    "Best in the line"

    April 22, 2013  |   By tiniloy

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    Easy, with audio pronunciation tool. Sits decently on the taskbar. Also gives synonyms and some popular Proper names too.

    Cons

    Better ways to be Ecofriendly: During renewal they asked me how many times I had flown that year. It was the only year since childhood when I had flown twice and I clicked twice because I thought it was a nominal question. And my account could not be renewed because they said I had left carbon footprints. I think they are doing well in creating the best paperless dictionary, they should think of other ways than to discontinue accounts.

    Summary

    They could also add other language dictionaries or translation/transcription tools. I was looking for French to English.

    "Everyone should have it."

    March 20, 2013  |   By Aliaus

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    I often use the thesaurus when you just cant find that right word. I find it very easy to use at any time.

    Cons

    I have to open it to use it..... thats it.

    Summary

    for spelling or thesaurus, its user friendly, compact, up to date, and of course its free, what more could you ask for.

    "Spectacular quality for a free dictionary"

    February 20, 2013  |   By ahnand123

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    Awesome database, almost instant search and a bunch of other cool twiddly add-ons.

    Cons

    Very few. The database can be a little limited at times, and the program doesn't stay up to date with modern slang.

    Summary

    All-in-all, an excellent deal. I will probably be buying the full version soon.

    "This could have been good"

    February 19, 2013  |   By keeblr97

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    Easy word lookup. It was easy to select a word to lookup with ctrl+right click.
    If you mistype/misspell a word when looking it up it gives a list of closest words to what you typed.

    Cons

    Antiquanted UI. The 90's called and said they want their UI back. This is really sad b/c the UI on the mobile version is pretty good.
    Free version for PC is limited to 30 days. However, if you fly less than once a year you can continue using it for free. ***? I hope this is a joke the developers put in. The mobile versions are still free. I guess they do not like PC users.

    Summary

    Don't waste you time because you might actually like it then have to uninstall it if you fly to often.

    "There Whenever I Need It!"

    February 15, 2013  |   By bffy

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    Great for desktop, as well as, devices!
    Whenever I'm doubtful about a spelling, I can check it out with ease, and I can find out if I'm using a word correctly.
    If I'm tired of the same ole words, I can find out a word or two that I can substitute for the word I usually use.

    Cons

    I'd enjoy being able to cross reference offline. (Other than that, it does a wonderful job.)

    "Really useful"

    February 7, 2013  |   By fberthelemy

    Version: WordWeb 6.8

    Pros

    Easy to use and very comprehensive. For a foreigner, being not a translation dictionary, it allows a better understanding of the word under scrutiny.

    Cons

    For a foreigner, needs a minimum level of English language practice, being a "one-language" dictionary.
