I also love the word of the day feature it's expanding my vocabulary.
I especially love learning new words with its daily "word of the day".
now I can't even search for a new word.
Excellent Reference works for me like the voice feature.
It's a good app but the voice feature doesn't analyze words.
Love the audio pronunciations and definitions and roots.
and the audio pronunciation feature doesn't play sound at all.

Great App Awesome voice search             Bamba
Being a student can sometimes be difficult when finding a word you dont understand and your dont want to bring a heavy dictionary to school This solves the problem Its like an entire dictionary on my phone                Amazing
I purchased the app to use all of it features As a student I readAnd write a lot so learning new words and definitions come in handy                Handy
I do like its simplicity Its cool OK and nice The only thing is that the ads pop up unnecessarily when searching for a word Theyre very distracting and sometimes they cover up the whole page Also sometimes they prevent me from adding a word to my favorites The ad banners should be put somewhere else Maybe before we use the dictionary and see the Word of the Day Otherwise keep them out of the actual dictionary itself Other than that as I said its cool and OK          Its Good
Im also unable to see the Word of the Day in my iPhone 5Cs Today dropdown menu I know its a nitpicky kinda thing but its really disappointing that the software doesnt work for such a simple thingPlease patch the problem in the next update or Im switching to another dict app          Great app bad technology
The definitions provided by this app are anemic at best Ads pop up in the middle of a word search and while I realize the app is free because of the ads they are unnecessarily intrusive I do not recommend this app    Poor
Was able to text others the word of the day Now I can only email it PLEASE bring back the TEXTING abilityJFM             Word of the Day SUGGESTION
doesnt know the definition to reinvigorate             Doesnt know a word
VERY DISAPPOINTING app Enter any word not in common use and you will get no results Other dictionary apps are far superior It is sad that an organization with such a prestigious history would attach its name to such an inferior app If you want a good dictionary app look elsewhere    Disappointing
I PAID hardearned money for this app a few years ago At that time it was free of advertisements so basically I paid for an adfree app I got hijacked to say the least and I would go as far as to say FALSE advertisement I dont even use it anymore waste of money I use WordBook dictionary free no ads and it also has an anagram reader    Adsreally
This app was okay until I decided not to write a review Then all of a sudden it started to flash on and off making it very annoying and hard to read Pretty petty of the developers Not everyone likes to write reviews    Immature developers
Also ads Come on    Word of the day app no longer functional
It works fine for common everyday words but those words I know the definition of However when looking up less common words it doesnt find them Also only has certain forms of the word example epistemology is there but no results found for epistemological So this AP is great for kids but for anything more advanced it fails          Ok if you have a limited vocabulary
I searched for a word in the app and no results were found When I searched for the same word on the online version it found a definition    Missing word definitions in app
It is a good dictionary but does not have that many words included such as the word entrepreneur which I was very surprised             Good but needs improvements
I like this app except the Word of the Day widget doesnt work          Good but wod doesnt work
I like the app however the big problem is with the favorite page and not being able to organize the words in alphabetical order Very frustrating       Needs work
I used to love this app but now if I need to find out how to spell a word and use the mic I get could not find or I dont understand So I tried speaking very easy words like tree cat car But it still couldnt understand I think this upgrade did something to it       Disappointed now
There are now ads in the MIDDLE of definition pages and one ad that covered my whole screen after a search didnt even let me close until it finishes loading its game preview Feels more like malware than an app now    Check out the new ads
Used to be a good app now locks up will not let you complete your word    Dictionary
Great app Fast right there no upfront nonsense right to the word dictation works great too Ads are easy to ditch and have not been troublesome at all Enjoy it Free                Used daily
Does anyone else feel like we should be able to sync our saved Favorite words across devicesOr perhaps access them on a fullsized computerI suppose theres a reason for everything    Crime to humanity
Word of the day and the vocabulary quiz are excellent for expanding your vocabulary and good way to make yourself quite a bit more sophisticated Lol                Great learning expansion
This app is okay but when you look up a word and you try to go back to where you were it doesnt take you there Can you fix that so it does that       Mmm
The application has excellent and complete definitions                Dictionary
Ads at the bottom ads in the middle ads on the cover page ads when you search new word ads that block your whole screen and you cant exit out until you wait 5 second Very annoying       Too many ads
Has every word I have needed Ads can be a nuisance but not the end of the world Great navigability and visually pleasing If you want to know what words mean and do not want to pay money you should get this app                Great Dictionary App
Before the updates I had a ad free dictionary but now I have a app with a lot of ads hate you people    Really Ads
The app no longer updates the word of the day in Notification Center Otherwise a great app looks like a real dictionary          Notification Center
Nice App but the pronunciation doesnt work with me             Nice
Use it frequentlygotta look up Bill OReillys word of the day                My friend
Great for my AP Lit class when the teacher uses obscure words                Love it
I wish iphone could allow it to sync as a useful instrument in the define area of the iphone No definition comes up when presented and it one selects web ads appear Please work on that idea mjkauling hotmailcom                The free dictionary is easy to use
Was reading a book that said the character was wearing a cagoule I had never heard of that before so I went to my Webster dict AppAfter typing in the word all I got was NO RESULTS FOUND Then I went to my spell checker app and it not only made sure it was spelled correctly it gave me the definition tooIts pretty sad when a spell checker is more informative than a dictionary       Disappointed
Annoying ads annoying app    Ads and more ads
Best                Gtrc
Was excellent in prior weeks Today the word suggestions dont always start with the same letter That is useless Whats up with this change    Awful word suggestions
Not the best Better dictionary apps out there Like the simplicity Dont like the ads       Eh
Typed in word comedogenic app didnt recognize or suggest anything else Do love the fact app has suggestive sentences Love the fact example sentences on same page mic not working just have a prob wapp NOT recognizing words I use Lol    High hopes Didnt deliver
Easy Efficient and Effective app                5 stars
Compared to the other dictionary apps Marriam Webster is by far the best Dont waste your time downloading other apps This ones a winner                Great app
I think its exemplary I use it all day every day I especially like the word of the day                Dictionary
Great all around                Thumbs up
Cant understand english terrible    Useless talk to it it must speak Greek
Thanks to this app I can do my dictionary homework from school thank youthank youTHANK YOU                BEST DICTIONARY APP EVER
Idk if its a new update or what but suddenly my word of the day doesnt show up on the pull down notification thing on my iPhone 5s Where it used to give you the word of the day and its definition it now just says word of the day and shows a little arrow that redirects you to the app Nothing else Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no hope Idk if this is just my phone or what          Word Of the Day widget notification thing doesnt work anymore
It would be nice if you could see the previous words of the day    Suggestion
Very useful It provides the word of the day so I can expand my vocabulary                I love this app
Its not work on Notification right now IP6          Word today doesnt work
Really wish I hadnt updated this app One ad banner on the bottom was plenty now theres one in the middle of the definition to accidentally click on while scrolling Also the list of synonyms for words doesnt change for different definitions    More Ad Banners
