  • Too slow

    By karen889
    It takes approximately 10-15 second for it to search a word. Sorry it’s too slow and deleted the app ! Edit: in response to the developer- I travel for work and I travel for leisure. So my view is not just based off one location thus your “connectivity” excuse. Your app is extremely slow and now I just use plain google which takes about 1-3 seconds( yes I actually time myself)!! Do better !!!

    I like Dictionary & Thesaurus very much. Use nearly every day. Really looking forward to trying Power Pack too.
  • Disappointed

    The ads are awful now and I have to repeatedly by the upgrade that includes example sentences. Even then, the example sentences aren’t typically helpful or of quality.
  • no scribble

  • AD WALL. On a freaking dictionary app.

    I will delete this app if it gives uses an ad wall again. Too many other good options out there to have to put up with something that ridiculous.
  • No Dark Mode

    By Prof. Willett
    I use to use this app all of the time. I even considered buying it because of it’s usefulness. However, my eyes are not what they used to be so I cannot use this app anymore. Other apps have implemented a Dark Mode theme which solves my problem. Dictionary does not have a Dark Mode so I cannot read the screen. I keep it on my phone in the hope the developers include a Dark Mode in a future version.
  • Free Knowledge > Capitalism

    –“A tasteless tactic I would not have expected from Dictionary.com.” It is worth mentioning that I have PAID for a few extensions offered by Dictionary.com. Shouldn’t that be enough to quell the bombardment of full-screen ads? I loved Doctionary.com. It was my favorite referencing tool as it operated quickly and was easily navigable. Now, I have to completely close the app and restart a new search altogether due to the FACT the ads are PURPOSELY designed with the “close” button off-screen. I regret spending money on the extensions and my finger is hovering over the “Delete App?” button.
  • Used to be Great

    The app used to be awesome, but then I used it once when I was playing Scrabble, and the app kept shutting down. I don’t know if it’s my now phone, but it was very annoying. Besides that, it’s amazing. The definitions are clear and easy to understand. (Almost) All good here. 🙃
