    Please bring back the “Back” arrow when viewing definitions of words in the Favorites list. Ever since the update, I must go through the menu to return. Also, it’d be wonderful if there was a way to export the Favorites list.

    It's a dictionary! How interesting can it be? Well, readers, aspiring writers (like myself) and diction buffs love the resourcefulness, word of the day provisions and Vocabulary games conveniently available. I wish when I switched my iPhones my favorite words (data) could be saved and transferred but I had to start all over.
  • Way too many ads including popups

    I understand that I need to tolerate ads in order to have a "free" app, but this app presents an offensive quantity and quality of ads.
  • Phenomenal

    Outstandingly superior dictionary app. One thing that would be helpful is a homonym section, or feature, rather. I use this every day. So wonderfully simple and spectacular.
