  • Works on my phone, can’t login on pc

    No support. First book I read I found three words not here and in dictionary.com. Not some lightweight progressive social babble words either. Can’t press on a word in a definition to look it up, you have to leave the context of the definition you are in to look up another. Just overall, not the oxford dictionary I was expecting and the support is non-existent. Stop asking me to rate it. You haven’t updated it in 11 months to fix any of the many complaints so why should we bother?
  • Good content but bad layout

    Their content is good but the layout is bad, it’s hard to see at once all the definitions, there isn’t enough space in-between. I hope they correct that soon because their printed version’s layout is much better.
  • Audio lacking at times

    Considering having audio pronunciation was one of the reasons I gave money for this, I wish it worked.

    This is a great dictionary and its pronunciation is spot-on,
  • No etymology

    Not really the oed. Missing etymology and other stats that make the oed valuable. Could be replaced with internet search.
  • Great Reference

    A great reference for those words that simply do not define themselves.
  • Oxford Dictionary

    Easy to find a word, clearly and succinctly defined. I miss the full etymological history, with amazing quotes in which the word is to be found: in short, the full OED. Where is it to be found?
  • Great app

  • Annoying

    The persistent pop-up window asking me to rate the dictionary five stars is truly annoying. Equally annoying is the fact that I have to choose a nickname to submit this review.
  • Tops! Cleans up Americanized English
