    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

    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

    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

  • Opportunity missed. Disappointing word of the day

    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

    ... 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. ✌🏼

    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.
