  • My handy reference!

    By MrsTRJ
    I love this electronic dictionary! I enjoy receiving the Word of the Day. I also appreciate the convenience of having a dictionary and thesaurus on my tablet that I can refer to whenever I have the slightest insecurity about the meaning or use of a word.
  • Fun and educational!

  • Love the word of the day

    Love the word of the day on this app.
  • Good app

    By scribanote
    I’ve been using the app for years, is it perfect? No but it is very easy to use and as a amateur writer this app has given me many ways of saying the same thing so that my writing doesn’t become redundant. Words are strengthening to the mind and soul. Learning to be articulate can take one placed they never dreamed possible.

    I’ve had this app for years but never used it, sad to say. I am quite impressed with the ease of use especially the feature of putting synonyms within the definitions and accessing with a touch. Love the size of the fonts. It’s worth five stars!
