    Constantly, annoyingly asks to be rated even if you specifically turned off that feature in settings.

    I have owned the OED since high school, with print so tiny a magnifying glass is required. So lovely to have the definitions and derivations at a tap of my fingertip.
  • Convenient and often scholarly

    Etymology slightly less often than desired. Useful feature if uncertain re spelling is predictive choice. Nydoglover1

    I enjoy the easy access to a completely trustworthy source, but miss the entirety of definitions+thesaurus+etymology+usage examples in the old pre-dig gigantic hardcover versions.

    It is still the best dictionary you can buy.

    They have every word I ever want to look up, which is what you'd expect from the premier English dictionary. I have the actual printed version as well, but often this is better, being more up to date. I do wish their daily word notification was a little more interesting than it usually is, though.
  • Great dictionary

  • Annoying

    Orderly, spelled, definitive. Meets all my needs from A to Z. I rate this 26 out of 26 letters. Only negative is that it keeps asking me to write a review, even after I wrote one. Updating for September 2018 - No matter how many times I write a review, this app keeps begging me to write a review. For that reason I am downgrading my rating to 1 star.
