  • Grateful to the TEAM @Dictionary.com

    By Gregstew
    When I was growing up (still growing) my Mom bought us two jumbo size printed dictionaries as part of an encyclopedia set. Today I have much more than that, in my pocket, on my desk...that pronounces words. And it's free!! Are you kidding? The ads are actually useful sometimes, now that I notice them 😊 Thank you!! Thank you! Thank you!! 😊🥂
  • Wrong Year in Fourscore Quote

    By 2 Bonez
    Got the year wrong in your word of the day quote. Should be 1863.
  • So so anymore

    By Shakey1AA
    My old write up still holds but this app does have a political left wing agenda. Examples of words in sentences don’t need to be quotes from marxists/ communists and socialists. Like public schools it push’s an agenda slanted to the left side. I bought that agenda before I entered the real world and I later learned that my father wasn’t as dumb as I thought he was.
  • Buy the upgrade

    By LAX20531
    I’m not experiencing any intrusive ads but do come across an occasional cross-reference problem where a word will not be properly linked. Some people are impossible to satisfy: complaining about ads when the developer offers an ad-free version. The choice is yours. What isn’t an option is this notion of entitlement that companies should provide free stuff. Try working for free and see how long you’ll survive without a sustainable source of income.
  • low quality and unacceptable

    By music 66?
    I decided to download this app on my iPad pro but when I opened the app there was a tiny screen the rest surrounded by black. How could this be even seen as acceptable it couldn’t even fill the whole screen! So I figured it was a bug with the orientation so I tried to move it to the landscape view but that didn’t work either. Instead it stayed in portrait mode so the view was sideways. Afterwards I decided to just search up a word but the ads were unbearable seriously if I wanted an advertisement app I wouldn’t have downloaded this. And don’t even get me started on the missing definitions and words. For those who are looking for a better dictionary app I recommend Merriam Webster it allows you to remove ads, it’s better quality,and has more words and definitions. Hope this was helpful
  • I’m sick of the pop ups

    By mi kcis
    I’m predicting the end of this website because it will be infected by the sickness by users who are sick of the pop ups just like I am.
  • Garbage leftist propaganda

    By Elmachete1882
    Used to love this app up until it got taken over by the PC extreme left BS. Had to delete it.
  • Not the place for social sides

    By JELThomas
    Gender and sex mean the same thing Gender is not fluid. Y’all need to stop pushing the far left lgbtq agenda and leave the original definitions alone. Otherwise the app is great
