    This app is great, a wonderful place to learn about English words. Could you please add iPhone X support too? If would be a much greater experience to have full screen on the X!
  • Suggestion for new feature

    By Danh Nguyen 1993
    It is their very good dictionary. However it doesn’t have a feature which is called “quick search” that enables users to look up a new word while they are reading a book in the PDF file or in the Kindle app without switching back and forth between the dictionary and the ebooks . Please add this new feature. People would be more appreciated for this new feature and they are also more happy to pay for the app. Thank you so much.

    Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary (OALD) is the essential app for anyone learning English. English is my second language; naturally, I have foreign accents. I use this app to ditch my accents and master English. I especially like the two audio pronunciations, British and North American English, and their audio enunciations are excellent. There are some sounds that I find difficult to articulate;therefore, having both two audio pronunciations and enunciation key symbols are extremely helpful to me. Also, I LOVE the clear and high quality audio sentences; no other dictionary apps offer this unique feature. I utilize this app’s favourites feature and save the words to study them and practice pronunciations until my foreign accents have been supplanted with native accents. This app runs really fast, and smoothly and syncs beautifully with my Apple devices as long as I use it online. Best of all, I can use this app both online and offline so I can access it from anywhere at any time without having to rely on Wi-Fi or cellphone airtime; additionally, both audio pronunciations and sentences work either online and offline. This app is an excellent dictionary for anyone learning English. This app helps me to avoid hurdles so I can master English faster and become a native speaker. I love this app! I have made this OALD app as my constant companion. I carry it with me wherever I go. I live with it! I am truly GRATEFUL to have this precious dictionary app. Thank you to developers for this extraordinary and awesome app!

  • Nice and you need to fix the favorites issue

    I like it , The logic says: if the word in my favorite the Star (with the plus) should be turn gold so when i look the word up again it tell me that word in my favorite and it shouldn’t be tread it as a new word! Also it doesn’t sync with iCloud! Suggestions: - I hop to link the dictionary with the google translator so the user can choose his mother language and show the translation of any word I enter. - please make the word list in the favorite movable so i can move the word up and down. - please allow me to import my own list. - Idioms button not working! And all hyperlinks as well. - I need to write a note on any word! - make me to listen to the word voice in the favorite list without entering the dictionary. - we need the number of words next to the name of any folder in favorite list. Thanks
  • I’m still waiting for updates!!!!

    Since I have bought the app, I know that there are some bugs with the app about which I told you, and for which I was told through email that the problems would be gone by a coming-soon update! The big thing is that when you push the idiom, phrasal verbs, ... buttons, they don’t work!!! You promised to rectify that!!
