Great app!

I've used the original for over ten years and now there's an app. I have used WordWeb when I beta read for authors, for my own writing and recommend it for everyone. It is both dictionary and thesaurus and it's free, the other apps that are listed on this page are there for comparison and an alternate purchase. Frankly, why would you pay for two apps when this one is free and does what those others do with one app?

My Favorite Dictionary App

I've had WordWeb on every PC for many years now and purchased the Pro version a long time ago. Great to see them keeping up to date with Windows 10 including mobile! A dark theme would be nice--especially for nighttime use.

Best UWP dictionary app

Love the app. Great clean UI and extremely quick. Just needs a live tile! Make it like the live tile for Advanced English Dictionary. It rotates between words of the day and recently searched or bookmarked words. Really slick. That's all this app needs and it's perfect

Thesaurus

It lists Chambers Dictionary and Chambers Thesaurus but you have to buy them! And at 7$ and14$ that's a big hidden fee. Otherwise its great

Accessing the WordWeb Dictionay

I just had it installed and thank you for making it available FREE. From what I have seen so far, it is very detailed and comprehensive but I am pretty much like the proverbial babe in the woods - I need some systematic way to access the Dictionary's features. In particular, when typing a letter and wishing to verifying the spelling of a word w/o running the risk of accidentally deleting the document.
