    Every time I start the app it shows an unnecessary splash screen for three seconds, then I need to click a few times in order to begin searching for words. The first click is to bring the focus to the search box. The second click is to click on the x to remove the current text from the search box. This app could be much easier for users, by enabling the app to open and put the focus on an empty search box, ready for text! Additionally, it would help if the user didn't have to select English or Russian, perhaps the app could determine which dictionary to search in based on the characters used in the search query! Also the word of the day thing is a joke for me. It gives me an ENGLISH word of the day rather than a Russian word of the day. Talk about anglocentric!
  • Could be much better

    I use this app because it’s an app, and my other, more complete resources are books or websites. On one hand, it’s handy for what it is. It seems to have quite a few words. On the other hand, it could be so much better. Eg, it could have the keyboard related to whether you do English->Russian (English KB), or the opposite (Cyrillic KB). There is no reason to have to select both. For some reason I often can’t easily get rid of the previous word typed. The interface just doesn’t work as efficiently as one would hope (sometimes seems better than others). But the thing that is most unfortunate is that declensions aren’t included. So you can end up searching for a word for which you don’t know the nominative/dictionary case, and not easily find it. Maybe this would just be too big, but it’s something to know and a negative when web-based options do do this. So plus side: handy, Oxford-based; minus side: word lookup clunky, words not declined.
  • Still Inferior

    By Vaughn J. Mantor
    Still inferior to the original Oxford version on my iPhone 4, which I still use for the dictionary. The current software company dropped the word forms that were available in the dictionary itself. Very disappointing. Makes my work harder. The previous versions would detect the alphabet being used and automatically switch to the right language. Not this one. The “Help” section is worse than pathetic. The screen design now looks cartoonish and is more difficult to read, and it is poorly organized. I’ve paid for the same Oxford Russian–English dictionary THREE TIMES as Oxford switched software companies, and the product has gotten worse each time. Oxford, if you’re listening, refund my money or bring back the original.

    Either I really haven't learned any Russian using this amazing dictionary (which is totally inconceivable!) everywhere from American language classrooms to the back rooms of Russian archives, then the poor reviewers here haven't really used it. I have loved and trusted this on/off line dictionary since I started learning Russian a decade ago. Why? Again, it has stood by me and been the most reliable around the world for language exams, archival translations, and everyday encounters. Better than Google Translate, obviously, even when I had a Google phone. Yes, it would be very very wonderful if your initial purchase grandfathered you into subsequent free updates, especially for a poor college student. And of course all dictionaries need to be taken into consideration with others (e.g MultiTran and WordReference and REAL RUSSIANS). But the cost of this dictionary has definitely been worth it for me up to this point. It's simply the electronic version of paper dictionaries most professors continue to use today (multiple editions of which they encourage students to buy) even if they won't admit it!

  • Don't delete previous versions by accident

    By Refund my account!
    Overall a good resource, but if you accidentally delete the app and a newer version is available, you have to buy the new version and lose the money you spent on your first purchase. So far I have had to purchase this app twice due to newer versions becoming available and am glad there is a free version now. One Star for Oxford greed!
