  • My Best Friend

    By Zaziana
    Merriam-Webster is the best friend I never knew I needed. I got a set of Merriam-Webster reference books when I was just out of college and kept them by my desk at work. I’m a licensed Interior Designer. My job isn’t just about making beautiful environments but also about writing narratives to describe those beautiful environments and writing contracts, specifications, executive summaries, etc. And, if you’re not following @Merriam-Webster on Twitter, you don’t know what you’re missing!
  • Great app!

  • Great dictionary with ways to increase your vocabulary

    By colomountaineer
    It is easy to use, good graphics, and well supported. My go-to for a dictionary for several years.
  • No sound

    By don'tlike3stars
    I really liked this app but have had a problem with the sound. At first it was intermittent then not at all unless it’s an ad. I deleted the app and reloaded it but the sound worked only once. I also tried to communicate this problem to the provider of the app to no avail. Bye bye app, I’m going to look for a replacement.
