Pros and cons of Dictionary.com app for iPhone and iPad

Dictionary.com app good for

I dont have much time to review this app so ill keep it simple, IB english was never this understandable
The cool thing about this dictionary is, you can listen to the correct pronunciation of a word. This app has helped me in what could have been an embarrassing moments
Very good and useful app. I use everyday. I even upgraded not to have ad. And example sentences.
I first downloaded this app for basic word search and out of pure curiosity. Then I the light !! Lol this is a great a learn a new word almost everyday and the correct pronunciation I recommend it if English is not your first language.
Doesnt consume too much of ur battery, easy to use, clear explanation, remembered ur previous search. Totally recommending this
Concise and precise. I always found everything I was searching.

Some bad moments

If youre planning on buying their upgrades (which are great and useful) to use them on your iPad and iPhone, forget about it. Their products are distinctly good, but if you ever try to retrieve these upgrade purchases from your account, its not gonna work. I bought them all on my iPhone and tried to retrieve them on my iPad and it just doesnt get it (even with the same account, same user, same product...). Tried to get in touch with their support a month ago. No response. A pity such a great product and such a poor support!
Yes, the dictionary is good, however the marketing tricks are malignant, it even put one under preassure to get red of ads, does not work in portrait position with the keyboard. I would like Itune to look into the legality of this app. Again a good app has been damage by its marketing Methode. Gasim 2016 And no Chance in the Mode of Marketing, Itune dont know?
And why does everything thats supposed to be a part of it cost $3 extra per item? Ridiculous
Even the simplest words cant be found. The "did you mean..." function also doesnt work. Please fix this. The only good thing is that you can download the dictionary for offline use.
This app is very easy to use but the information it provides is inaccurate. I would consistently ask for definitions in order to clarify word meanings and found the information provided took me a step back rather than a step forward. The final straw for me was the definition for conundrum. From now on, its the OED only.
