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.
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.
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
