Good app, word of the day is not updating correctly on Live Tile though. Doesn't update until I access the app. Lumia 1020, WP8

Awesome and beautifully designed. Some improvements that I hope can be incorporated. Ability to save and share searches and the ability to swap languages in the translator. Offline capability would be awesome too, but I have dictionary.com for that already.

Solid app, does what you'd want it to with the exception of the live tile not updating automatically.

Love the app, but needs a WP8 wide tile for the word of the day.

The translator is very helpful. Then I started to use the dictionary and in my opinion, the definitions are more complete, wide ranged. Now, after I've said that, WHY is it that when I try to get a translation from English to Swedish, I didn't get an English translation, but Swedish?

Currently the best dictionary app.

This app is AWESOME! Getting older has really made many of my vocabulary & grammar skills slow down so this is helping me back up. I feel smart again. Lol! Seriously though, I highly recommend to anyone that loves to learn. 10 stars from me!!

One of the best and handiest apps for a Word Fan... Dictionary, thesaurus & translator all in one! Plus, cool Word of the Day. Who could ask for anything more? :-D
