Extraordinary App! Simply awesome

The Free Dictionary is an app with true style!. Not only is it beautiful to look at, it's well thought out and very user friendly. The developers truly put some thought into this one! It's truly not just a dictionary. The quotes, articles, word games, even horoscope, all make it fun!. If you are like me, you know you need help in spelling and your vocabulary but you just can't seem to take the time or want to make the effort. This app will change all of that! I truly use it everyday!. And the articles, games, etc those too I use everyday. I have had both the free and the Pro versions. I travel a lot so am often without internet or unable to communicate in a foreign language. The Pro app takes care of that!. Thank you Developers for an amazing app!. There is a good reason this app has mainly five stars!. You will not be sorry with this amazing app!

So far, so good!

I downloaded this app today based on the 4 & 5 star reviews posted. So far, it looks promising. It’s too bad the annoying pop-up asked me to rate and review it even though I have not had nearly enough time to discover all of the features! Hopefully, it won’t prompt me again. Ever. Maybe this was a clever way to get a good review before I’ve had time to form an opinion (NOT!). Anyway😊, after an hour of use, it appears to be a fairly comprehensive dictionary and thesaurus. Personally, I can do without all of the extra bells and whistles but, thankfully, the developers were thoughtful enough to give us customization options in Settings. I really like the offline dictionary feature and I may end up liking certain others when I have had a chance to review them. I subtracted 1 star simply due to the rate/review pop-up appearing as I was in the middle of reading the results of a search and this was only an hour after downloading the app. One suggestion: offer a “bundle” price point since there are so many different products in the line. Final thought: IMHO, it’s worth the 4 bucks. 👍

Uncommonly good

I used to work as an editor and have something of a fetish for dictionaries. The two highest compliments I can pay to any dictionary — either electronic or dead tree — are these: (1) I use it multiple times per day, and (2) I find myself browsing for the pure fun of it. (Fellow dictionary lovers will know what I mean.) Farlex's wins on both counts. Comprehensive, compiled from reliable sources (e.g. Webster's, Roget's), quick and simple interface — already these set it apart from many others. In addition, it provides accurate etymologies, a generous thesaurus, a fine assortment of dictionaries in other languages, and surprisingly good translations. The offline mode is particularly welcome. I haven't explored its many other features, but these are enough to set it apart. Not only is this the best dictionary app I've ever tried, it's one of the most useful reference apps of any kind. Full marks!
