Easy to use!!!
Not that good 2/5
Ads always coming up and 9/10 times I use it, it gets stuck in a loop with no search option - just delete or bCk to home
Below standard, no trial version
Okay but... 2/5
The app is okay as dictionaries go but the vendor shows a lack of professionalism by shamelessly soliciting shares and reviews for the app on the opening page even on the paid version. I will likely look for a replacement soon.
The Choice! 5/5
Clear language, clean readable typeface, price is right, reputation for quality, derivations included...tells what is needed
I don’t recommend this app 1/5
I thank this is the worst thing I downloaded in my phone
Lacks word found in the Shorter Oxford version 3/5
Why pay more for less? I regret upgrading. The word that provoked this review is “conium”, the genus of the poison hemlock.
It is found in the shorter version. John
You call me back call call if 3/5
Not so bad but it’s still good
Too much irrelevance 2/5
By Bk bookworm
The site offers useful advice about meaning and spelling, to say nothing about word origins. But the Notifications are totally worthless.
A growing 💎 4/5
The best there is, keeps getting improved.
not the best 3/5
The word of the day is usually pointless- words like father and eyelid.
Approximately half the time I look up at work the dictionary does not include it. Takes a long time to open sometimes. Otherwise, it’s an OK Choice for a Dictionary.
Poor, mist of the words of the day are appropriate for age 5-10 at best,, or non-words like “girl guides association” which may be the name of an obscure organization that few adults would have exposure to.
OED, You can do better than this.
The definitions and examples are excellent, however the app jumps around without your input, very annoying, don’t know how to fix it
I have purchased this app for my iPhone and upgraded to premium for $19.95. Yet, you want me to pay again for the upgrade on this iPad. That is unjust and a rip-off. Please correct this.
Too Cluttered 2/5
All I want to do is look up words. Word of the day should be an option. Don’t send me anything!
By Lita duong
Not sure. 2/5
This app Ui is not good.
Comments about the dictionary. 5/5
This is a wonderful famous dictionary. Every one will be benefited by this especially the students.
Needs App Integration 4/5
Wish it integrated with messages and writing apps.
New Download 1/5
I recently purchased the full app with no ads. Unfortunately, the volume for the pronunciation of words does not work. This app is terrible.
Great app with hideous icon... 1/5
It must be 2007 because no one designs app icons like this anymore. Consult Merriam-Webster or Dictionary.com’s app to know what an app icon should look like in 2018.
Great Restaurants In San Francisco... 5/5
By Katey D. O'Toole
Super Lobster was delightful. Fisherman Wharf...delightful...
Take the whole family for a delightful time. Top the day with
a visit to Gheradeli Square..Buy some chocolate there...for delightful taste, then top off the day the day with a visit to Union
I don't like this app 1/5
So many ads. Just use the website
Sound is not work 3/5
I bought premium but sound is not work
Not as seamless as it could be 3/5
The user interface is a bit clunky—the app shuts off randomly at times as well.

At Last 5/5
By Colo. Pops
At last A usable Dictionary that truly is usable. So far, this is an easy to use dictionary offering the features I need.
Dictionary Ox of Eng 5/5
By S.R. Mike
This once worked very well, now it flashes the definition then jumps to pushing add for more products. When dictionary is selected it holds the definition about 3 seconds then back to ads. Very frustrating.
Exactly As hoped-for 5/5
By Hanoi Family
This is the complicated version of the gold standard. The definitions are accurate, of course, and, the opportunity for in-app purchases is discreet. No Pop-ups. yet...
Even pronunciation cost 19.99 Dollars! 1/5
By Time trip maker
Too amazing for that prices, are you serious guy?
Awful design and starting layout 2/5
When you start a dictionary application the first thing you should see is a DICTIONARY. The app shows a crappy overcrowded page. Unusable counterintuitive counterproductive.
Not worth a fraction of the sale price. 1/5
I wanted a true OED experience but what is offered is less robust than most free dictionaries. Complete waste of money.
Lang Hoch 5/5
By Lang H.
I bought an Oxford Advanced Learner dictionary at first and found out that was for beginning level of non native speakers. So I was advised to check this one. I used and I like it so far for the way to present the words explanation; somehow, the sounds are a little awkward to me, which might be my preference of British English. I am not sure for that I can trust the pronunciation. Otherwise, it is easy to use.
Oxford dictionary 5/5
The best app ever
Needed: “Contact the Editors” button 4/5
The original OED was put together not by the Oxford philologists alone; they corresponded with English-speaking word-watchers who sent in their findings, enabling the Dictionary’s editors to fine-tune matters such as a word’s first appearance in the language; etymology; shades of meaning; etc. (One of the most zealous contributors was said to be someone serving a life sentence in a British prison.) The ability of speakers of any background, social class, or occupation to contribute helped make the OED
The online OED provides an opportunity to advance the study of these aspects of the English language in a depth of detail not previously possible.
But where is the “Contact Us” button that should let online readers send in their own observations? To a greater extent than many other languages, the English language constantly grows and changes, extending its tentacles into emerging disciplines and new technologies. Its evolution is nurtured by scientists, poets, parents, and car mechanics. It’s an absorbent language, able to mop up useful terms from foreign sources.
Because English is so dynamic, people most likely encounter written or spoken words that they don’t find in the online OED. This is why they need to be able to query the online OED about such encounters.
Many such reports or questions would likely be duplicates. To deal with these, a FAQs section, linked to the word(s) in question and/or arranged alphabetically, could be useful.
* Language is not unlike a slime mold, whose behavior in sink drains led the great neuroscientist Eric Kandel to his insights on neurodevelopment.
Your app 1/5
The words you recommend i dont need it at all , they aren’t that useful that they should be. And it’s so annoying that we can’t have the sound an pronounciations without premium account! It IS necessary.
Don't update 1/5
By Bruno Flausino
Since I updated this dictionary, I don't have access to the sounds anymore. I can't just believe that..... They want me to pay again! DO NOT BUY IT, AFTER SOME MONTHS YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY AGAIN!
Great! Wish it had North American Accent! 4/5
Please add North American accent!
Oxford English Dictionary application 4/5
I use it frequently however have needed to also install an American dictionary as this one does not contain many of the colloquial terms I want to find.
Very Good Dictionary 5/5
This is a very thorough, concise dictionary for every day use. I also like the other apps that I use with it, like talk and speak...
Very impressive and educational dictionary. Thank you gentleman for a job well done. Kudos to all of you.
I like this version
Not the best 3/5
The keeps indicating that there’s an 1 new notification but there isn’t any and can’t clear the red number 1 upon closing the app.
Won’t Paste? 2/5
By Feral Film
Whenever attempting to cut-n-paste a word into the dictionary’s Search field, long pressing in the Search box brings up the standard “Paste” option, but tapping on that has no effect. Of note: when using a hardware (Bluetooth) keyboard, typing [Cmd][V] pastes perfectly well.
(I’m using a brand new 9.7-inch iPad 6th generation, on which Paste works fine in every other app I’ve tried. I also have the Android version of this app on a phone, where paste works as expected.)
