    The reminder to rate is obnoxious. Please remove it.

    I am a tutor and recommend this app to my students all the time. I especially like how it tells my students how to pronounce the words with the voice feature.

    The one thing for me that could improve this app would be the ability to copy definitions I want to add into a document. Other than that, for me this is a great dictionary...

    New means missing words found in other dictionaries.
  • It’s fine, but it keeps bugging me for a review. So fine.

    The data in the app is perfectly accurate, so that’s good. But the app keeps bugging me to review it. So fine—here’s a blasted review, you belligerent goobers. Look, if you want access to the Oxford American Dictionary, this is the way to go. I just wish that they weren’t such impatient weasels about begging for reviews.
  • A good solid dictionary
