I like to know words this app has some good ones LolHehe                Great app I love it
Love this new update Very clean and easy to navigate                Mali
Kinda like the review below the app is worth any popup Just upgrade if its that bad If youre a reader or wordsmith this app is a must                Dont let negative reviews fool you
Removed the Thesaurus option Will be deleting this app Too many ads anyway    Bad Update
New page layout works very well straight to the point easy                BetterClearerCleaner
Always at hand and ready to pull up a word with one touch of my finger Very convenient Love it                Always HandyJust a tap away
Definitions are lacking    Weak
I wrote this in hopes that they cease to ask me to rate this app It has definitions                It has definitions
And whered the thesaurus go    This is awful
The thesaurus isnt included in the free app anymore I use it everyday for school I dont want to pay for that too    Why cant I use the thesaurus anymore
Fun                Fun
This update if you want to call it has made a oncegreat flagship app too ugly to use The new interface is dated and a major downgrade The overly large fonts and every part of the interface are blurry and hard on the eyes if youre using anything later than an iPhone 55s In other words no native resolution This was my one and only dictionary app but now Im scrambling to find a new one       Ugly Blurry iPhone 6 users need not apply
Good app Have used it professionally and it has not let me down Even on professional research work                DictionaryCom
Really comes in hand for students                Great
Excellent                Excellent
Love app Easy to use                Recommend
Just updated to new version today my first few attempts opening the app it continued to crash The new and improved layout is cluttered confusing and cumbersome PLEASE revert back to older version       Previous version was wayyyy better
Excellent app and easy to use Love it                Excellent App
I got a new phone My app and upgrades didnt transfer I no longer have a thesaurus but can pay for a new app and upgrade So disappointed    Thesaurus Missing
This is a great app to try It gives you a new word each day it gives you words in which you have to find the meaning and many more Its a great way to learn higher vocabulary                App review
Shame on you Dictionarycom You used to be one of my favorite apps But in the last update you wiped clean my personal word list history over the last four years That literally made me feel sick You made the app worse and still have the intrusive ads Never again    Lost Years of Words
Whats not to love about it Reliable and convenient Its all I need                Love it
Use it frequently                Excellent
I use this baby daily for spelling definitions thesaurus I am spoiled I would find it hard to be relegated to a hardback dictionary This app makes it so easy                Greasy app
Excellent                Perfect
I am a longtime user of Dictionarycom and its thesaurus I have had the app for a while and it was decent until I updated last week Now the opening screen is a cluttered turnstyle of annoying features If I want to use the thesaurus my primary reason for usage I have to first search for the words definition then swipe to synonyms Very tedious The old style was much more efficient I thought that I might be able to find thesaurus faster on the leftside toolbar but only the translator can be found there I already have another app that I use for translation I have this app for defining words and using the thesaurus but after this update I am thinking about downloading something else    App was decent until update
Fabulous app you dont need to looking for other sources you have it all right here                Tree surgeon
Its wonderful carrying dictionary to help me find meaning of words I am very grateful to use this great dictionary for English as a second language for free                CEO
Unfortunately this could be great but is absolutely horrible    Ads are Out of Control
I use this for homework its really good its just that there are a lot of ads besides that I love it                Its amazing but one thing
I was taught to look up information I didnt know as a child so Id learn not only about what I was looking up but how to use the tools that would unlock that information This app is very helpful in doing that I can learn what words mean but I can also hear how to properly pronounce it and how to properly use the word in sentences which is very useful in not showing ignorance Thanks for this extremely useful tool                Great app
Ok but crashes way to often    Meh
So fn busy Cant find thesaurus now    Terrible app in its latest iteration
Very difficult to use I feel not as much information is given and the ads are very annoying Just use the site it works 10 xs better    Let down

So Many Ads                Bad review
A great way to continue to develop your vocabulary and remain sharp as you enter your 60s                Great App
The app tends to bug me with its upgrades that stray from its purpose But it Id very helpful          Helpful but a bit extra
I used to love this app It was just like the website and the thesaurus was only a couple of taps away Well they really screwed it up with this update Its annoying to use and theres no access to the thesaurus anymore Change it back    What the heck happened
For having English as second language I can really depend on dictionary app for spelling and word meaning in addition to the informative word of the day Greatly appreciated                Very useful tool
Love the app would of been a 5 if not or all the upgrading you have to pay for             Upgrading
I upgraded it to include Translation capability however it only last few weeks and lost its translation function and I have no idea how and where to call help    Useless upgrade
This app helps when my daughters book thesaurus fails                Great
Its pretty cool             Pretty
I really digg the new design Theres so much to explore with so much ease I barely know where to start Lol This is awesome guys thanks Makes reading the dictionary so much more enjoyable          
Can not find the microphone Need this option          Where is it
Works great             I like it
Too many pop ups       Not good anymore
I have learned many new words and wished that I had this when I was in school                Great way to learn new words
For the most part the pop up ads on this app have made it useless They cover easily one third of the screen on an iPhone and just as youre trying to click on a definition or a link another one will appear on the screen causing you to click it and open Safari I fully understand that a free application needs support by advertisement but this Application is by far the worst example of a developers judicious use and creativeoptimal placement of advertisements Ads are on the top and bottom many times double stacked and with a close button so small that it might as well not even be there because 95 of the time the ad will open Like I said I understand this is an advertisement supported app but the developers really could optimize their placement For now 12 stars Fix the annoying pop ups and 45 stars       Great at Popup ads
