Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By Androow

    Stupid and backwards

    This app is a random assortment of words that you get for free, the rest is apparently $14. Why not just charge a modest amount of money up front instead? Who wasted their life to choose what words were free and which ones weren’t? Dumb.

  • By jacrocke

    Should Have Read the Reviews

    Save your money. The first word I looked up, "numinous" does not exist in their supposedly 140k word bank. Disappointed in CALD. If it has to say it is advanced, then maybe it really is not.
