Neutral review Turn off word of the day by Juicy
Very useful for looking up meanings and origins. However Word of the Day choices are trivial and uninteresting, and its origin explanations are uninformative and poorly written. I would be interested in Word of the Day if it were educational, but it is not - and there is no way to turn it off. 3/5
Positive review REALLY like it, but... by anonym
It's funny how seeing some other people's opinions can really sometimes quite dramatically affect the rating that I'd originally planned to give an app! In this case particularly, I have to say that it didn't! I REALLY enjoy that the app provides more than a definition. It makes learning about history& usage, grammar& language so much fun! (And includes add'l words to explore too!) 5/5
Neutral review by anonym
Grammar is often poor or faulty. Word of the day choices are often words that are useless and even very articulate people wouldn't use. 3/5
Positive review Valerie by anonym
I love when it shows me the word of the day It broadens your vocabulary with words you wouldn't ordinarily use, or have heard before I think that it is fun, increasing your knowledge and using the correct pronunciations of words. 5/5
Positive review Great! by anonym
I use it all the time as a student for finding words I need or assistance in spelling them. I also use it in random conversation with my husband quite a lot too (we're nerdy), and it's much faster than turning on my computer. We don't have a paper dictionary...too many books already in a small apt. Word of the day is fun! 5/5
Negative review Stupid Word of the Day by anonym
Dear Dictionary: as a person who speaks English as their second language, I loved having you on my phone, but since you decided to push the Word of the day on me, I am breaking up with you and uninstalling you from my phone. I'd rather Google the freaking word I need than getting your unnecessary notifications every morning. News flash, if someone wants to see the word of the day, they can click on it. You don't need to shove it down our throats. 1/5
Neutral review No alerts or notifications by anonym
This app falls short of many expectations. No notification of new words. No sentence usage. No learning initiatives. It's a very basic dictionary. 3/5
Negative review Rude Developer by anonym
I unistalled it. App kept waking me up in the early morning hours with a word of the day feature I neither want nor use. I never enabled this feature, it just turned itself on with the latest update. 1/5
Positive review Word of the Day by anonym
After latest update, I keep getting the Word of the Day notification each morning. I checked my settings and I have that feature turned off. If I wanted to receive that notification, I would have selected yes. Please fix this! It's really getting on my nerves. Other than that, I like the app and use it often. Once the Word of the Day issue is fixed, I'll give a 5 star rating. 4/5
Negative review Uninstalling by anonym
Have had this app for numerous years, was one of the better apps, but the mandatory word of the day is annoying, will solve this problem by uninstalling and installing another app. 1/5
Positive review Satisfied by anonym
No problems with me, this app works well. I use it when I'm reading and need to look up an unfamiliar word or when I want to enhance my writing. 4/5
Positive review Dictionary by anonym
Not a bad tool. Comes in handy when I need to prove that I'm right about spelling to my husband.? I enjoy the word of the day message each morning as well. ? But I swear the idea of that was mine and my husband's. We have been picking a word of the day for years. Lol. ?????? . The only problem I have is that when speaker is on to pronounce the word, it only comes out partial, maybe after 10th try you will hear the whole thing. Also, I would like to know where do you guys find these words? 5/5
Neutral review One annoying issue by anonym
I continually get a push notification for the word of the day even though I have notifications turned off. 5 stars other than that. 3/5
Positive review It's just.. very Helpful by anonym
It shows you the definition of the word.. Exaples.. Gramer the word use in.. and some other things.. I advise you to try use it !!. The most interesting thing.. It's for free =)).. 5/5
Positive review Word of the Day by anonym
I like Dictionary, but there is no way to turn off the word of the day. It uses up my data. I have had this problem with other apps. It is a new update , but one should be able to turn it off. I use this app for work. Do lots of reports. 4/5
Positive review Best you can download! by anonym
I am an awful speller. I have been using spell correction of one kind or another for years! That's why I downloaded it. But it does a whole lot more. The feature I like best is the pronunciation. I have run it on several phones, three versions of Android, and with a few cell carriers. Not a whimper! 5/5
Negative review Stingy producer but fine by anonym
A lot of free functions available last time are now in app purchases! Thus, never update dictionary. On the whole, this app is still fine, with the basic thesaurus and dictionary. I hope they don't be more stingy from now on. 2/5
Positive review The one negative about this app... by anonym
It has been my experience that the examples given for a word(in sentence form) are completely useless!! They are entirely too complex and wordy to really get a good idea of what the word means. TOTAL FAIL IN MY OPINION. 4/5
Positive review by anonym
I love the web site and am very glad the application delivers the same detailed results. Although the interface is not as good as the original desktop version it does its job just as well. 5/5
Positive review Go to dictionary app by anonym
This app does exactly what you would expect, but redesigns occasionally make the home page more busy than necessary. 4/5
Positive review by anonym
Used to love it and use it often, especially to double check students' spelling (after a while their horrible spelling gets into my head). Now I hate word of the day! 5/5
Negative review STOP SENDING WORD OF DAY by anonym
This app was great. I even upgraded and purchased the encylopedia section. Then all of a sudden I start receiving notifications about the Word Of The Day. Found there is no way to turn it off and when it was sending them to me on Saturday morning waking me up I had to uninstall the app. Really sad it was a great app. Maybe if more people post they will fix it. 1/5
Negative review Hate the "word of the day" by anonym
I use the app frequently, however, I hate that I get "the word of the day" every morning. It wasn't bad when I could turn it off. I haven't uninstalled yet, but I contemplate it every morning when I get the notice. Thumbs down. 1/5
Negative review Forces word of the day down your throat. by anonym
I used to like it. Now it forces word of the day with no way to turn it off. I am uninstalling this app right now. 1/5
Neutral review Ok by anonym
Nice app....useful too....but 2-3 problems.... 1) requires really really good connection 2) takes way too long to load (start) 3) force word of the minus 2 Stars ;-) 3/5
Neutral review Ugh by anonym
I started using this one because premium wasn't kept up to date.. Now you update premium. Guess I'm going back to that one and I just wasted money on purchases for regular version. 3/5
Neutral review It's OK by anonym
What I don't like is I upgraded to the medical dictionary in hopes of finding out better explanations of issues in our bodies, like I wanted a thorough description of what ovarian torsion is, I really don't want to go to WebMD for all that. If it's a medical dictionary then it should have well deep discussions of all medical issues. 3/5
Negative review Word of the day by anonym
I don't want word of the day. I originally opted out of it. Now I am receiving word of the day and cannot turn it off. May uninstalling the app if I can't opt out. Bummer. 2/5
Negative review No More Word of the Day by anonym
Since you chose to override the push notifications to turn off Word of the Day, I will be deleting this app and using a different one. It's too bad, too, because I really liked this app before. 1/5
Negative review No option to shut up the word of day by anonym
Until I can find a way to stop the word of day notifications and make the app shut up, one star. 1/5
Positive review Nerdcore by anonym
The only thing I would change about this app is to add a daily crossword puzzle. My life would be complete if that were to happen! ? 5/5
Neutral review Can't stop word of the day by anonym
I've disabled push notifications but yet I still get a notification for the word of the day. I can't find a way of disabling it. 3/5
Negative review It was perfect, but there is always a "genius" who feels the need to "improve" things by anonym
I WANT THE TRANSLATE SHORTCUT INTEGRATED INTO THE DEFINITION, as it was before. Why should I now have to wander around AND RETYPE THE WORD to get a translation? Of course, no note in the changes about this... If you don't think it's important, LEAVE IT UNTOUCHED --- UPDATE : 1 month later and still the same crap. Luckily for me I can install an older version. 1/5
Positive review I love this app! by anonym
I love the word of the day! I, too, was having problems with the push notifications. After contacting them, the fix is to turn the push notifications on then back off. That worked for me! 5/5
Neutral review Tempted to uninstall by anonym
Last update has overriden my "no push notifications" settings and I am receiving the highly annoying "Word of the Day" notifications. I find this an invasion of my privacy. Please change this. 3/5
Positive review No premium available - more's the pity! by anonym
Having had the email version for quite some time, I immediately installed the Android app. However, the premium version is unavailable in this region and more's the pity as yet again our US cousins trump us with the formidable array of applications at their behest. I suspect some of the issues noted by others may be due to this deficiency. 5/5
Negative review Used to like it by anonym
Until I got non stop updates about the word of the day even though I have all my settings to not notify me. News flash I could care less!! Change the settings to where we can disable the word of the day and this review will switch to a 5 star. 2/5
Negative review Slow. No way to turn off word of day by anonym
Under settings, there is no option to turn off Word of the Day which springs up on the notification line y day. 1/5
Negative review by anonym
I don't like it when an app forces me into something. Example: word of the day. I can't turn it off. Therefore, I'm uninstalling this app RIGHT NOW!!!! 1/5
Neutral review Lacks consistency with Origin by anonym
Origin is not available for words that should obviously have an origin listed. Also I don't like that I can't turn off the Word of the Day option. Otherwise I like the vast array of words. 3/5
Negative review Can't turn word of the day off by anonym
Decent enough app, but can't turn word of the day off, despite the claim in the app description in Google play of how to do so. No response from support after contacting them either. Pretty disappointed. 1/5
