    I use this app all the time. It is great. I use it not simply to check words but actively when writing. Only good things to say!!!

    I like the dictionary but the app crashes quite often.
  • I’d like better access to the word of the day archives

    I had been using the Merriam Webster website for a long time, but finally decided to switch to the app since it is easier to use from my phone. I would absolutely love it and would give it a 5 star review if it made accessing the word of the day archives a little easier. I can’t find an easy way to search them. I miss having the link right there when I look a word up in the dictionary (if there is one) like it is on the webpage.
  • Love the app almost as much as I love words.

    I use the dictionary app everyday. It makes looking for correct spellings and usage quick and easy even when I struggle with pronunciation. Word of the day is a must see. We, my patients and I, use the word games to challenge our wordsmith skill(s) and to laugh at our abysmal scores. If you could only balance my checkbook.

    No words like “granoblastic”, “peristeronic” etc. Waste of money for me

  • Word of the day.

    I continue to use this dictionary app for a word is the day. Decades ago, while still a lad( name given to all boys in an Irish catholic school), I was instructed to learn a word a day due persistence of the nuns who were our angelic teachers. The best advise ever given.
