  • The ads are driving me insane

    By Prestonwk654
    I know you can remove them for money but they don’t even work properly. They come up at the worst times and for whatever reason the little ‘x’ that is to close it doesn’t work and after some seemingly random amount of time it eventually will go away. There are banner ads and pop up ads. Just this problem alone is causing me to delete this app and get another. Been only using it maybe 3 weeks and rarely.

    There are a lot of words that I do not know or at least understand their true and multiple meanings nor have I accomplished spelling. I wish for your app to identify spelling mistakes with choices, word processors have improved my mental spelling ten fold. Sincerely Thank you, Mike Gustin

  • Helpful

    By codycodycodh
    Helpful app that I’ve often used while reading. Would be nice if there was an easier way to review favorites rather than individually tapping through them.

  • More than Words

    By MyElise
    The English language is extraordinary for understanding in-depth communication, in-depth expression, in-depth teaching and in-depth clarity of words. I am dependent on it daily in understanding text in study. Love it!
