  1. words that go together

    Hello there, I often come across words that go together. For example, efficiency and effectiveness, performance and productivity, rapport and relationship. They are not synonyms. They could be collocations. I had a look but could not find a site that provides such a service. I use 'Power Thesaurus' everyday. Would it be possible to provide that service. If it is not possible would you be kind enough to suggest some solutions or sites that provide them. thanks and regards sajeer

  2. Wikipedia support as a new category other than synonyms, definitions, etc?

    Like the ‘https://www.thefreedictionary.com/’ app- I’m not sure how difficult it is to add wikipedia content (on your end)- but in words that have a Wikipedia page it would be cool to be able to have that as an option separate from the definition.

    This is my favourite dictionary/thesaurus referencing app/website by far! I don’t want to have to go between it and the others if possible ;) hahaha (as long as it’s not too hard on the developers end that is)

  3. The ability to add personal ‘tags’ to our glossary please!

    On words that we have starred, it would be amazing to be able to add tags so we can organise them based on what they’re relevant to us for. Some dictionary apps/websites have the ability to add words to a list, which is good, but it would be cool to have tags like ‘adjectives’, ‘political’, ‘emotive’ etc and then filter the results so some aren’t lost.

    (What i mean by ‘lost’)
    So for example, ‘lost’ within a big list of adjectives I’d like to remember, etc.
    Or, if I save my favourite words for art analysis, some of these may…

  4. Allow us to add to our personal glossary on the app version please!

    I use the ios app- I noticed (i think) I can only ‘star’ words as my favourites when on desktop. It would be really cool to be able to do this on the app too! Thanks :)

  5. Please please focus on the quality of the results

    I'm an old user for PowerThesaurus where I use it to get fancy words for my research papers since English is NOT my first language. However, It is very clear that the quality of synonyms the past couple of months is getting worse. It's like Trump is suggesting the synonyms for me.

  7. Please return the search bar to it's 'type-and-go' interface.

    Bring back the way it would auto-select the previous searched word, so when switching quickly back and forth to search multiple searches, and tabs, you don't have to go through the extra trouble of erasing the previous word, to search the new one.

    I keep searching frankenwords, and hate having to 'ctrl-a' every time I switch pages. As a writer, it ruins the flow.

  8. Help to understand how strong a word is

    It would be really useful to know how synonyms are sorted in their "seriousness". Sometimes I'm just not sure if the word is too strong or too weak to use.

    Having some system (labels, numbers) to know would help.

    For example, I would arrange from weakest to strongest:

    Sympathize > Like > Adore > Admire > Love

    Chilly > Spooky > Worrisome > Scary > Dreadful

    The new version which supposed to be online within a few weeks will have an opportunity to have an account with just one ad unit, search history, suggested terms and ability to mark synonyms as favorites moving them to the top for this user.

  10. Add personal glosary.

    I want to be able to create a list of words that I've searched for.

    It could be a simple list, containing only the terms without any additional info, but they must be clickable, so I could easily search again.

    I also would like to be able to download that list as a simple .txt file OR to be able to copy all terms in the list at once.

    I often find myself searching for the same terms, so an option like that would be really helpful.

  11. Create an API for other applications to talk to PowerThesaurus

    PowerThesaurus needs a standard REST API for basic CRUD operations, so that other apps and services can talk to PowerThesaurus. Something like this:

    https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis/ubiquitous-fortnight/PowerThesaurus/1.0.0

  12. Option to filter out profanity

    There should be an option to filter out profanity.

    If someone is using a thesaurus, don't they want to expand their vocabulary, not become more lazy by resorting to swearing?

    Either way, making this an option would be good.

  14. Add a way to clean search history.

    Essentially the recent search history, while I'm aware goes away with time, is still clutter, especially if I want to keep Chrome open with the tab open. I'd like if there was a button of some type, or a SHIFT+DEL type of keyboard shortcut, where you could delete all or individual search history results you no longer need. This is important due to the fact it eventually starts clogging the results, making it hard to find certain words. Ideally, I'd like to think an option to simply not save search history would be nice as well.

  16. Support "quiet" extensions like Tranquility (if offering ad-free subscriptions is too much trouble)

    The 'unobtrusive' ads in the browser version are actually quite distracting to me. Happy to pay a small monthly fee, but if you could set your pages to display synonyms when quiet reader extensions are invoked, that would suit me fine. Currently, when I turn on Tranquility in Firefox all I see is the count of synonyms and a copyright notice. If I have a way to see results without ads, I promise to donate.

  18. Additional definition for the word "grinder"

    People who apply the hacker ethic to improve their own bodies with do-it-yourself cybernetic devices or the introduction of chemicals to enhance or change its functionality.
