Word of the Day

It's wonderful to be able to find the correct spelling of a word. It's also nice to learn new words as well. You can also ask about a word you want to spell without going through nine shades of you know what! Great job guys! Don't stop creating easy to use programs!
I’ve wanted an easy to use program that, once YOU start to use it, YOU just start printing and eventually it corrects the word. Now that’s why I’m getting into this program a lot!!
This is a sweetie of an app!! YOU guys keep it going!!🙂. I still LOVE!, this app. I know that it will always give anyone, the ability too learn about ourselves, as too know and understand how to speak to others. I know, that this is a lot, too take in at one time, but the thought Theorem it takes too create such an awesome app, is astounding!!👏🏻👍🏻😉😃 DON’T STOP!!, upgrading this app. Well done, everyone!!

So disappointed

I loved this app so much. I loved how I always had this little learning device that I carry around with me everywhere. It was simple and never too complicated. But then it started to update...a lot. I knew this app was finally starting to kick off, and I was happy it was getting the attention it deserves. But god, what the hell was it with the ads? Ads come up every forking five seconds! How do you expect me to even finish reading the definition of the word you notify me to check out everyday? Your motives obviously show little care in actually enhancing one’s vocabulary, but rather finding a pathway to earn more money. It hurts writing this down, but I’m hoping that with this you’ll cut down the number of ads that pop up. How about just one every two minutes? That’s reasonable. Not one for every five seconds. In the meantime, I’ll be turning off notifications for this app specifically and being on the look out for new updates, hoping one of them includes less ads. I understand you need some way to earn money, but seriously though, less people will probably delete this. I have much love for this app, so please do your part at making sure the people who download this app see it as a learning tool. A tool doesn’t force you to do things.

I’m very sorry to hear that. I understand your frustration. Unfortunately, the project can’t live without ads. They support our team and give us chances to experiment and find the way we can give more value to our users.
We are working now on adding some more useful features for our users. We would be grateful if you appreciate them in the coming weeks and increase your rate. Without adds, our improvements would be impossible.
Hope for your understanding.

Hounding App Users

Updated again: I’m back to one star! And this time I deleted your app. I didn’t even get to read the definition of the word before you hit me with an ad screen. And not a short lived ad; I began to wonder if I’d ever get to read the definition. And then I remembered other times this app has frustrated. The history below is just one, not all the disappointment expressed. I’m tired of the see-saw.

Update: It’s fixed! And you have all my love!!!

I really like this app and the widget that goes with it. I love words. I enjoy expanding my vocabulary. I love etymology. In short the app is my brain candy. It looks well, sounds well and interesting words are frequent and consistent. What is making me lower my rating is feeling hounded to review the app every single time I open it. Even though I’ve rated it before. I can see being asked annually or even semi annually. Not every time. Certainly not so brashly as to not be able to see the content until I answer in some way. No isn’t even an option. Either I review or you get to “remind me later.” There’s just no reason to be so obnoxious in app design. If you don’t change this annoying aspect of the app I’m going to delete it. It’s that simple.

I’m very sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, the project can’t live without ads, they support our team and give us chances to experiment. So far we’ve managed to add some new features and develop better content ideas.
That’s why we would be grateful if you have a look at them and increase your rate. We do our best to make our app pleasant and enjoyable for our users. Without ads, it would be impossible.
Hope for your understanding.
