.
Progress is usually a wonderful thing, but in some things it can be very damaging. Vocabulary and spelling seems to be so trivial in the scheme of things in today's world. When was the last time you read an article or letter that a writer made an effort to use proper grammar and spelling? Is this the writers fault. Maybe or maybe not. Today, it just appears as if it's not important. Dictionary.com is a great application and is trying to help all of us to improve ourselves. I certainly need all the help I can get.
I gave u 5 stars cuz your site is awsome
I love this dictionary! It is easy to use. I enjoy accessing the pronunciation if the words!
Love having a dictionary right where I need it! As easy as this is, I hope we will still have books on the super info highway!!
I love this app! I enjoy learning new words and having a dictionary in the palm of my hand!
Love having this app right at my fingertips! Including things like word origins.
This is a high quality app. It has some very nice features. Student of Linguists at the University of Oklahoma.
I've found this app, and its optional add ins, very useful.
Love they Word-of-the-Day feature!
I can't live with out it, I'm learning new words every day, and also I learn how to pronounce them as well as spell them, you'll be surprise at what this app has to offer . I Luv It.
The thesaurus seems no better than average! Some of the synonyms don't even seem to apply. I have googled and found better words, however if you need a quick app this is the one.
Excellent app! It's like having an entire dictionary and thesaurus in your pocket! I like the feature that allows you to hear the pronunciation of words.
This app works terribly without wifi connection. I can't access the search field because it keeps jumping from one "network is required" to another, without the ability to reach search screen again.
Hate the interruptions asking me if I love the app. It's a dictionary!
it doesnt work offline
This app is one of the most important ones on my phone. And it worked perfectly until it was overhauled. Now the word origins require the internet. The primary thing that makes this app superior to Other dictionaries is it's offline access. ( I read and contemplate words most frequently in the subway). I will return my review to the five stars the app should be getting when this massive blunder is corrected.
pretty reliable. useful app
I love this app, every time I come across words I don't know, a dictionary is at my finger tips. Word of the day is also nice feature, I try to keep up with it most of the time
The inability to defeat the Word of the Day feature that delays access to word entry is telling of this app - very poor quality and performance.
Love the word of the day. This is definitely my go to tool for fun with words.
I can only say. I LOVE IT!
A GREAT dictionary and thesaurus, and a very easy to use app that has tons of features! I LOVE checking the "Word of the Day"!
Great app! I pull it up whenever I need it, wherever I need it
Love this app
Good apple app for translation Look is good especial version without adv Thank you app Waiting a new update
I use this app almost daily. It helps me overcome my ability to confuse spell-check, makes me sure of proper word usage, increases my vocabulary with word of the day, and has never crashed!
I use this one even thought, I paid for another one. A lot of words. You can see the history too to recall and learn the new words. I love this one.
I reach for this App whenever I come across a word I don't know. Rarely, if ever, has it failed me.
No problems everything is good could not ask for more.
Great help anytime !
I use it to fill letters to my son in jail, he also enjoys it. I write twice a week and the letter that goes out on Sunday is all from your app and one other that also has quotes and word puzzles.
Like the word of the day, ease of use, and ability to hear the proper pronunciation of the words. I had a little trouble with the app a while ago shutting down when I tried to open it, but appears to be fixed. No other issues before or since.
This app just keeps getting better. I had several dictionary apps, some more expensive than this one, and this is the best one. I have since deleted all of them but this one. I just wish I found this one first. I use it every day, several times a day. Love it!
This is the best one if ever used
I love this app! It helps me a lot with my School.
Nice apps. Very useful, lots of extra.
With all the additions, quite costly by app standards. More interesting than the Merriam Webster app.
I use this app every single day. As a kid, I read the dictionary when I could. As an adult, dictionary.com is always available. Best dictionary app!!
Love using this app every time I have a word question. Fast.
Love the word of the day push!
The messages feature keys an alert number on the app icon, but when I select a message to read the app just gives a blank screen or shows the last searched word. Needs text sizing This is a very nice app but this app needs the font size to be user adjustable.
I use it everyday for everything. The most useful app not only for school but for life!
One of my most used apps!
The interface is way too distracting. Too much in your face. It makes me long for the old-fashioned books that present what you're looking for without screaming at you.
Great app. Except for not being able to automatically rotate to portrait if locked in landscape. You have to close it down and restart it after switching to portrait. It would be a 5 star app if they could figure this out.
Great interface, great features, and I love being able to tweet definitions. Definite download.
it's such a fantastic tool
Has truly helped. It's needed by everyone. A welcome app. Even better as a mobile app. No big clunky books to haul around. Get it folks!!!! NOW!!!!!!!
Great app if you love words - its not just a dictionary. Love the Spanish words too!
This is a basic must have app!
As far as dictionary apps go, this one is by far the most prodigious. I use it regularly and it is an invaluable resource for today's modern student of English language and literary studies. My middle school language arts students love this app!
I love having dictionary.com at my fingertips even when I can't get a wifi signal.
Smart, fast, easy, helpful.
I find myself opening my trusted dictionary app at least once a day.... Great app.
I use Dictionary a few times each week to make my writing more precise. I rely on it!
I just find it really aggravating that after paying full price for this app (that I do love and use daily) I have to pay an extra fee to use their voice search. But actually I just realized while typing this that I can just use the voice search on my keypad lol. But still shame on this dictionary app for being money hungry! Seriously if I was to buy all their extra features I would be broke.
This is a very handy application. I use it all the time.
I am an avid reader do this dictionary is of great importance to me. The fact alone that is has the voice feature is worth 5 stars. Thesaurus, example sentences and the option to save favorites is well worth what I paid for it. The only thing I would add is the ability to somehow intergrade it into the iBook app or make it more easily accessible while using multiple readers.
Translator is s**t, needs serious work, see e.g. Google
Words are great. This app is great.
A must have for the iPhone. I use it on a daily basis.
I like the word of the day in my notifications but can I have the definition too instead of having to open the app?
Great app, love the word of the day!
Love the completeness and organization especially the list of prior lookups. It reinforces memory by forcing you to recall.
One of my top 5 apps.
I use this dictionary all the time it's the best.
I've tried a few dictionary apps, and this is the best I've found. For someone who likes to look up words independent of working on a note, it's convenient to have a standalone app, and the dictionary is larger than the others I've tried. The GUI and stability issues of past versions seem to have been resolved now with a more native interface. My one complaint is that one needs a network connection to view etymologies, but that's usually not an issue. Overall, this is the dictionary to have.
Paper dictionaries cannot pronounce the word for you! Love being a click away from the thesaurus. A writer's best friend!
I really appreciate the app it has bailed me out many times...That said I used to be a premium customer, but can no longer justify the current cost @ $40.00 per/yr.
I have purchased all the In-App extension. But I expect that there should NOT be any further payment expected beyond this.
Use it all the time when reading & need definition. Also just for individual words meanings & pronunciation. Great book.
My wife and I were high school sweethearts. But our understanding of words is different. She won't believe me until I reference dictionary.com.
Please don't bug me to rate, otherwise 5 stars.
Love the Word of the Day feature!
An English major's idea of fun! DD
I'm smart now! Hahah
Provides a simple, painless way to insert additional words and their understanding into your vocabulary
I really like the app because it allows me to look up words, meaning and it also has a thesaurus. Also, for a non-native English speaker is good to have the pronunciation. Although, the only down side is that it does not include verb tense. That would be really helpful, specially for irregular verbs.
I use this app multiple times every day. It is indispensable.
New update now puts Word of the Day on the opening screen. Don't like that. If want it, I will find it. Mostly I want to look up my word! What am I doing wrong?
Very handy to have on my desktop, and phone! Really appreciate the audio pronunciation of words. This would also be a great app for students as well.
I use this and the companion thesaurus daily. We all know the concept of the dictionary, but this is simple to use and reasonably comprehensive. I've had it well over a year and have never run into technical glitches. I like the pronunciation function that says the word if I don't know the proper pronunciation.
Great daily enjoyment. I hate to miss a day, but I can always go back. I haven't become familiar with all the new features such as the Thesaurus , but that will come in time. The additional dictionaries are very useful.
I have been a dictionary user since release, and this is one app that has gotten better with age. While it would be nice if they put out specials where you can buy all of its (very useful) DLC into one affordable package, it still is worth every penny. Even if you didn't purchase any DLC, you are getting a robust app that outstrips other dictionary apps. And what I like about the DLC is that you just buy what you need. But each DLC makes very significant and positive additions to the app, so it is, at least, worth looking in to. To sum up: A great app that keeps getting better. You don't have to buy any DLC for this to be a great app, but the DLC is worthwhile as well. Enjoy.
