Convenient & Versitile

I Love It & Just Discovered that if I hit the speaker button next to the definition it would pronounce the word, which in this case I was really struggling with. Also, when reading an article I can pop-up the dictionary for an unknown word then, continue with the article. I can move the dictionary around, after it pops-up to look at the article and the definition of the word at the same time. Thanks

The Free Dictionary

Love this AP. Interesting, educational and the games keep my 74 old mind sharp. Fun to share word of the day with others. Read it every day.

Very nice

This app works great, very quick to give the syllables, and meaning of words, with lots of other info. Highly recommend it.

Great Application!

I really like that it gives synonyms, related words and antonyms along with the definition--this really helps to shed light on a new word.

In Depth Information

What I like is the same as what I don't like, too much in depth information. This dictionary is fantastic for any one doing research on a topic because in addition to in depth information foot notes are provided so that you can do even more research.

Individual Challenges...

As I'm not into "sharing" or "challenging" others, I quickly and easily went thru the Spelling Bee, Word Matchup, Hangman. Word Within A Word slightly more of a challenge. That's it for a single player? No "next" Word Matchup or Hangman after getting the first one? If there ARE further games for them, I couldn't find them. Also the Spelling Bee...hearing the word is giving it too much credit. Broken and unclear and one was (I thought) even pronounced wrong. Need to clean this up for level above Hard.

easy to get to without having to cross the room. Review

There is nothing I don't like about Dictionary. I always click on the "Word of the Day". I always enjoy the expanded/related information. Wouldn't do without it.

Great learning fun!

I like that rarely used Words of the Day are introduced, pronounced, and used in sentences to teach the proper usage. I love the Quote of the Day, Article of the Day, This Day in History, and all the word games. I especially enjoy the opportunity to play new games daily. I only wish I could do more than one Match Up per day, as one can for the other 3 games. The Free Dictionary offers great teaching and learning tools. Love it!!!
