Absolutely worth it By far the best dictionary app out there. I use it to look up unfamiliar words while I'm reading. The app gives you the option to "start learning this word," which adds it to the list of words the vocabulary game will quiz you on. It's an incredibly effective way to cement new words into your memory. The dictionary itself might be the best one I've ever seen. In addition to giving formal definitions and example sentences, it explains the word's meaning in a colloquial way. Great app.
Great app! This is one of the best apps which helps increase your vocabulary. The frequent usage of the words from different websites is indeed helpful. However, it would be more better if it didn't require internet connectivity for pronouncing words. A Google text to speech or any other default text to speech system engine is already available on all Android phones which would suffice (PS:no need to be a developer to know that). Also the words list that one is studying, if available offline will be more the merrier.
Needs Update!! A very good site of which I am a regular user. Was very happy to see an Android app for the same, which made life really easy. Now I can play on the move. But the app seriously needs improvement. Offline mode should be enabled. At the moment it requires net connection. I guess storing data locally temporarily should not be a problem. For checking out meanings of each word in this app I have to consume data. Also creating and editing word lists is not supported in this app. No feature to add words to existing lists as well. No user settings. Many words and idioms are not present. Downloading the audio pronunciations takes a lot of time. Also it is buggy. The app should be made free for all users.
Works perfectly! I love the app. Ever since I tried it I have been hooked! I love learning new words and equally important, how to effectively use them in conversation. This app does that with a comprehensive dictionary of words to keep me forever learning and improving. My only complaint is that not all words in the dictionary are playable in the word game, but we're talking about a small percentage. Also, when I inquired about this, I received a prompt response reassuring me that new words were being added daily.
Amazing app, but This app is an absolute must for vocabulary development. Every penny you pay for it is worth it. It teaches you words the same way as Norman Lewis teaches words in Word Power Made Easy. Only one drawback, I can't seem to add words from the app to my lists which is quite a nuisance. It'd be great if they add it next version. And that it is online dictionary, which is not super big an issue, but issue nonetheless.
The Best Vocab App This is really an Awesome app to learn words. It doesn't tell you just the meaning but it incept a thought of that meaning in our mind. I am giving 4* just because I need two small bugs to be fixed on the interface and not the functionality. 1) The progress % icon is somewhat distorted. 2) It is not allowed to backspace a letter in spelling questions. Please resolve these two issues in the next update it so that it will become a perfect app & receives my 5*. Thank you.
