Ratings and Reviews
The only dictionary you’ll ever need!
Working offline, Wordweb is wonderful. It doesn’t have a shortage of words, definitions, antonyms and anything else you can think of. It’s easy to use, informative and useful— we even use it for school work! I highly recommend this app, great work guys!!
The best dictionary app
I have tried many dictionary apps.
This one is outstanding.
So impressive and so user-friendly.
Just a slight problem
Since the latest update iOS 13.0, the previous word isn’t being cleared away.
Usually when you close the app down and open it back up for another word search- the previous word has gone and is clear to type the new word in.
Lately the old word is still there.
Please fix. Thanks 🌺
