Free or Pro: What's the difference?

The free version of this dictionary is awesome. I paid $3.99 for the Pro version but nothing noticeable has changed... when I launch it it still says "The Free Dictionary" and the little window appears saying "Ads free version". It appears I could have saved my $3.99 and still have what I have... The "Free" Dictionary.

Loved it so much I bought it.

I like this 10 times more the any other dictionary. I found it so dead on I purchased it and I hate buying apps.

I love this App beyond all reason! I enter it EVERY Day that I can get on my P.C. and go as far as I possibly can in "Brain Use"! I love to almost always get match words in that 'game'... always did; I usually get 100% right.:) I also Love listening to the way the British pronounce the words differently! Veddy English! Also try my hand at the spelling game; want to feed the world's hungry children, you know! Enjoy this whole App Hughmongously! (lol)

I like it.

Pretty good dictionary. I like the translations into Spanish. Sometimes definitions in either language could be better. Good start to translating. Definitely not definitive.

Great start to your day

Love the this day in history articles, but the quotes need to be drawn from a broader pool. The same cadre of folks gets used over and over. Shakespeare, Einstein, and others are conspicuously missing. Not too mention many more quotes from presidents other than JFK would be appropriate. Great app but needs more depth in this area and Holidays in order to reach full potential.

I'm glad it has sync-able bookmarks now. It helps me to review new words whenever I need to on any device I'm working on. Very useful for language learner like me.

Very good app

Offline dictionary / thesaurus is too good. Works in flights, and on travel, when you need it most and when you aren't connected to the internet. Since there is one input window only, I wish the app makers would, by default, snap the cursor to that entry window! This would save a few keyboard clicks or some mouse movement!

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 search words would present a big step in improving this dictionary collection. Also, instead of stating "Word not found in the dictionary" for misspelled search words, you could suggest close alternatives, such as, "Did you mean...?" and then show a list of words that have similar spelling.
