    Pretty darn good

    Search is buggy sometimes and daily word should be a live title then this will be five stars!

    I used to comment that it's 'The best among dictionary apps for wp8 so far.' The problem of loading daily word seems to have been fixed after my previous review. However, the dev should consider updating this app because this app crashed when I was searching for certain words. I had to select those words by scrolling down the list instead of typing them out on the search panel. Besides, there's no pronunciation button for daily word. The WP edition of this dictionary is far too inferior compared to its counterparts on other mobile operating systems.

    It's a one of the best especially in giving exact and clear meaning. The only problem is that it doesn't have offline pronunciation. I'm a foreign learner I need voice pronunciation in my country Wi-Fi hasn't been widspread as modern countries. I wonder if in the following update add this feature to it. By the way I'm an English teacher from Iran.

    Very good, pronunciation of words would be nice.

    The App is really good and has the only drawback - it requires internet connection (even without pictures) so I can't use it in the subway, for example.
