  • Really Good and helpful

    I used many dictionaries, and finally decided to pay for one because the free dictionary that I have been using for years doesn’t give me detailed English explanation and I cannot see what words above or under the word I am looking for(I couldn’t get a whole view of the dictionary. When you look up a word in a physical dictionary, you can also see other words next to the word you are looking up). This one obvious looks like a dictionary with all the related above and under words showing at the left. Every word has its synonyms, antonyms and derived words. On the above right corner, it tells the types of the words. Anyhow, it looks simple concise but has everything I need. I am happy with it. One suggestion: I cannot set automatic enunciation. I have to click on the button. I wish when I look up a word, it automatically pronounce it. Every app has to try to eliminate the need for action of human’s fingures.
  • Great content for two decades, now in a fabulous App

    These WordWeb dictionaries (pure WordWeb Pro in this case) are basically an exceptional replacement for the built-indictionaries in MacOS. The content is very well organanized, and the interface is up-to-date with the latest improvements in MacOS. As far as content, it does not get any better than Oxford and Chambers. Of course it would be amaziang to have the entire Oxford English Dictionary, but that license is impossible to obtain and would cost $1,000. But for everyday use this is a fantastic set of products. If you have not looked, check out the other offerings by this developer. I have used these WordWeb softwares for 9 years (since 2009) before they were on the App Store. They are truly excellent for writers, academics, and other researchers. Fast, efficient with good content. (I am also putting this review on the other WordWeb App Store products I own, because they really are part of an integrated product.)
  • Does not work…A WASTE OF MONEY

    It doesn't work. It's a waste of money
  • STILL no audio

    Couldn’t help but notice a more current version 3.5 available here, not long after I’d posted a 2-star review. I of course installed it, albeit with fingers crossed. Don’t get me wrong. As mentioned perviously I've been a WordWeb user for many years on another platform but could never justify the $$ for the little use I made of it there. Once I saw it available on the App Store here I thought it time to do what I could to support Anthony Lewis. I only wish this v3.5 would have functioned the way the dev designed it to. It remains the only, and I mean *only* app I invoke (or website I visit) to be totally without of one of its’ more elegant offerings: hearing the pronunciation of a word in addition to its meaning. I’m on macOS Sierra (10.12), Anthony, with no immediate plans to upgrade to High Sierra. C’mon, I know you can do it!!
  • Excellent Product

    I have Word Web Pro on my iPhone 5S and Mac. The interface is simple and useful. I like the pronunciation. This makes learning and using English easier for me. This product deserves to be even more widely used. I have been using the free version of Word Web on Windows PC for a decade and like it. To make Word Web more powerful, I added the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary on the Mac and the Chambers Dictionary and Thesaurus on the iPhone.
  • Makes writing a joy!

    I purchased this a few minutes ago, and immediately was impressed with the clean interface and the fact that all the dictionaries and thesauri are integrated into one interface, making this app an awesome addition to my writing needs. But more than that, I use Scrivener for writing and am constantly trying to find an alternate word, with this app I can put it in a split of the full screen with Srivener on one side using 80% of my screen and this app using 20% and I can simply select and copy a word to the pasteboard and the app automatically updates with the word selected. Huge time saver!!! When I saw that I had to write this review! Thank you!
  • You will not like this if you like the PC version

    By U84six
    I was expecting to get the same features that I love with the FREE pc version, so I figured I’d help the guy out and pay for this version. Unfortunately, it does not work like the PC version. I actually use the PC version as a spell checker as well as a dictionary for any selected text, and it works really well. If the spelling is wrong, I know right away because the definition isn’t listed. But then there’s a list called “nearest” that usually highlights the actual word I’m trying to spell. The problems with the Mac version: - No keyboard shortcut to pop it up a the system level (i.e. within any app as well as the OS UI). - If you have a word selected in a text doc, website, app, etc, after launching WordWeb, the selected word is not already loaded. You have to type it in all over again. If you want this type of functionality, don’t bother with this app.
  • It used to be good but now it locks up

    By itommac
    After doing a search with a asterisk* at the end and looking through the various definitions in the results it locks up at some random point. So if the patern matching isn't reliable I might as well just look it up at an ordinary dictionary or an online dictionary. .
  • awesome simplicity!

    This is a remarkable application with so much more to offer than the built in dictionary app. The interface is simple and inconspicuous and fits neatly on my desktop next to the application I'm working in for easy and quick access. I also bought the Chambers Thesaurus and Dictionary and they both plug into WordWeb for cross referencing. Great to have access to all three under one app. Highly recommended!
