Solid dictionary app with s thesaurus built in. Word of the day feature is awesome too learn new words. I'm always trying to work said word of the day into conversation throughout the day. It's also nice to not need to copy a word then go to Google to see its definition. Just select a word and there's an option to define in the copy/paste meme that comes up. Splendid.
It would be more useful if it was possible to turn off all of the "extra" content. I need something to simply look up words as needed. I do *not* need a "word of the day" and blog about this and a slideshow about that and a blog about that and a slideshow about this... The portion which supplies the function I need occupies a very small slice of the screen, leaving 80-85% of the screen to be taken up with the extras I neither need nor want - but there's no option in the settings to turn such things on or off. Also, the forced flip to portrait is not helpful on my tablet with my workflow. I work with almost all aps in landscape mode, so a forced flip for a (supposed) quick lookup adds extra complexity.
A good dictionary depends on all definitions and not just one less commonly use definition and not on bells and whistles and a flashy interface which has very limited resources in terms of defining words. I don't mean to sound strident but look up the word strident and you only get one definition, and loud, raucous and grating sounds should be the second definition not the only definition.A dictionaries function is to presents all definitions of a word, not be the most fancy app with the most features. Word of the day means nothing if the words definition is limited or incomplete. You can get a better definition if you Google it. You may call me strident, but I don't think you would because you don't know what it means. Operatic is another one you missed the ball on. I have no faith in this any longer. okay Google give me more and varied definitions. usually it would be the second usage, or the obvious which no one would bother to look up if it was obvious so I would look for a second definition as the person most likely isn't looking for that childish 1st explanation.
Please add a tab for complexity of the words. Also fix the autofill feature. When I finish typing a word, it makes me have to wait for the app to complete previous autofills. For example I look up for the word "example" and when I'm done typing, the app keeps generating autofill lists for words "e", "ex", "exa" etc.. It is supposed to skip all of them and instantly come to the final version which is "example".
PLEASE ALLOW COPYING OF TEXT! When I hear a word I don't know I add its definition into a flashcard app I've installed. But even though I have all of your paid content I must do a Google search for a definition I can copy and then paste onto a flashcard. Obviously this is a problem across Office apps, too.
The definitions need to be written differently using commonly spoken terms. Loyalty to the spoken language communicates deeper to the readers. Especially foreigners. When an expert explains something impossible for the common person to understand he looks smart to them. But to another expert he looks stupid, doing something only to be proud.
