    Great !
  • Surprisingly limited number of words

    By franklinis
    I paid about $17 for this app— more than I ever have for an app—because I remember liking the print dictionary a lot and have been frustrated by the limitations of free or low-priced app dictionaries. Sadly, the very limited range of words included in this Oxford dictionary has made it all but useless. When I can actually find a word, I like the definition just fine. But it has far fewer entries than the free Webster’s I’ve been forced to return to, despite that dictionary’s terse, bland and broad definitions. I almost never find anything vaguely slang-y here (which I’d hoped the “American” part would cover), nor any mildly technical word I happen to run across. Does Oxford think “American” is synonymous with “rudimentary?” I’d really like my money back.

    Great App! Has been a life saver for me.
  • Kept bothering me for a review

    By Dan:el
    Very annoying. I’m also disappointed that I purchased the MW dictionary for the iPhone a while ago, and now I have to pay for it again because they simply deprecated the app and rolled out this one. The app itself is trivial. It’s the words I’m buying. They should have enabled me to upgrade to the new app for a small charge.

    Good covering, practical examples needs audio pronounce
  • Little improvement

    By Junior_student
    If the bookmark icon can be added to the upper right location will be more convenient. Besides, the words library can expand will be good. I hope the app can add a pronounciation function for some junior school kids. Thank you for your kind attention. Regards
