Used to be better! Got this app and even updated to the premium version to avoid the ads and really liked it. Now, it's gone into the gaming mode and I find that absurd! It a Dictionary app NOT a game app. I have game apps, and word game apps! This is supposed to an informative app---a DICTIONARY! I have another dictionary app, so I guess I'll go back to using that one. Giving three stars is being generous at the point! Go back to being a dictionary and cut out the games!
ONE step INSTEAD of FIVE 👎 NOW: 1 Copy the term, 2 load MW Dictionary, 3 Clear the MW's search field, 4 paste the term 5 Select the term in the pulldown menu for the definition. SUGGESTION: 😀 MW open on the content of the clipboard. And that's only ONE step. Many other dictionaries slready use clipboard contents. Why are you defying logic😈 ALSO when Internet is unavailable, you have no audible pronunciation. Make your pronunciation OFFLINE and serve your customers better. How many more years to request this necessity?
Just one thing. There is no widget available for this app! Of course the dictionary is 10 times better than other free apps with more concise definitions, a thesaurus and other added features and whatnot, but surely one of the features should be a widget. With that, you wouldnt have to open the app to search in the dictionary or thesaurus. I just feel that every app should be complete. Without a widget it seems slightly lacking... Overall, it is excellent.
Not so great I for one am very disappointed in the voice recognition of this App. I have even tried contacting the Developers to see if there was anyway of improving its ability to recognize voice commands. I was told to speak more clearly and then a quieter place. This was a totally unprofessional responses. As of May the Latest update to the app is a very big improvement. Thumbs up
Feedback Favorites alone must be able to scroll by viewer when he wants. Now all the words tried can be scrolled which is unnecessary or tiring. A viewer is interested in reviewing his favorites to improve the vocabulary. This is must. Moreover some words like 'twerked' has meaning in free version of Ipad but not in premium version of android which is not fare! I use note5 which is as costly or costlier than many iphone models and ipads! Regards. Dr E Ravishanker
