  • Do not buy

    This app will relentlessly force you to review it, even though it costs $30. I would not buy this app again. When you pay $30 for a dictionary app, it should be 100% free of advertisements, especially the type where you are forced to do the advertising yourself on behalf of the company. This app is intrusive and interrupts your work flow when you are trying to use it. Do not buy this app.
  • I use this all the time and give it to others as a gift.

    I like to be careful in my word choice and use, so this tool is great at keeping me precise, but also creative. I have a friend who is an ELL to whom I gave it as a gift. He uses the audio pronunciation to help his diction. I would give it 5 stars, but it needs an option to say the word more slowly; perhaps one slowly then once at normal speed.

  • Real English a tap away

    By captunsafety
    There are times when concise is so compressed that one paragraph almost contains a semester of advanced degree work. Oxford Dictionary helps to get one out of dense forest onto a path to a clear-away. Also, your Word-of-the-Day inclusion is an uplift. I smile to know that, after many curry dishes, I can now inquire as to whether I am eating Bhuna. Thank you Oxford Dictionary.
