I've used a lot of dictionary.com on both my web browser and iPhone, and It's been a great tool, I was excited to find it as an app on my PC, but the app will crash everytime I open it, they need to get it fixed and better tested before they make it downloadable.

Love the android app - this windows 8 app is horrible. It crashes so often it is unusable. Yes, I know I can use the search charm, but really, is it too much to add a search box within the app to tap on? In it's current state it is useless.

It sometimes crashs when I open it

I can't stay on the app for even one second. I get kicked out, unwillingly. I can't use it anymore.

The app crashes shortly after starting. I think this is because the license for the Bing maps part of the app in no longer valid. On that part is an error message show shortly after the launch of the app.

Just installed this on my Surface Pro 3 and the app force-closes as quickly as I open it. I doubt that they'll even roll out an update for it anytime soon. Smh.

It keeps crashing upon opening. Until this is fixed, I will (and you, reader should too) find a different dictionary app. I am very disappointed with you, dictionary.com. I really like your dictionary and thesaurus website and wanted an app. Well, turns out, it crashes upon opening all the time! How am I supposed to find definitions and synonyms/ antonyms in one app? I hope another app has this function otherwise I'll just have to get two separate apps. SEE YOU NEVER AGAIN, DICTIONARY.COM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. The only reason I gave this stupid app a one star review is 'cause I have to. If I could, I would give it a NEGATIVE 5-STAR REVIEW!

for a couple of weeks now it closes right after it opens.
25 January 2015
I am using Windows 8.1 and the app keep crashing. Please fix it.

As with everyone else that has encountered this problem and has written a review about it, when will the bug be fixed?? The app opens and within seconds, it closes. There is no ability to keep it open to search for any words. The app on my phone and PC works just fine, it's only the Surface Dictionary.com app that is the aggravation! PLEASE FIX!

I installed Dictionary.com on my PC running Windows 8.1. It will not open. Screen appears and then program closes. I have restarted Windows. Same result. Suggestions?
I try opening the app once installed on my computer but it shuts down meaning window closes please fix

I have this app on my phone and use it all the time. I'm not suppose to have my phone during class so I decided to download the app on my HP! This app will not work! When I open the app it stays open until I click in the window and from then on it will open and close immediately after! This is very annoying and disappointing! I hope they fix this problem soon!
The app closes within 3 to 5 seconds every time that it is launched. This makes the app completely useless. I am switching to another dictionary app, and I hope that it can actually be opened.

12 January 2015
Unfortunately I was unable to actually use this app, because it crashed upon opening.
11 January 2015

6 January 2015
I can't even get this app to stay open it just keeps minimizes itself.
5 January 2015
Everytime I open the app, It is open for 3 seconds and then closes. I can't look up anything that I want to know. DON'T GET IT!

App installs, but when I try to open it, the app quickly closes before anything can be done in terms of allowing or blocking something I could not read in time, and before the app fully opens and is ready for use. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the same results. Finally gave up and opted for another dictionary app and a shortcut to dictionary.com on my Desktop.

This app will not open on my new surface pro 3. It blinks then goes to the start screen. No problem on other devices. Any ideas?

Love this app but now crashes when I try to open it. Will update review when fixed.
Keeps crashing. I will keep for a while, but if not fixed soon, will uninstall

The app won't even stay open for more than a few seconds before it closes back up again. I really enjoy Dictionary.com, but I think their app needs to be fixed.
