Inane words of the day 2/5
The specific reason I got this was for the word of the day, but theirs are terrible. Who would have “David Beckham” as a word of the day?
If you want it as a dictionary, it is fine. It’s just that the WOTD is pathetic.
its best vervuseful 5/5
By mehran maleki
Very good 5/5
Great app 5/5
For those tough study nights, Oxford English Dictionary has your back!
My old,new and forever friend 5/5
I love it
Bloated, slow and cumbersome.
Great Tool 5/5
As an editor and writer and bibliophile, a dictionary is a must have. Why not have access to the best dictionary the English language has to offer?
By Sydney Greenstreet
Is the app 19.99 a week,a month,a year,
my lifetime or your lifetime?
Need to know
Great app 5/5
I love the talking part of this app. It tells you exactly how it is pronounced. Very helpful
Who doesn’t know what kite flying is? Teach me actual words. 3/5
I’m not learning any new words lately. It’s all names of places and/or putting two simple words together like today: kite flying. I mean duh!!
No one is perfect 3/5
Try to be better
Font size is too small, etc. 3/5
Font size is too small. Why not go the extra mile and make it easier to read? Also, an alert keeps popping up (the number one in the red circle) and there is no message nor anything is flagged. Come on!
Every day, you offer a new word. But it’s almost always the name of an object that is, in my opinion, fairly well known. How about offering words that would enrich a reader’s capacity to express his thoughts and feelings?
Great app, when it works 4/5
I used the free version for months and it worked maybe 50% of the time. When it didn't work I would just get the busy spinner and the home /search page would never load. I'm hopeful it will load 100% of the time now that I bought premium 😂
Bad interface 3/5
User interface could be improved
Product great, pricing deceptive 4/5
The dictionary is superior. However, the distributor, Mobisystems, seem to expect payment for the “premium” version on each iOS device on which it’s installed by the same account holder. That’s a non-starter. Until they change this deceptive practice (they mention it nowhere, and “restore purchase” functionality only works on the “original” device) and end their extortionate price levels, I’ll use it on the one device and not deal with it further. Caveat emptor. You cannot pay once and use the app on both an iPad and an iPhone.
I have changed the rating to 4 stars, because there is still some trouble getting the app to restore purchases on additional devices. It required deleting the unresponsive download and a new download and installation.
Also, to be fair, the developer did respond to my original derogatory review by email, which sat unread on an unused server for six weeks. Their instructions for restoration, clearly well-intended, were not helpful. I had to fiddle further on my own. On the basis of the app itself and the product, this deserves a 5-star rating. An app that carries the brand “Oxford” however should not be flawed in terms of fulfillment in this way, I believe. I misjudged initially. There is no deception.
Oxford dictionary 5/5
The words of the day are too easy. Also, why include names or proper nouns?
Definitions Do Not Appear 1/5
By West Point '99
The app returns a blank screen rather than any definition.
As so many others have previously commented, the app does not provide the definition of the queried word.
It seems that most days, the word of the day is a fairly common, a word that I already know. Other days, the word of the day is a place or the name for an inhabitant of a place. I got the app to improve my vocabulary, not my knowledge of geography.
Best dictionary ever 5/5
Great App 5/5
All should have it.
Excellent resource 4/5
Excellent resource to have offline on the phone. I wish the audio pronunciations were of better quality. I hope they continue to improve this application.
Dependable college dictionary 4/5
I like the feature that introduces a word for the day. A number of them are not part of standard usage, but nonetheless a welcome prod for those of us who don’t read widely enough.
oxford Dictionary of English 1/5
A terrible edition - the “free” version is worthless. Use any old print dictionary instead.....
Too many ads!!! 4/5
It had too many ads ! Everythin was fine with it except the ads
Pure, to the Point 3/5
By Human Rights
This app can be much better. It often does not recognize legitimate words. And I cannot get the audio pronunciations, even though I have tried to get them many times.
Quick way to lose $20 1/5
I did an all update and now I lost my subscription; I am being asked to pay $20 again. Wrote to the developer and nothing. Stick to the free version
Great dictionary 5/5
Quite useful, but let’s have a few less proper nouns in the word of the day please. I love the pronunciations and the root words. It helps meaning to stick a little bit better.
Great Resource 4/5
By george 10345
This app has helped me a lot. Thank you for your updates
Opportunity missed. Disappointing word of the day 3/5
The Word of the day is a great opportunity to expand my vocabulary but it is disappointing to find mundane and pedestrian choices displayed. Today's word is vacuum packed. Before that, thrill seeking. Odd choices. Otherwise, Oxford delivers on definitions and etimologies. It is the best dictionary in the world.
Not at all user friendly 1/5
...and changes screens without prompting. Very annoying.
I loved it until... 5/5
... the update. I can't look anything up now because my only option is to pay $20 to obtain definitions through that app. None of my searches have actually provided a definition for some time now. Deleting it. Looks like I'll be going to Google from here on out. ✌🏼
By Spiral Geronimo
I expect Oxford to be complete. If you read foax like T. Pynchon and D. Foster Wallace you need app that is wide and deep. And examples of usage are a necessity for something with the Oxford imprimatur. The purchase options don't grab me.and now for some reason it’s......real......slow.
Most Trusted Dictionary For English 5/5
I absolutely LOVE this dictionary. I value it above all others.
Fairly nice resource 5/5
Oxford, in my opinion, is the best literary resource to be able to have at ones fingertips. I would like to see these giants of research offer more technical information on a free basis.
Good app 5/5
Found all words!
Good content, interface is cluttered 4/5
By Brian W. Davidson
Four stars because the interface is cluttered and they constantly prompt for 5 star reviews even though I’ve already rated the app.
Good enough for a an english reading assignment. But the ADS are like any other app so much annoyingly
Working issues… 3/5
Doesn’t seem to load definitions quickly....often gives me a blank page when I type in a word. Not a useful dictionary in my opinion.
Although, the pronunciation feature is super nice when the app is working.
Great Dictionary in digital form 5/5
Awesome in every way. I use this multiple times every single day. Well worth the small charge over free options.
Oxford, Dictionary of English 5/5
By Mrs. Twit
Oxford is great and has definitions of all most all the words you ever will need. It has parts of speech, synonyms, and usually the origin of the word or its roots, as well as its use then. This is great for everyone, and I have been using this dictionary since as long as I had this device.
It’s Oxford 5/5
What could be better?
