This app is fantastic. If you love learning this is a good choice. Language, history, quotes it even has games for moments of downtime. Direct links to subjects of interest. I now have the free version. Will review he upgraded version when I get that, this app satisfies as is. I enjoy this app. Looking up words is very easy. Cross-referencing just as easy. Built-in thesaurus creates an easy way to learn more about the word/s themselves but avoiding using the same words continuously. Very clean easy to use interface, allows for personal preferences so you can set it up to your taste.
Not perfect, but very good. Uses very little data, doesn't drain your battery, adds are minimal, and besides that I haven't found a word yet that wasn't in the dictionary. I always just ran to my Webster's, or the Oxford, but this has every thing right at your finger tips. That's just on the basic. The pro- upgrade gives even more. I especially like the medical dictionary and the thesaurus. Don't feel bad though, I'll never give up my Webster's or my Oxford. There just part of my desk. Overall a really great app, good job!!
The Free Dictionary by Farlex is a great app -- the best free dictionary app I have come across! Here's what is so great about it: 1) The definitions are given from numerous popular-branded dictionaries. 2) It has free content that other apps charge a premium for, like sample sentences, literary examples, thesaurus, translations, other dictionaries (ie, medical, legal, financial, acronym, idiom), encyclopedia, & Wikipedia. 3) An offline version can be downloaded. 4) It has a Word of the Day, Article of the Day, Quote of the Day, Idiom of the Day, This Day in History, Today's Birthday, & Today's Holiday -- all that can be read about in more detail by tapping on that article. 5) Mini games can be played, like Hangman, WordHub, Words Within Words, Spelling Bee, Mismatch, & Match Up. There is also a Weather preview & a Horoscope, if you're into that kind of thing. 6) Those are all available on the homepage that you can customise. 7) You can earn Neurons, Badges, & free meals for hungry children -- all by using the dictionary, reading the articles, & playing the games. 8) If you like competition, you can see how you rank against those in your high school, college, city, state, country, & world. 9) You can sync it across devices. Plus, there is still lots more this app offers. Yes, there are ads, but all that I have mentioned is free! Thanks, Farlex, for the great dictionary app!
I love to read and learn new things but sometimes its hard to find a subject of intrest. With this app i get multiple articles with several different subjects and good everyday info i like to start my day off with. For example the weather, words of the day, idiom of the day, your horoscope and much more and its all literaly at the swipe of a finger
Dropping a star. The app is very useful and informative but it keeps deleting my bookmarks without any warning at all. It's done it several times now. That renders the bookmark feature unreliable, and thus, worthless. I find it quite annoying since I use the bookmarks often. Please fix and I'll give it five stars again. Thank you.
This is the first app I install when I buy a new phone. Being a writer, that's not surprising. However, I would feel like this even without my current profession. I read quite a bit, and even Kindle doesn't have every word in it's dictionary. Excellent app, which I highly recommend.
