Literally only got the app to receive push notifications with the word of the day, because it's messed up in my emails. The app tells me I need to turn notifications of and routes me to my phone's settings, where no such option exists. Upon going into the general notification settings, this app just doesn't show up. So not only are my emails not working from the website, but the app is bugged as well. Very disappointed.

Effective as a dictionary but the crossword is super glitchy. It worked fine for me for months and then all of the sudden it started flashing, blacking out random squares, erasing inputs, and hiding the clues and the keyboard. Issues persisted after uninstall/reinstall. I understand that the crossword is put out by a 3rd party, but it's a shame Dictionary dot com hasn't addressed this issue yet, as multiple people have had this problem.

Though this app's title is on the nose, it does exactly what it says on the tin, and even more! There are two daily words to learn: word of the day & synonym of the day. They have a wide range of knowledgeable articles, all of which are well written, duh. Plus, there are quizzes and little games to boost ones personal lexicon. If you're not familiar with that word you soon will be.
