Ratings and Reviews
Thank you so much for this free dictionary !
It’s up-to-date. It covers all kinds of words across all subjects like even technical words in science or geography which are usually skipped in an Oxford dictionary and the best part is we can refer to Wikipedia or other apps also for reference through this dictionary app.
I regularly use it and it has helped me so much in my studies as well as my general daily life. I highly recommend it to everybody.
First of all, thank you for a free app that is so good. The Interface is very simple yet perfect for a dictionary. I found 99% words which I looked for. The most Important thing is the app is completely Ad-free and Infact there is not even option for Incoming Notifications. The Search option is so so handy to find the Exact Word. The only thing which is missing is WORD OF THE DAY option. Rest it is absolutely Inch-Perfect. Thank you so so much 👍👍
The voice for audio pronunciations has suddenly/automatically changed from female to male voice. Is there any way to switch back to the previous voice?
