I first bought the Merriam Webster dictionary many years ago when it was a new app, and at that time it was the complete unabridged version with no ads. It cost $65, which was incredibly high compared to other apps at the time. But my wife is a linguistics expert and I majored in English in college, so we deemed it a good purchase because carrying around the actual unabridged Merriam dictionary, which sits now on the dresser in our bedroom for easy access, was not practical. It weighs about ten pounds. We were very satisfied with it. Then one day that version would no longer open, was no longer available, and was no longer supported. We were directed to download the new version, which we did. The new one is free, filled with ads, and abridged. After spending $65, the thought of paying $4.95 more for the ad free version of an inferior product made me slightly nauseous. If you must have a dictionary, and we certainly use it frequently, this one is as good as can now be had. But you will find the ads annoying, they make you sit through them for a while before you can close them, and you will find the entries to be limited. Not that it’s terrible for the majority of the people. We feel cheated however because we paid heavily for the unabridged version and Merriam has made the decision to rescind it’s availability in order to further monetize its product. A sad commentary on what was once a superior company with an unmatched product.
I have been using this app for years and always had the red title screen when I clicked it. After I looked up a word, I always would tap the back arrow to return to the initial screen. The back arrow is no longer there. I am disappointed and irritated. It changes the whole feel. Yes, there is a bar to go back to previously seen words, but I normally don't need to go back, as I have already seen that definition. Maybe they have a developer with a really poor memory. UPDATE: The developer responded that "You can still go back at anytime by swiping from the left side of the screen." My question is why they think that's good enough. There is no help in the app to tell you that. The FAQ on the m-w website doesn't mention it either. Do you expect your longtime users to read your minds? Just put it back, please. That made it obvious and intuitive, which are two important qualities in an app. MORE: Swiping from the left side worked a couple of times but is not working now.
I love using this app...I always need a dictionary to look up descriptions...a small amount of big words are not used in MY dictionary due to my uncertainty of the correct use or meaning...there are of course many more uses of this app, but what I use it for, is to build my vocabulary...AND LEARN...every time I look up a word in this dictionary, I cant seem to do under 10 minutes...at least...lol...due to where each word takes me...once the word is opened, you can tap on any number of other words in describing that such word...by doing this, I am learning their description, their origins, their uses and their most amazing history in some cases...I love this app...the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because if u misspell the word in the end, you don’t get anymore options for the word your looking for and/or if you use the wrong vowel and can’t figure it out, it’s a bust...if the can find a way to give you options of different ways to spelling what u might be looking for, then you’d get 5 ⭐️!, BUT GREAT APPLICATION AND DICTIONARY...IVE ALWAYS LOVED WEBSTERS DICTIONARIES!...thank you AmyB

When I bought Office 365 it came with Merriam-Webster dictionary for use in Word. I'm a writer and it was great--while in Word, to be able to click define and get an immediate response. I was happy until one day the app stopped working. I've been making do for a while now but finally decided to do something about it. That's when I discovered I can't get rid of the app. Every time I click define, the broken app takes forever to ultimately tell me that there is an error. No matter what I try I can't get rid of it in order to add a new app. Microsoft support tried to help but can't because according to them, it is a third-party app and it is out of their hands. I left a message on your support page a couple of weeks ago but never heard back. I left another message today.
