  • Nice app

    By marinemother

  • Can you say annoying??

    By Shebaac
    This used to be a good app but now ads pop up every few seconds and you can’t read what you are trying to get.....definitions, etc. SO ANNOYING! I just deleted from my phone. Bye!!
  • Intrusive

    By shikawgo
    The amount of ads (and what you need to pay to get rid of them) and all the additional purchases that one needs to make in order to have a fully realized dictionary app is very annoying. I’ve used this as my go to dictionary app but I’m just sick and tired of the nickel and dime ways in which they try to get more and more money out of you to make it a worthwhile dictionary app. It’s good but annoying. I’ll be looking for another one. Good riddance.
  • Homework help

    Your ads
  • Deleting due to ad obtrusiveness

    By Mondoniko
    I was just in a quiet meeting at work, went to look up a word, and up pops a glaringly LOUD video ad. It was embarrassing. I understand that you developers have to make a living. I was okay with the other lesser ads, which I’d occasionally click on, just to help you all out. But you’ve gone too far! I will be deleting this app & trying the Miriam Webster one. I won’t be back.
  • Recent update (ADS) ruined 5 Star Review

    By Coya1234
    I've used this app for years and loved it, until the most recent update. The addition of ads are obnoxious and ridiculous. It inhibits the effectiveness of the app and is heavily distracting. Wasn't there another way? Please brainstorm a way of using ads that is less obnoxious than randomly popping up - WITH SOUND - while I am trying to look up a simple definition. Considering deleting and going back to a classic google search. 🤷🏾‍♀️
  • Annoying pop up ads

    By Kpob4
    I used to love this app. Used it all the time and now almost as soon as you open it up, bam full screen ads. Might be looking for a new dictionary app unless they fix it.
  • Please mute the commercials!!!!!!!!

    By Hanzhaq
    What the heck! My phone is on vibration. And suddenly an ad show up and playing so loudly! Have to KILL the app to stop the sound
  • Loud, Obnoxious Ads

    By BenedettaL
    I have been using this app for several years & it was a favorite. However it now plays loud annoying ads whenever I look up a word. I am deleting it & will find a quieter dictionary app
