  • (2020-01-15) Leask Wong: I liked it, but it does not work anymore on the latest version chrome browser.
  • (2019-12-12) Sang Woo Park: It's magic.
  • (2019-09-06) Alejandro Mayoral Baños: I am wondering if the synonym feature is now fixed? I cannot make it work in Chrome or Mac.
  • (2019-05-28) Rok Petric: Happy that I have found this app, very useful!
  • (2019-05-03) Phúc Trần: Can you make a mobile version for phone?
  • (2019-03-24) Amy P: I love this app. I am a medical writer/editor and this app allows me to quickly check terminology against Google Scholar. I do have one suggestion for the developer: it would be really nice to be able to click on examples in the search results and be taken to the actual article.
  • (2019-03-13) Eliezer Steinbock: I'm a developer and I need the control-space shortcut for other sites I use. Writefull overrides this and the only solution I've found is to disable Writefull to use the other Chrome apps as I desire. This should really be fixed. If there was a way to disable or customise Writefull shortcut that would solve the issue.
  • (2019-02-17) Philip Kigo: It is a useful app, works very well. However, if you are using GNU/Linux, the desktop app will not have the ability to use /say for pronounce. If you need that functionality you'll have to use it on google chrome. Very useful for students and professionals.
  • (2019-01-16) jaume tarradas: Pretty useful. As a non-native english speaker, this helps me find out the best and correct way to phrase my writings.
  • (2018-12-03) John Ren: Always want something like this. Hope I have found this early~~
  • (2018-10-31) Hari Prasath: Powerful tool. But the synonyms feature doesn't work for me. Cannot figure out why.
  • (2018-03-02) Cường Trần: Love!!!!
  • (2018-02-24) Luis Ángel Ramírez Hernández: NO option to remove shortcut Ctrl + Space Unacceptable to clutter chrome with irremovable shortcuts.
  • (2018-02-04) The best dictionary/thesaurus extension! It is amazing!
  • (2018-02-02) JumpinJimmy: My only issue is that this did not come out while I was in college :)
  • (2018-01-30) 姚刚: Very useful app!!! I use it a lot! I hope it could support Spanish and other languages in the future~
  • (2018-01-06) Станислав Аутлов: К сожалению есть поддержка только английских источников
  • (2017-12-29) soon-jae Kwon: This is such a wonderful app. Those who speak English as a second language like me can get a sense of English easier with this. Thank you so much!
  • (2017-10-27) Minh Tam Tran: tuyệt vời.xin cảm ơn nhà phát triển :))
  • (2017-10-22) I-Chen Hsieh: Thank you for designing such a great tool. As a non-native speaker who studies in the field of linguistics, I found this tool is very handy and powerful. I will definitely recommend this tool to my colleagues and students. I was just wondering if it is possible to add the feature about antonyms?
  • (2017-10-12) R K: Getting synonyms in context not working. Please fix it!!! "There was a problem with your search. If this keeps happening, contact us at [email protected]"
  • (2017-09-06) Jason Maskell: This app is amazing. Some great text tools that can transform your writing. I can think of many a time, where I was scratching my head - knowing what I wanted to write, but the perfect words I have in my mind, being just out of grasp. A tool like this, solves that. My only issue, is that I cannot get the synonym search to work AT ALL. It says that there was a problem with my search. Whether I click on the example, or try my own.
  • (2017-09-03) 刘一聪: 超级好用了,良心软件! 有详细说明:http://mp.weixin.qq.com/s?__biz=MjM5MjAyNDUyMA==&mid=2650496264&idx=2&sn=fbcf3eb5f88f42f3cfabefd992eef1db&chksm=bea36faf89d4e6b973c0bf7537febb77ad512c6b14202530a6a520468aee950b4fec04e02b97&mpshare=1&scene=1&srcid=12192jLfxFI0tt42rY6r6n5k#rd
  • (2017-06-30) Alexei Zakharov: The extension doesn't work. It doesn't find anything. I just go to the website directly to get some actual search results.
  • (2017-04-01) Comparison tool for two sentences (giving the occurrence % for both=) is useful, but for the other tools, I prefer Linguee or googling directly the sentence.
