I love this app. Between the pictorial interface and the large text, LookUp is welcoming and accessible, especially for someone like myself who is visually impaired.

RECOMMENDATION: I appreciate the audio pronunciation feature and would love to have the entire definition read to me in this manner.

This App is THE dogs dangley's!!!

"Smile to Like" I love this feature, this is a sign of things to come in the tech world, facial expressions to control your phone. Freakin' Awesome!

What isn't there to smile about?

It's the first app I've known that has facial recognition features. Unless someone can tell me any different.

Great Looking App

Love this app. Used to have a few dictionary apps but this one looks the best and the words of the day are great also.
Would actually not mind having the ability to receive a notification of the word of the day too. Would be a nice addition.
