Cough up 4 bucks for this app, people!!!
The app I think is so SO sooooo worth 4 bones. I LOVE it and the developers deserve to have this noticed and when u use a free version of an app often and you find it useful and interesting ans enlightening and well designed, it seems to me that paying for the one that costs just a few bucks is only fair to the developers. My philosophy is that when I have established I very much like the free version of any app and use it regularly, that it is a given to pitch in to support the people that made it. But... I dunno if people in this society of ours think much about the actual people behind the app... they dont get past the thought "is it free?". Well, people out there should use free apps all they want as I do, but the ones i use regularly I will upgrade once they become a common go to for me. But that's me.
Most words I research are contained within this site...
However, occasionally I will have to resort to another dictionary to find the word I need. What I like about this site: Definitions from several sources are given: a helpful feature. Often word origins are included. Common foreign words/phrases are included. There are usage notes, usually when I need them! There is a thesaurus. Some proper nouns are included. There is an offline alternative and it is free. There are two text methods of pronunciation. There is an audio pronunciation feature and it is free. Having said that, the first two audio voices - American and British - accessed by the flag icons - frequently and laughably butcher pronunciations. Witness “ampoules,” which the Brit voice pronounces with an extra “l” as “amplool.” There are many more, and more extreme examples, but I’ve forgotten all of them (fortunately or, with my suggestible nature, I might be walking around sounding like an illiterate fool)! The male American voice, accessed by the speaker icon, is the most accurate. Obviously some thought and expertise were involved in his software. But I use the American and Brit pronunciations only if I want a good laugh, or, if I want to see how thoroughly a word might be mispronounced. Maybe you’d like to think about offing the Brit and the flag Yank! Nevertheless, Thank You for publishing this dictionary because, despite its flaws, it is my go-to dictionary, and I use it frequently. Tam
A huge thanks!
I do feel sorry for not having the ability to give as much appreciation and attention to this app as I would like. I look forward to using Dictionary everyday and find myself rather down when I don’t have internet access. Yes, it advertises offline availability, though unfortunately, I’ve never been able to utilize it for some reason it just won’t load for me. Aside from that, When I am able to use Dictionary, I’m on it sometimes for hours at a time, or I have it open in my recently used apps line up to be referenced, toggling back and forth when I need it. So again, many thanks to it’s developers.
I enjoy the word matches and WordHub. I don’t really pay attention to the scoring on WordHub, but it seems it could be prorated in relation to the total possible words. That is, if I get 13 of 20 possible words, isn’t that better than getting 33 out of a 100? Also, sometimes I get hooked into trying to find the answer to a teaser question in the accompanying articles for the history or birthday sections. That is often exasperating. The articles are generally quite lengthy and the answer is buried within. There is a lot of information in the articles, and it would be too time-consuming to read a lot of them. Some are almost like a short book. But I learn new things and amuse myself with the variety of activities available. I also wonder if the dictionary is British as some of the words and expressions seem to reflect that.
Forced ads with sound while in seminar
The forced ads popped up. It had sound even the phone in silent mode. Could not skip the apps. Had to wait for 5s. WITH SOUNDS ON IN A SEMINAR. Horrible and embarrassing experience. Thefreedictionary is always my favorite website to looks up words. I was so happy when I could use this app. Until this terrible accident happened. I only want to look up vocabulary. You can show ads but without sound please! Don't you think people only use this app in their free time, not work time? SO DISAPPOINTED! Updated: Thanks for the quick response. I will keep an eye on this later and send you more information if I happen to come across same problem again. New update: The audio ads has been found and removed! Great job and prompt action!
A 3 is being generous, still must use search engine
The app is pretty good generally, but when it comes to using or finding historically used vocabulary it is not so hot. And I have suddenly started having self correction take place even when I retype the word exactly the way I wanted to be spelled, sometimes two or three times… It’s very very annoying! End it just writing this review took some doing… One would think that the words “read type”and “vocab you Larry” would already be in your dictionary! But as you can read above that is not so. You still have quite a lot of bugs to fix. It was my understanding that modern electronic dictionaries had a learning process that was supposed to be intuitive, but it seems that I constantly run into the same errors of misprinting and poor dictation over and over again.
Use it most every day. Love learning about people, events, new words. I enjoy the Match and Mismatch games. There is one small thing that I wish they would correct. When checking answers or reading an article, when you tap the return icon it takes you all the way back to the top of their beginning page and not where you were reading. You end up having to scroll down to where you were. Any chance of fixing that? Otherwise, an excellent ap and worthy to have. Amazing app. 2018- still using the app and love it. Love learning definitions to new words. Helps my memory and keeps me active mentally.
An excellent app for definition, origin, and regional usage
The app provides the various regions where a word is used. The app seems to draw definitions from various sources so one gets a better understanding of a particular word and how it should be used. If a certain word can have similar meanings in other disciplines it distinguishes it by indicating that that particular definition comes from a medical dictionary, etc. There is also a translation function that tells you the Spanish counterpart. I’m sure there are other languages available. This proves useful if you happen to be bilingual. The dictionary requires access to the internet. There might be a premium edition that allows one to download various dictionaries on your device. I believe there is a screen that allows one to play various word games to increase one’s vocabulary. There is also of course the standard “Word of the Day”. It’s an excellent app that I find both enjoyable and useful. It’s an app that one must have if one enjoys the origin and etymology of words
Huge fan of this app!
There weren't always full page pop-up ads, and I'd love to know how to stop them on any device I download the app to. Pop-ups cause me to stop use entirely. But, they don't happen so often that I can't appreciate using this one. I love (obsessively) Words Within Words. I also like to check my horoscope, play hangman, and match up. There's also an antonym game I'm growing to like. Okay, I think I like everything about this app... Except the full page pop-up ads. But, I am using the free version on this device. I pay on my other device and never see them. (They make me want to Hulk Smash!) But, I'll survive.
Amazing for all people who want to learn 💡
This is not just an app with a little definition or quote, this does so many things important to learn you can never stop. I start reading the quote of the day and then tells you part of it and the historical aspect and I could read all day. This is very accurate data and wish the high schools would be able to teach this informative app does. Thanks to the people who put time in this app 🤙. We also find the games which are very thought provoking for everyone and it’s not just games of who knows an emoji equation ‼️
Ask for feedback but don't try to improve app
I used to love this app but I'm so tired of being asked for feedback, with no improvement to the app. I have repeatedly requested the ability to bookmark words into customized lists or categories instead of the one list especially if you have hundreds of words bookmarked. This is perfect for people who want to separate medical terms from their favorite words, etc. This would make the app so much better but they obviously don't care enough to develop the app in realistic ways to satisfy the people who use it. I also highly doubt that I'm the only person who has asked for this feature.
Recommended but the above-average flashcard could be much better....
I love the app, it’s games and its educational purpose. The developers don’t want this to be only a reference app but to also have pedagogical components, thus its vocabulary-building games, etc. Kudos! That’s why the I desperately wish the developers would enhance the flashcard feature, which could be a more powerful education feature of the app if some greater flexibility was programmed into it. Currently, you can create only one flashcard for a word and assign only one definition to a word. Some words have many definitions, of course, and can function as different parts of speech. For instance, one should be be able to create a flashcard for “articulate (adjective)” and another for “articulate (verb)” — one should be able to edit the word shown, too, so that one can add to it cues such as “(verb)” or “(definition 1),” etc. Also, the definition character/word limit is too low, so you can’t, for instance, copy and paste additional definitions into the card in an attempt to get around the only-one-card-per-word, only-one-definition-per-word limitation.
Easy to Use
I love this app. So easy to use, so handy when I need a similar word quickly or when I don’t understand a word. Excellent app which meets my daily needs. Fun to use and I really like the additional notes of interest that it offers each day with fun filled facts. Tests my brain and strengthens my knowledge. I really enjoy all the useful information this app provides. One of the Best free apps I have ever installed. I wish more apps were this much fun, as useful and as helpful. Thanks for such a great app! Bottom line: Quick, fast, fun and easy to use. Wonderful app!
This is an awesome tool to have at your fingertips! Words that we use everyday are explained in detail once you look them up. This is also a wonderful tool while reading my Bible. While studying, I look up words I thought I knew the meaning for and come to find out that they mean something totally different!! This in turn makes the Living Word come to life!! You first have to know what words mean in your own language then you can study the Bible languages. I also like the push notification with the word of the day. AWESOME!! May God bless you all!!
It's the best dictionary so far among all that I have tried.
When you look for installing dictionary on your phone 1. you look for free, 2. For those English is not there native language they would be looking for a word explained in a "sentence"using it as an "for example", along with meaning defined. Now on top of all this basics, you get to see 3. Synonyms, 4. You can make your own books of the words which learnt, by adding them into a book. There are many reasons for not going to look for any other dictionary my friends! - Riken Patel
