Oxford English Dictionary 2017 app reviews

  • Application Not Working 1/5

    By Iskarat
    Dictionary will not open since I updated to iOS 11. The app hangs up at the intro screen. Please update ASAP, this is my go to dictionary and I use it often. Once corrected I will rate Oxford Dictionary 5 stars.
  • Simple and Smart 5/5

    By MrSonjay
    Well designed and easy to use. For free, it's simple and efficient.
  • Please make it work with iOS 11. 3/5

    By frusrtrated reader
    Great app. The definitive reference dictionary. I use it daily. I also use the Spanish dictionary daily. Neither work with iOS 11.
  • Great! 5/5

    By Talkie McTalkie
    Love it!
  • Works as advertised 5/5

    By Moriarty52
    Great and easily accessible
  • Nikky 4/5

    By BiBitheBC
    Has continued to help my vocabulary. Excellent
  • All I needed 5/5

    By Yetlie
    As an American who reads English novels and older English texts, as well as playing Scrabble with British English, this app perfectly suits my needs. I don't see any need for the premium version, but I might buy it at some point just because I want to support this endeavor.
  • It's gone to seed 1/5

    By 00dost
    It used to be a great app. Now, it's full of bright distracting colors, pop-ups, but no new functionality. Terrible..

    By psalm33:3
    Have been using this app for some time. It's handy and helpful. Thanks to the developers who continue to offer additional features.
  • This app is garbage and you shouldn't buy it 1/5

    By tml_mpls
    The original version was great. I actually spent the full $20+ to get the full version believing I was making a good investment and - embarrassingly - spent that again when I inexplicably lost access to the original purchase because I'd gotten such great use from the original. Probably should have seen that as the ominous sign it was and cut my losses, but so it goes. The new version feels like something designed by a child. I do NOT need to see a pop-up asking me to rate the app every time I need to look up a word. So now this is being deleted after 5+ years on the main screen of my phone. Posting this review in the hopes that someone learns from my mistakes. Stay away!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Jcl 0522
    It's a great app. The only problem is that it asks you to go Premium all the time.
  • The words 5/5

    By Nateghi27
    Evrey day befor start your life ,one of the best word is written on the screen of your reciever . it is too usefull &beautiful. Best Regards Ali
  • A useful tool - I turn to it often, but . . . 3/5

    By The Anti-theist
    I am impressed with the app. As the header says, I turn to it often. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star review is the fact that I have to buy it TWICE if I want it on my iPhone and on my iPad. That needs to be fixed. Especially when charging $19.99 for the app. I'm not certain this got sent previously, so I am adding that I am indeed willing to give the app a 5 STAR rating IF it is ever released in such a way that one down load and one payment of $19.99 secures it for use on BOTH my iPhone and my iPad. Other apps do this (that is what that + sign is all about, right?); why can this app not do it as well?
  • What happened! 1/5

    By Lasher 59
    I liked this dictionary app when I first bought it. Then they upgraded/improved it. It's absolutely rubbish now. Look up a word and before you can read it the screen changes. Prodding you to buy something else. So disappointed. Wish I never bought it!
  • Dictionary 5/5

    By jeanmw53
    Much needed and The BEST.
  • Has better definitions than some other apps 3/5

    By Freefer
    Will give higher rating when (1) I can sort my favorites list alphabetically, or manually in the order I wish, (2) I can change the color scheme to anything else other than the (turquoise?) color it currently is. Other than that, I like the folders feature and the audio pronunciation feature.
  • DICtionary 3/5

    By Don't know the ending.
    Big and has many many words that you can look up. To help users, the words are in alphabetical order. Nice book but plot is very boring.
  • Very useful 5/5

    By savagebeast10
    Always love learning new words and word origins.
  • A Lexical Feast! 5/5

    By Conradnleo212
    Oh Lovers of language! Go for this handy little lexicon. As we live in an increasingly dumbed-down world, a dictionary still provides some solace.
  • Essential 5/5

    By editor and bet judge
    The best dictionary of all. I could not function without it.
  • Awkward 2/5

    By Lord Helmut
    Why do you show a list of all possible words? And the splash screen not fitting the screen nor not matching the interfere colour scheme is ugly.
  • Can not arrange favorites in Alpha Order 2/5

    By jwb45
    Poorly implemented App functions. Should be able to reorder words alphabetically instead of just chronologically. Decreases usefulness of collecting words in Favorites.
  • Had my problems... 4/5

    By Disembody Parts
    ... in the beginning after I purchased the full version. Support got back to me fairly quickly, and we got it all figured out.
  • Disappointing "Upgrade" 3/5

    By johndiiix
    Clumsy UI. Slow, and does not work in the ways that I expect. Also, the version that I had previously purchased had a thesaurus and audio, neither of which this version has. I'm not at all enthused. Three stars only because the dictionary does actually work, if one is persistent.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By BluIrish Eyes
    I love OED! I am a word nerd so I love it; it is the best dictionary ever.
  • Great 5/5

    By Tina Marie - Fly Free Designs
  • Horrible dictionary 1/5

    By LOpunny Boy
    This is Ze worst
  • Great 5/5

    By Marymayzaw
    It's very essential for me....
  • Excellent source 5/5

    By word netd
    Extremely easy to use. First-rate definitions! I use it every day. Other dictionaries they have are worth a look. It could improve by not asking for reviews repeatedly!
  • New update. 2/5

    By CleverCrown
    It's still the oxford dictionary; thus it's great, but the new update UI and light blue is horrible. I prefer the older system. It looked nicer and elegant. This looks like a second rate dictionary. I have switched to using safari.
  • Well worth a sawbuck 5/5

    By Cool Mint Creme
    The OED is the Good Book: authoritative, comprehensive and concise. The pay version is quick, slick, clean to look at and easy to use. I don't know what the print edition sells for, but 10 bucks is a bargain for this resource.
  • not good at design 1/5

    By khalid.402

    By Akv111091
  • Ads 4/5

    By Pat1944
    Way too many ads. Perhaps to force purchase?
  • Ok 3/5

    By JordanDallas
    Keeps asking me to review it.
  • Pretty good 4/5

    By Lmmo80
    I use this app a lot but there are way to many adds! It is just full of it! I like everything else about this app it is really great.
  • Good app 5/5

    By Novi Manunggal
    Good app

  • Solid dictionary 5/5

    By ElizabethKW, CT
    While I use the Urban dictionary for very current slang, the OED and this version of it are the good standard. I'm still debating whether to pay the high cost of the premium version.
  • Terrible update - nothing but adds! 1/5

    By Dbkatt
    Terrible update. Nothing but adds and in-app purchases.
  • Lame new color 2/5

    By Sh'ma!
    Settings should I allow some kind of customizing of the colors. Right now the pale blue is too bright and too light.
  • Oxford Dictionary of English 5/5

    By Keh Okus
    Once you have this Dictionary downloaded, you DON'T need to look for any other- all my requests are answered-including the pronunciation. Thanks for a job well done. Ken.
  • Great 5/5

    By Abdulgani Farah
    It's really nice
  • good 5/5

    By gallo1313
  • Useful 5/5

    By Pattyxco
    I used it during my English 101 and 103 classes and it helped me. I always found the meaning I was looking for. I totally recommend it.
  • Fabulous dictionary 5/5

    By Veryamoradi
    It's so great
  • Great as good as Merriam-Webster 4/5

    By j dudds
    Good a little too busy with all the option not as strong on ease of use as Webster but very thorough with the origins and definition.
