    I really hate the light text font. unreadable. highly annoying. not getting any better for sure. not even an upgrade for readable version. this never will be a usable app til the design is changed.

    Great app! It is so valuable to be able to nurture your vocabulary like a great garden. Being able to express as well as understand in language the intricate details of the spectacular universe of the human mind is one of the greatest contributions to a fulfilling life.

    I love this app. I use it almost every day. I love the word of the day also. Can't say enough good things about this. Once I get to the site, I stay awhile checking all the other things they offer.

    Pretty good app. Wide variety of definitions, and the learner's and rhyme functions are helpful. Thesaurus leaves a little to be desired, though.
