I paid for this app. It’s a dictionary. Shouldn’t be complicated. Every time I type in a word, I get the definition for a different one. First three times I thought I was going crazy, but I recorded it happening. Whatever bug this is - fire your programmers and give me a refund. This is a dictionary. It shouldn’t be this complicated.

Really like using the microphone to search for words. As a native English speaker, I agree with foreign friends that English spelling was developed by people with a serious drinking problem. Also like the IPA pronunciations provided. I can immediately know the pronunciation of unfamiliar words, which can be confirmed by using the audio pronunciation function.

Takes a few minutes, keep your words fresh. Set a good example.

The app costs $5.99. After upgrading to iOS 14.5, the app pops up a screen talking about tracking and says at the top "help keep the dictionary.com app free" as part of the reasoning. As I said: the app costs $5.99. It never was free. Good enough app, but you get 1 star for lying about your reason to want to track, and an uninstall as well.
