A Thank You to WordHippo

I would like to thank WordHippo and the staff, that has made it exist! I work as an author online, and there has never been a chapter where I did not use this website/app!

For lengthy years of my life, I’ve had to stray through unreliable and iffy thesauruses, but when I found WordHippo, it was like a heaven of words, all in one! This has been the fifth year in a row, where I consistently use this website, and I will never stray away from it! My fans of my stories always praise me for my fantastic vocabulary, thanks to WordHippo. Therefore, my loyalty lies with WordHippo, because it is simple to use, never takes forever to load, and always comes up with the precise word that I need! In fact, I’m even using it right now to write this review!

If there’s anything that I need to say about improving WordHippo, then I wouldn’t have too many opinions, but I would say that I dislike the new buttons on 2019, where at the bottom of each section of words, they say to click for more words. I prefer the old method, where it was just all in one, and I wouldn’t mind scrolling more or hitting the down key more on my keyboard, and see all the choices of words that I have, rather than forgetting to use the brown button that’ll give me more words.

Otherwise, thank you so much for making my experience with WordHippo. It means a lot to me that you I can give someone an amazing experience with words!

I like this app. I started using it a long time ago on the web, and have grown rather fond of it while translating Mandarin Chinese text to/from English for my Immersion classes. It is also useful because I am an aspiring writer. This app provides translations to Latin, definitions of words, and creative words to use in place of others, and so allows me to free up my narration and supply my readers (mostly just friends and family at this point 😁) with a more unique and alluring sound. I highly recommend this application.

I have no problems with this app, only a few suggestions, the first being; on the translate feature in this app, it would be really nice if we could “heart” or “favorite” languages so that they stay at the top of the list of languages, ready for use. (So yeah, this suggestion is mostly here in this review because I’m lazy 😏. )
The second suggestion (and last) is: could you please add a “Names” feature? I can never come up with names for characters. It would be really nice if you could.

Overall, this is an excellent app. I enjoy using it and have benefitted from it in the short time that I have had it. I highly recommend it for everyone and anyone who is interested in this app.

Essential for Communication

I’m 62 years old. I have been an avid reader and writer my entire life. And I’ve been finding it increasingly difficult to remember proper names (of people, films, books, places,) as well as that elusive “right word” to describe what I’m feeling or thinking.
Hippo is my go-to application for help with that last bit. It works for everything except those annoying moments when you “just know the name of that song” (Shazam,) or for when the person approaching you is smiling and you just can’t remember his/her name but it’s on the tip of your tongue (some AR application that has yet to be invented?)
Hippo is more than a thesaurus. It’s a way to express myself more «aptly» (now THAT was a “Hippo” moment.)
