  • No Sound

    There is no sound for the past month when I touch the button to pronounce the words. Can you check it out please? Thank you. There is no audio. Help!
  • Server errors when trying to download offline dictionary

    By %@-#$+=&*/;():,'l.
    I sent an email about this with no response. Too bad, the previous version presented no such problem.
  • Don’t pay for any extras

    By alismcg
    My acct has been charged but I was not allowed to download the offline database. I dumped the app to download again and there’s no Restore Purchase button; just a sign in to buy again. Support has not responded to my request either. CAUTION
  • Prononciation stopped working a while ago

    By Mirocal
    I thought it’s an online availability issue, but this is persistent. I have the paid app and uninstalling/reinstalling didn’t help.
  • Terrible ad placement

    By maxreichelt
    App added whole page video ads with timers, negating any time saves by using the app instead of google.
  • I hate to do this....

    By nickname1840264849
    Alright....I do NOT write reviews. But this time.....I feel like someone needs to read this. This app could be the best dictionary app on the inter-webs. I use it every day, and I just feel like the definitions and overall information I get about the words I look up are fantastic. But no matter how good the content is, my experience with the app is absolutely ruined by the many bugs and general issues I experience while using it. How many times can it possibly crash? Why when I select a word based on auto-fill suggestions does the definition refuse to load? Such potential, such a disappointment in so many ways. Fix a tiny handful of things and this is the best dictionary app there is, by far.
  • Is this a Democratic Party editorial page or dictionary??

    By irritated and leaving the app
    The editorials are completely overkill and biased. Why is Dictionary trying to influence opinions on the border wall. It’s supposed to be a dictionary not MSNBC.
  • Audible Pronunciation Not Working

    By 85ZingoGTR
    So far seems like a good app. Does a good job with definitions and I even like the added bonus of the history of the word and the capability to give you a definition if the word is part of a viral meme (ex. Doge). But one very important component is currently not functioning with this update. The audible pronunciation feature. I tap it and nothing comes out of it. Please fix this soon.
  • Who’s in charge of this mess?

    By mschultz
  • Diction or Division?

    By JSP60
    Sadly, you’ve made this app a platform for divisive articles rather than a place for word meaning and grammatical instruction. Please bring back the information without the propaganda!
