App Reviews

  • Ads are ridiculous

    By PugD
    The banner ads at the bottom of the screen are fine, but 15 second video ads? That’s insane for a basic dictionary app. I deleted it immediately after the first video ad.
  • Reading & Learning New Words

    By SergioW
    I recently went to the library with a friend and decided to go overboard and checked out 22 books of interest to the both of us. We mainly checked books out from the self help section. We believed that this would help develop our character and teach us to reinvent our lives into richer and more fulfilling roles. I found my self in search of virtues to identify, define and develop within myself to further succeed in my personal growth process. With the Marriam-Webster Dictionary I was able to get a full range of access to words of virtue, their most accurate definitions, and synonyms that also lead me to find further virtuous words to add to my list. I’m very satisfied with the work, effort and laborious task that Merriam-Webster has done in keeping the English vocabulary in tack and updated to date. I’m proud of owning and reading a Marriam-Webster Dictionary and properly increasing my vocabulary power and editorial skills and proficiency within the English language. It’s simply the best resource to have this app on my iPhone and easily access the words I need, want and love to use and add to my repertoire. To me being concise and eloquent in the messages conveyed speaking or writing daily is important to being recognized as a person who is prepared to speak righteously and truthfully to all. Wisdom is with the walls of the words you use. They are the thoughts we find and capture when looking for what interests us and lead our curiosity into the unknown. Weather virtuous or sinful in nature, the mind manifests itself into a creative or destructive force by the words in our lives. The Marriam-Webster Dictionary is a must have to master the literacy process and to unleash your highest potential for learning. If I didn’t have this great and valuable resource I would literally be at a loss for words...
  • iPhone 8+

    By Ambertheflowerlady
    The Webster APP does not pronounce the words as it did on my former iPhone.
  • To go site for words

    By Cheapo786
    Have this bookmarked, as it is my to-go site for word meaning and for thesaurus.
  • The search function is terrible.

    By eyifbjk
    Great app except for the search function. If you do not spell a word perfectly it will not find it, which makes the dictionary kind of difficult to use except for words you already know. Kind of defeats the purpose of a dictionary.
  • Wonderful resource

    By stcbmhz
    ThisHas become part of my tools at the bottom of my phone. It now has a vocabulary quiz to increase vocabulary which allows you to look up the word she did not know, also to see your answer is correct and incorrect.
  • Good

    By bdjdhsbvsshsb
    The app itself is awesome, but it would be much more useful if we were allowed to play games with the words we save. It would honestly make memorizing words easier
  • Word if the day

    By B Valyi
    Word of the day is my favorite part and I love that it is sent to to me daily via notification. I wish that I could pick the time I was sent the word of the day, but I guess thats just nitpicking. Other than that great app!
  • Good dictionary app but...

    By Khaysun
    I already bought the subscription to remove ads but the app keeps reminding me to purchase a subscription.

    By Pamlit
    I have always liked knowing the meaning of words. My memory works slow so I rely on the dictionary. We had the Great Big one when I was growing up. I played SCRABBLE with my Honey for over 20 years. He is in Heaven, so now I play with people on line. If I don’t know the meaning I HAVE to look it up. Thanks!!!!!!
