  • Irritating

    The word of the day is the same everyday if I don’t open it and look. I finally open the word pine snake today. It had popped up every single day since Jan 24. If I don’t open a word of the day, I’m NOT interested in that word and tomorrow I’d like to see a new word option. Don’t harass me with the same word until I open it. It’s in the history of I ever want it, or it should be. I find I avoid the app and use google simply because I’m irritated by the app. I don’t seek it out. Then within the app I can only rate it five stars. It doesn’t allow me to do a real and honest rating. Too bad I paid for the upgrade. Going to go see if Collins Cobuild has done a dictionary app yet. They have much better definitions and derivations. They never use the word in its own definition. Note the Colin’s. Cobuild app is bybthe same app developer so I don’t expect it to work any better.

    I have the dictionary app and I appreciate how clean their home screen is. This app appears to have more to offer but it just seems cluttered. Does the messy look go away when you purchase the apps pro version? Or will I still be bombarded with other ads of stuff I won’t or don’t need?
