  • Excellent dictionary app

    By Stone Kisses
    I love MW Collegiate and the app version is great. The one thing I miss from the app that the hard copy version has is the grouping of synonyms that explains the subtle differences between each synonym. The hard copy has this while the app does not. I think I might go buy a hard copy just for that feature.

  • very nice user interface, nicely organized

    By withrespectto
    i used to mostly use Oxford, but its interface is not as pleasant to use as Merriam-Webster. (plus, Oxford annoys one asking to "please rate this app".)
