App Reviews

  • Merrimack-Webster

    By Lion(s) & two cubs
    This dictionary & thesaurus is really very helpful and useful if you’re searching for a word, definition or synonym and need to do some research on it to find just the right word. I would certainly give the app five stars.

  • Love the pronunciation audio clip

    By AYMiner
    Word of the Day is a fun feature of this app. I use the favorites list to reinforce new words I’m trying to remember and the audio clip helps us all to not look the fool when using unfamiliar words.
  • Needs Improvement

    By Badger412
    Not 100% satisfied due to the fact that the speak to search does not work. Other wise it is a helpful app.
  • Cheaper than the book!

    By Jim Winner
    I have used this app free for 5 years, or more. The price for no adds, and to get the whole works, is just too cheap to pass up. It is much better than all of the other dictionaries or thesaurus’ I have used. The free version doesn’t even have as many adds as other do. Great work.
  • Love it

    By AuthenticBayAreaFan
    I love this app.
  • Voice search broken

    By zw425
    Voice search hasn't been working for a while Tried to update to the latest version but problem still not fixed.
  • Almost perfect

    By HNN 1464
    I like the simplicity of the interface. Very snappy.
  • Great dictionary

    By mpdcib
    I’ve used it mainly to look up word in crossword puzzle and the definition are great but lately I’ve use it more in my everyday work environment.
  • Latest version dropped a 5 to a 1

    By Bob(Swede)
    Used to love it. This version seems more like a grade school version on the actual definitions... lots of add on that some people might like.. word of the day, games, etc... But as a dictionary it has significantly slipped.
