Ratings and Reviews
Good dictionary for word games, but...
It’s great for all the combos you find in Scrabble, Boggle and other word games. However, in the last month the hyperlink to the more obscure words stopped working (website not found). Needs to be fixed. Also, when it did work, their site seemed infected with the occasional redirect to pirate sites. Perhaps this is related to that.
Great app, a few minor suggestions
This really a wonderful app, but two small suggestions. First, most of the time I open this app, I go to word finder. It would be great if the app would either remember the last state, or if the default functionality (when the app opens) could be changed in the settings.
Second, though the words are generally up to date I do occasionally come across legitimate words which are not included in the engine. The most recent one I can think of is velcro. I will grant you that this is also a trade name, but it also refers to a type of fabric fastener for which there is no other word. Forget the trade name. It has now entered the lexicon of day to day conversation... not as a verb, but as a noun. I think I also read that as of last year, it was now accepted as a word in scrabble, so why doesn’t the scrabble dictionary here include it?
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.
