Oxford Dictionary of English app reviews

  • Sound only through headphones? 5/5

    By JeffFreemanPresents
    Of course, it’s the Oxford Dictionary, so it’s one of the best. The app is easy to use and the entries seem to be comprehensive. I find it odd, though, that the only way to hear the pronunciations is with headphones. Why not through the phone’s speaker? Strange.
  • Real English 5/5

    By Chef Lambie
    This is the dictionary that all should use. Because of the Norman invasion of Britain, many French words were adapted into English as words originating in Latin and those i if the Viking. To substitute the original spelling of some words is not true English.
  • One of the best dictionaries for native speakers 5/5

    By adriancyps
    I must say that this dictionary is one of the best I have ever used. It includes not just the definitions of the words, but also the usage of some of the words that are commonly doubted.
  • Nice library, but too expensive 3/5

    By Salvation in Acts 2:38
    This app is very convenient and it has a lot of words. However, an ad pops up every time you open telling you to "Rate 5 Stars" which isn't honest business. Also, I personally think the ad-free version should be maybe $2.99 TOPS, not ridiculously high like $15.
  • It’s oxford but also annoying 2/5

    By another grad student
    I like the fact that it has the difficult words I look up, but the interface is annoying, the definitions are too brief, and the ‘word of the day’ is either a ridiculously simplistic/common word or some irrelevant phrase. Very disappointing. Nothing to make me want to pay for premium.
  • McBri 1/5

    By mcBri31
    Very challenging. Bought the premium and see no added benefit.
  • My opinion 5/5

    By Mr. kick
    Very accomodatingp and accurate.
  • Oxford English Dictionary 5/5

    By Spin drift
    This App is easy to use. Very clear definitions Meets all my expectations, Very comprehensive. Word of the should be more challenging.
  • WORTH THE RANSOM 4/5

    By BIGGER TOM
    $20 worth eliminating ADS!
  • Clunky software 2/5

    By Richard in Stevens Point
    The “in app” dictionary on my Kindle works more easily and doesn’t keep asking me to rate it.
  • Audio Pronunciation Feature doesn’t Work 1/5

    By jimmy tokyo
    I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and rebooting the phone. A major reason for buying this app and it doesn’t even work. What a waste of money.
  • Oxford English Dictionary 4/5

    By D. Hill
    The Oxford English Dictionary application is a solid resource for those who want to look up the definition of a word. Along with the meaning users will also receive derivatives of the word such as an adverb or some other example further illustrating the intent of the definition. Users can also save words they like as favorites and access word of the day which can be helpful to broadening one’s vocabulary. The app offers additional features in the premium version such as audio pronunciation but the the standard model does a good enough job for those who just want a mobile dictionary in hand.
  • Oxford English Dictionary 1/5

    By lec 47
    I paid for the premium version of the dictionary but now I cannot get the audio at all .
  • Etymologies, Please 3/5

    By Abie's Irish Rose
    I miss more complete etymological information for the entries. Please address this issue. Etymologies provide us with foundational data on the meaning and history of the words in our language.
  • Don’t upgrade if you PAID for old version! Or you will have to buy a new copy. 5/5

    By mumblerX
    I’m pretty unhappy that I had a previous paid version that was downgraded when I updated. Now, I need to pay again to get full version and no annoying ads... come on it’s a dictionary, how much has it changed since I bought it that I owe another 20 bucks for basically a new skin on it. Obviously I value a dictionary, as well as the I have extended a extended version on my Computer, as well as printed volumes.
  • Great dictionary, but... 3/5

    By StephenD~
    This is a great dictionary but it is a little clumsy to navigate and doesn't let you swipe back to the previous word you had looked up. It also loses a star for constantly pestering me to go to the App Store and rate it five stars. Very annoying. I also wish they would put in • in the words to break them down into syllables.
  • 希望能加入同义词功能 4/5

    By qwer2002
    希望能加入同义词功能
  • Disappointed with the most recent update 2/5

    By Male User 27
    Not a fan of all the updates changing the layout of the app. Personally, I like the original much better. However, the app still served its purpose. The reason I am giving this two stars is because with the most recent update, all of my favorited words were deleted, ALL OF THEM. This is extremely frustrating as I have invested a lot of time adding and developing that extensive list and with one update, it all gets deleted. Seems like whoever manages and administers these updates is more concerned with the superficial aesthetics of the product instead of the functionality and maintaining certain features that kept the consumers using the app. Probably going to transition to Merriam Webster’s app following this update.
  • A review 5/5

    Great
  • Oxford English Dictionary 4/5

    By Cpcaro
    I have only had this for few days, so liked it so far. I am almost 90 years old and vision is not very good. This is easier than messing with a large book.

  • Outstanding app. 5/5

    By Jill467514
    Fast, easy, and useful.
  • Derivations 5/5

    By froggy sue
    A good dictionary like this with derivations at the end of word entries really help to paint the picture of how the word come to be. Therefore can understand the word better.
  • Far too many touches needed.... 1/5

    By AgeingGator
    ...to insert a word to be defined. Disappointing.
  • At Last 5/5

  • Too many bugs 1/5

    By Bob Sundance
    There are so many bugs with this app that I cannot begin to describe. Just forget it. There are much better dictionaries out there, even in terms of quality. The word definitions are poor and the thesaurus is limited. It was a waste of money.
  • Word of the day=useless 3/5

    By bystander 
    word of the day few days ago: jake (not even capitalised), yesterday’s word: Sherlock, today’s word of the day: james, stuart
  • Pronunciation stuff 3/5

    By grn-maple
    The big online brother, the OED has American pronunciation as well as British pronunciation. That's important to me because I don't want to come across as erudite. For the price it should have this feature or perhaps an American version should be available
  • Oxford Dictionary is great! 5/5

    By gooseandsquirrel
    Very helpful and very fast and thorough !!!!!
  • Give me my money back! 1/5

    By The Month of February
    I was sold for $10 to have an ad-free offline English Dictionary with audio pronunciation. After paying $10, I found out the audio pronunciation was bugged (wasn’t working). I tried uninstalling then reinstalling the app to see if the audio pronunciation would work. Huge mistake. There’s no clear way of restoring my purchase of $10 and now it’s asking me for $12?! Looks like google is the one true god. An ad-free offline English dictionary (with audio pronunciation) is too good to be true. Google is free and offers many other services and tools. All google needs to do is have an offline dictionary mode and your app loses its usefulness. Give me my money back.
  • Trash 1/5

    By slider。
    The dictionary can not pronounce word. I try to connect the developer. No answer!! Trash!
  • useful 5/5

    By rmb44
    i paid for the ad-free version, and consider it money well spent. the dictionary is comprehensive and easy to use, though i'm sometimes thrown off by the british accents and pronunciations. highly recommended.
