Ratings and Reviews
This is a great dictionary app with an easy-to-use interface. My favorite part is keeping a list of fascinating words I come across with the “Bookmark” feature.
The only drawback? I couldn’t figure out a way to carry my bookmarks over onto my new phone. I just searched for them all manually on my new phone so I wouldn’t lose my list of fun words. YOLO, I guess? The feature is clearly important to me. Anyway, I highly recommend this app.
Finally, what I consider a real dictionary. I was sad when Apple stopped including a dictionary app with new iPhones. I really liked the simplicity of that one.
Now this wonderful app comes along and is just amazing in its speed and utility. It starts up quickly, and easily links out to other reference sites to make lookups meaningful.
A big shout out and thank you to the developers for this.
Looked for a long time for a App like this one. Am loving it.
Do recommend it. There is one- Small thing you (the developers )may want to ADD to this App is this.....
A way to “CLEAR “ words and their meanings after a while.
At least give the “Option” to do so.
Hope this Helps. Love your App...runs terrific.
