    If you want to understand the nuances of how one word differs from a close synonym, well enough to actually use it in a sentence, you need this dictionary.
  • Same dictionary as built in iOS

    I am a lover of dictionaries and willingly spent the 10 for this app. It has lots of words, but little detail (Maybe I shouldn’t have expected more etymology than you get in a $10 paperback) and poor functionality (slow to respond when clicking through to read definitions of words used to define your original search term; also no way to click through on an idiomatic phrase used to define a term—you can only click one word at a time, or back out to the search page and type the whole phrase … not very hyper-text-y). Most annoying? iOS’ built-in dictionary appears to have the same words, and features, occasionally even providing greater detail—I’ve been comparing the two for weeks and found this app to be slower than the IOS dictionary, less functional, and obviously less integrated. Most complaints in other reviews were about pop ups. I share those frustrations as well. $10 dollars for an app and I should be able to use a service without being nagged.

    Ohhhh this is that gooooood dic(ticionary) Ohhh tell me more words ughhhhh yesssssssssss ugh OXFORDoxide harvardcide post imperial imperfection infinite complicated affliction!!!!!! This thang has more words than you'll ever use even for deadly grad school fools and enough to drown forever in corrected red pen 15 grammatical blood, ecclesiastical extract extinct excited ecstasy. So keep languishing limping landlord of language laughable! English is what we teach when all your relatives are dead. That's progress baby!!!!!!! This review is not dedicated to the sweet stuffy linguaphiles at scribbling and researching away at Oxford keep up the good work. Though ivory towers are ya know a little elitist but at least I understand where you're coming from?

    I am now 79 years old, and old retired professor at Yale who by God’s grace am reasonably alert mentally and stay academically active. I was brought up hearing my Dad tell me over and over again, that the Oxford dictionary was THE final arbiter for all disputes, where the English language was concerned. It was ingrained in me. So this review is written with an element of bias. One of my high school teachers often mentioned that a person’s intelligence could, very subtly, be assessed by the physical condition of his or her dictionary. If it was pristine and looked like it could fetch a good price at a book store, then very likely there was not too much to envy in the mind of the possessor of that lexicon. My Oxford dictionaries, one at work and the other at home, were in tatters even by the time I was in my forties. Then, some years ago I stumbled into the Oxford for my iPhone. My dictionaries on my book shelves could look unopened had they not been used before. I am totally dependent on my mobile phone now, not because of the phone, but because of my dictionary. 5 stars all the way! Cyrus Kapadia
