Encountering issues with viewing your WOTD from the widget? We’ve got a fix for that! Update now to receive the newest release.
Definitions don’t work now
In the latest version, 220.127.116.11, you can’t even look up words now — the app just returns a blank white screen. I’m guessing the development team isn’t using any kind of automated testing. Numerous other bugs persist in every version; perhaps the team’s efforts are instead being spent on advancing their political beliefs through words of the day.
Sorry to hear of the trouble. Do you happen to be using the Offline Dictionary when experiencing this issue? If so, we can share that there is a known issue, and our team has been hard at work sorting out the problem with the offline dictionary not loading definitions. We anticipate a fix should be included in the coming App update, so please do keep an eye out in the App Store for updates.
We appreciate you sharing your perspective, and thanks for using our app.
Almost perfect dictionary
Really useful dictionary, easy to look up and contains plenty of difinitions and examples. Thank you, developers!
I really want it to have the history of words and expressions I looked up on it's dictionary, like that of a chinese dictionary 'Pleco'. Such a function would really help me to review what I studied already.
It already has star button to favorite any words but it's not good enough. It calls for me to tap the favorite button each time, and favorited words are ordered in the alphabetical order and not in chronological order.
Thanks for the kind review, and for taking the time to share your thoughts. We are always looking for ways to improve our user's experience. We will pass this along your suggestions along to our team, to consider in future updates. Thank you for using our app!
Full screen advert with sound and no offline function.
Please kill the full screen adverts. You play sound without even asking now. 0/5 for this app just for that. I don’t wanna delete it yet but I’m looking around for something to replace dictionary.com. You used to have the best dictionary online before. If you trick users into clicking a full screen advert and the advertisers are charged for the click you should have to give the money back to them. I don’t want apps like yours burning up my advertising budget.
