Dictionary.com is a great app that many people use on their phones. This is a great app to have in school because it will help you on those tough words that are giving you a headache and will give you a definition on the spot. Even better it even has a thesaurus. But what really makes the app great is that you can use it without being on the WiFi.
So Dictionary.com has some extra stuff to do/look at and its great adds some fun to leaning. One of these extras is the Word of the Day that shows up and has you learn something new every day. They also have a cool option to see what others are searching in the area and see what a popular word to learn is. Another extra part to this app is that it has a blog on it that shows over 800 fun language topics.
Alright so we’ve been over some of the cool things and the basics of the app but what are some good or bad parts from having this app? Well there isn’t much bad to the app in my opinion but others say some words of the days are random and pointless such as, “The word of the day is "Yom tov" Who needs to know this? Not even a word.” ~Android User. People also like to complain about the app having a lot of ads but I never seem to have as much as a problem because when I use this app to help me with homework I either get zero ads or one ad at most but that’s looking for 10-20 words. But here’s what another android user said but it’s a good response, “Love It! Love the fact that it saves word searches (recent search) even if favorite word is not checked. Love that if need arises, pronunciations are a finger tap away. This app is used for my tablet exclusively; only wish it was an automatic search while reading a book but that is an easy adjustment. Also, recent word searches can be sent to your email, clipboard or about any other method for future reference and built right in. As far as this reader is concerned this is one of, if not the best app out there.” If that’s not enough to get you to download the free app for extra knowledge then I don’t know what app you should use.
In other words I think this is a good app with a lot more than just a definition of a word. But there is a lot more to check out on the app I’ll add their description of the app for the last caption. That’s my review hope this was a helpful review on Dictionary.com and helps you decide if you want it.
