  • Oxford Dictionary

    By Rafique Keshavjee
    Easy to find a word, clearly and succinctly defined. I miss the full etymological history, with amazing quotes in which the word is to be found: in short, the full OED. Where is it to be found?
  • Great app

  • Annoying

    By 1AcGh
    The persistent pop-up window asking me to rate the dictionary five stars is truly annoying. Equally annoying is the fact that I have to choose a nickname to submit this review.
  • Tops! Cleans up Americanized English

    Is there anyone who thinks the Oxford Dictionary is worth less than 5 stars? Whatever complaint you have, is a plastic knife up against a Samurai sword. Benz2222.
