With one tap you can switch back and forth between thesaurus and dictionary, without a separate menu like dictionary.com's app. And tapping on words brings up their entry. The dictionary is super-fast and thorough, but repetitive (it checks about fifteen sources and displays them all even when they say the same thing). Yay for apps that meet my needs :P

I like the format, but many English words are not in dictionary. I found another dictionary app that works better and has more detailed definitions. This usually has 3-5 word definition for words. App always worked.

please make the Windows 8 ver., please. The Dictionary.com app & others on W8 are in such a sorry state, also integration with Bing Smart search for faster finding would be cool, too. Thanks!

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.
