"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
In my life, and in my life’s work, I have long labored with speaking, writing, and when preparing factual reports of important incidents and events. It has always been my effort to convey my thoughts to others, official or otherwise, succinctly and with utter accuracy. In the process, I learned a wide vocabulary is the foundation for providing clear focus about any occurrence whether it pertains to personal issues or creating official reports for myriad purposes. Making it a point to accomplish this, I purposefully delved into dictionaries and thesauruses not to impress and amaze, but rather to be exceptionally lucid and to provide a view of things in their true and relative importance. Hence, I endeavored to make use all media that enhanced my vocabulary. While there is always room for improvement, I take satisfaction in knowing that my store of words is ample to bring about accuracy to my spoken and written words. I owe much to Merriam-Webster involving this persistent activity, for it has served me well.-SonnyFio

|Has an encyclopedia||Can't switch between thesaurus and dictionary in new version|
|Simple and pleasing layout||Has bug|
I tried reinstalling the app. Now instead of tapping 3 times in the search box to get my keyboard, it's twice. Hurray for progress. But now, after closing an ad, clicking on the tabs, definition/thesaurus/etc. reveals just a blank area. Subsequent searches are also blank. I have to restart the app for it to work but still when an ad happens (which is ridiculously too often) same problem.

This is a good reference app, but I think it should have one more thing that is missing for those who buy at least the Plus version, which is something I bought. The encyclopedia is somewhat more interesting to me than the dictionary, so a user who buys the Plus version should be able to copy the text of any encyclopedia article to save it for off-line reading. I think that would be reasonable for those who have bought the Plus version.

Black mode for AMOLED screens would be most appreciated, as opposed to dark grey... also black mode for the widgets, please? Thank you! Word of the day at apps main landing page has plenty of room to include the definition, then we could click to learn more but at least we could see the definition at a glance. Also just a note about the new widget, it does not fill the widget size area properly, there is a lot of empty space above and below it with the buttons looking smooshed. Hope that helps!
