Interactive and Informative

Way more than just a dictionary. This is one of my new favorite apps. Extra content keeps me entertained for hours on end.

Great Resource

I have enjoyed this dictionary since I upgraded to Windows 8.1 a while back. It's my go-to source for research. It's great that the app tries to capture as much information as possible without the need to go out. And with the Pro version, it's great to have offline dictionaries in various languages.

Dictionary Pro-Wonderful

I first came in contact with this App through Nook. I am so pleased to see it here in my Microsoft window. I have purchased the Pro App and I am greatly excited to have it at my fingertips, as a great tool in the journey of my writing. I highly recommend this App as a tool for anyone that enjoys feeding the brain, as it is so much more than just a dictionary!

It's great. I hope they add more/improve upon it 2

5 Stars. I bought it 'cus it's a dictionary app and it was on sale. Worth the full price and more to me, but always glad to get more than I paid for.

Fun, functional and full of features.

It's a good app, but it's layout takes away from it functionality. If you want your dictionary as an app, then this is the best of the lot. A big plus is it's word games.

Great App

Easy to navigate, interesting articles and well worth the price.

Reviewer 3383 · 6/25/2015
Good -- with room for improvement

All in all, I would recommend this app to anyone who is seriously interested in the English language. The addition of wild cards (*,?) and editable the search words would present a big step in improving this dictionary collection.
