    I think the Favorite section is outstanding, able to group your vocabulary for personal review; however.. it gets deleted upon the app’s update!! Big Bummer.

    I’ve been using this dictionary for years without a thought, but it can be great for discovering words and phrases. Dictionaries are embedded in quite a few apps, but the Oxford Dictionary of English is best if you want a more immersive learning experience.
  • No Auditory

    I paid extra for this version as I wanted the correct pronunciation of words. The auditory does not work. I have the latest update installed on my iPad. Without the sound, I feel I have wasted the extra money that I paid just for this feature. This was a very important feature for me.

    I use this app regularly. I wish that the “word of the day” brought up less everyday terms and offered, instead, vocabulary that would be required of doctoral students.
  • The BEST

    Please improve your search algorithm and the algorithm in general (it takes three or four times the amount of time to load up on my SE) as well as remove that stupid other apps by the developer button on the top right corner I'm sorry but how can i care less about what other apps you've developed I'm here for the bloody dictionary. ALSO: please have a button that both RETURNS to the search bar and CLEAR the search bar
  • Perfect App ever !!!
