The Word of The Day, especially when used VIA the Widget, has never worked properly. The Widget displayed word never advances to the next day until you ooen the widget. More annoying is that any time you Reboot your phone, it goes back to "Light" and I have to manually scroll up to the current days word. How hard should it be to have the app get the phones date. I have definitely "Seen the LIGHT". LOL

Annoying. Doesn't let me switch between dictionary and thesaurus. Also having to click text box multiple times to initiate search. Edit: I'm fully aware of that function. It does not function as it should. I have to activate search on a word before I'm able to switch between dictionary and thesaurus

Just to point you in the right direction, ere's a quick Dictionary–Thesaurus toggle right on the home-screen. The app will surface entries for the site you search, if there is an entry on that site (some words may not be found in one or both sites ) https://dictionary.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360049432514. Thanks for using our app!

GLITCH REPORT: using Android you can highlight a word, see a pull down menu option and select Dictionary. This used to be a very neat feature, until the other day it started getting caught in a loop that makes it impossible to go back to the text you were reading. In fact, it becomes impossible to exit the app.

Sorry to hear that Xavier. The information google shares with us from your review shows you are using a quite old version of the app. Can you please update the app to the latest version and try again? If the issue persists in the latest version (latests versions 10.0.5), please do let us know. Thanks for using our app, Xavier.
