2018 updated dictionary with new words!
Ratings and Reviews
I'm a tournament player and it's nice to have access to the tournament mode section where you can see all playable words.
Request: I would love to see a section (one for filtered mode and another for tournament mode) where you can only see the 5,000 new words. This would make it much easier for study purposes.
Great job with this!
Perfect for checking words while playing Scrabble
This is the dictionary I use when I want to see if a word that has been played is indeed a word. I simply type it into the lookup bar and it tells me immediately if it’s a word or not. If it is, I can then easily go to it’s definition. Now that Merrimack Webster has put out a sixth edition I had to purchase the Kindle version. And it’s awful. It takes way too long to find a word. Please please please update this app soon. I paid $10 for the Kindle dictionary. I’d gladly pay you for the app which is so much more suited to my needs.
UI/UX mistakes, lacking features
As a former tournament player and current club player, I have had a lot of experience with different dictionary and study apps.
There are a number of notable user interface and/or user experience mistakes in this app. The biggest being the use of an alpha-ordered soft keyboard instead of the far more common and, now, far more natural QWERTY layout. At times, "back" goes a step, or more, further back than you'd expect.
Missing features list is too long to totally list, but a few things: pattern search, common word lists, study features, and on and on...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
