  • Too Heavy

    Who wants to carry that fat heavy book around all day. Hear a new word and look it up on your phone. It’s simple, light, and you look real smart.

    Oxford obviously has one of the top dictionaries; that is really undisputed. However now they want you to buy a $19.99 upgrade to a “premium dictionary”. It is an excellent example of greed. And of course the Oxford Dictionary app I bought previously no longer works on iOS. Classy Oxford, real classy. 🙄
  • Microphone not working

    I think your microphone is not working. Which ever microphone I tap on brings up the offer to pay more for a better dictionary. I just uploaded this dictionary for the first time. I hope I won’t have to uninstall it.

    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.
