–“A tasteless tactic I would not have expected from Dictionary.com.”
It is worth mentioning that I have PAID for a few extensions offered by Dictionary.com.
Shouldn’t that be enough to quell the bombardment of full-screen ads?
I loved Doctionary.com.
It was my favorite referencing tool as it operated quickly and was easily navigable. Now, I have to completely close the app and restart a new search altogether due to the FACT the ads are PURPOSELY designed with the “close” button off-screen.
I regret spending money on the extensions and my finger is hovering over the “Delete App?” button.
I have used this app for several years and have watched the quality deteriorate to the point I have now deleted it and will look for something else. Locks up. Quits. Ads have sound that I cannot find a way to turn off. Once an add appears the app does not display properly and you have to close and reopen. Many thesaurus entries are simply repeated lists. What looks like many entries is often just the same words repeated. Terrible quality control and the ads with sound—deal breaker. Instead of driving me to pay to get rid of ads it has driven me away.
I use to use this app all of the time. I even considered buying it because of it’s usefulness. However, my eyes are not what they used to be so I cannot use this app anymore. Other apps have implemented a Dark Mode theme which solves my problem. Dictionary does not have a Dark Mode so I cannot read the screen. I keep it on my phone in the hope the developers include a Dark Mode in a future version.
I paid for the premium “power pack” version. The app kept crashing one day so I deleted it and reinstalled it. Well, I no longer have the premium version since it reverted back to the free version with ads. I contacted dictionary.com but no response. Basically took my money with no customer support or solution provided. Very disappointing. Makes me quite angry to be honest.
Your content is excellent and interesting.
Please consider reformatting your articles so that they do not appear like one huge block of text. This is very difficult to read on a mobile divide.
Please include paragraph separation and meaningful white space to make the articles flow as they were written.
I liked Dictionary & Thesaurus very much. Purchased Power Pack but received none of the components. Tried many times to download them but never got them. Wrote to Dictionary.com a week ago. Never got a reply. Make the Power Pack available or credit my iTunes account!!!!!
The app used to be awesome, but then I used it once when I was playing Scrabble, and the app kept shutting down. I don’t know if it’s my now phone, but it was very annoying. Besides that, it’s amazing. The definitions are clear and easy to understand. (Almost) All good here.
I wanted to download this app because it is my go to website, but it barely even works. Every time you search a word the app completely crashes. Also there is no need for so many adds, it is a dictionary. I will definitely delete this app and download a better one.
I found that some health and chemistry terms lacked definitions even though they come up during a search term. Those that did have definitions were vague. If your a science/health student, go for Webster’s Dictionary instead!
Advertisements show up too frequently. Even when looking up a word or two, a video starts to play. Sometimes it interrupts what I’m listening too. Disruptive when trying to just get a quick definition.
