  • Would have given it 5 stars but....

    By Holmes 24
    Please make it easier to transfer (cut & paste) the information from the dictionary to other venues in the ipad. Simple tracing for cut & paste would be so much easier. Otherwise this is and excellent app with the most complete and up-to-date information.

  • Good dictionary

    By George Bellen
    Great definitions. Precise and concise. However I sometimes don’t find a word that I’m looking for. It could use more entries.

    BEWARE, there’s no audio pronunciation in the app. I try re-install the app or switch internet connection on/off but not work. I’ve already sent email to developer & waited for their reply.
  • Outrageous Rip-off

    By Neveragai
    I have got a new tablet and downloaded the premium Oxford dictionaries I had bought before. It’s been shocking to see that when I open these Oxford dictionaries on the new tablet now they show commercials and all the premium features are gone. They are asking for the premium version to be paid again. This is a real rip-off. I want my money back. I only wish I could get them negative stars.
