    Has continued to help my vocabulary. Excellent
  • All I needed

    By Yetlie
    As an American who reads English novels and older English texts, as well as playing Scrabble with British English, this app perfectly suits my needs. I don't see any need for the premium version, but I might buy it at some point just because I want to support this endeavor.
  • It's gone to seed

    By 00dost
    It used to be a great app. Now, it's full of bright distracting colors, pop-ups, but no new functionality. Terrible..

    By psalm33:3
    Have been using this app for some time. It's handy and helpful. Thanks to the developers who continue to offer additional features.
  • This app is garbage and you shouldn't buy it

    By tml_mpls
    The original version was great. I actually spent the full $20+ to get the full version believing I was making a good investment and - embarrassingly - spent that again when I inexplicably lost access to the original purchase because I'd gotten such great use from the original. Probably should have seen that as the ominous sign it was and cut my losses, but so it goes. The new version feels like something designed by a child. I do NOT need to see a pop-up asking me to rate the app every time I need to look up a word. So now this is being deleted after 5+ years on the main screen of my phone. Posting this review in the hopes that someone learns from my mistakes. Stay away!
  • Awesome

    It's a great app. The only problem is that it asks you to go Premium all the time.

  • A useful tool - I turn to it often, but . . .

    By The Anti-theist
    I am impressed with the app. As the header says, I turn to it often. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star review is the fact that I have to buy it TWICE if I want it on my iPhone and on my iPad. That needs to be fixed. Especially when charging $19.99 for the app. I'm not certain this got sent previously, so I am adding that I am indeed willing to give the app a 5 STAR rating IF it is ever released in such a way that one down load and one payment of $19.99 secures it for use on BOTH my iPhone and my iPad. Other apps do this (that is what that + sign is all about, right?); why can this app not do it as well?
