  • Super cool word games

    I use this app almost everyday and it’s really improved my vocabulary with the word of the day. Whenever I have to wait in lines or on public transit and don’t want to make eye contact with anyone, it also has fun word games that I can challenge myself with.

    👍 Unquestionably a stellar update. I've tried so many "dictionary" apps, this one is by far a premium issue. Bravo!

  • Going beyond a simple dictionary app

    Aside from being able to look up a definition for words, Merriam-Webster has allowed me to look up the history and hear the pronunciations. Even more fun are the quizzes and words of the day! Lesson learned: Never think you know all the words in the English Language! There’s always more!
  • From site to app - love it

    I have used m-w.com through my years of study, writing and learning. The App provides an even easier, thorough experience, translating the excitement of a dictionary into an app. Love it!
  • BEST dictionary app!!

    Love this app when I’m trying to think of a different way to describe something when I’m writing, or if I’m just plain stuck! The thesaurus is great, and the Word of the Day are actually mostly super interesting words that people really don’t use much anymore! My favourite app on my phone!💙 Don’t go changing dictionary😄💜
  • Most excellent

    A very helpful app. Besides providing definitions it makes learning new words fun with the games. I also enjoy learning about the origin of words, which can be found just under the definition. A great tool that is easy to use, educational, and fun!

    I find it very easy to use. I especially appreciate the “Recent” feature and the “Word if the Day”.

    Like the feature that I can review all the words I looked up earlier
  • I can’t believe that I went so long without it.

    I just love this little app <3 I use it almost daily, whether for spelling or pronunciation & of course for the definition of words that pop up time to time that i'm just stumped 🤔 on. a very useful aspect is that you can save 'favorite' words, which you can access later in a list sorted either alphabetically or by most recent for quick reference. 101% recommend ✔️ I don’t even have any qualms or dislikes about the app! & I also paid the $1.99 yearly fee (you can't beat that 😉) for no adds.
