Great dictionary

Everything has been great so far, except favorites are not synced to web saved words, I hope developers can make this feature then I can read saved words on both web and mobile app.

Great dictionary with clear definitions

What I like the best about this dictionary is that the definitions are so clear and easy to understand.

I also really like that it is not cluttered with a bunch of grammatical info, synonyms, etc.

Best Learner’s dictionary

I own an educational website. After extensive search this is the only great Learner’s dictionary. Great for students! It has mechanical glitches such as audio pronunciation. But it is still the most useful and easy.
