    This app has no clutter: you want a definition and that's exactly what you get. The definitions are precise and clear (they are based on a good dictionary). Most of the time it also gives synonyms, antonyms, phrases and, less frequently, the origin of the word. The app is fast and also has a clear interface. The programmers did an excellent job!! 👍👍👍

    I paid about $17 for this app— more than I ever have for an app—because I remember liking the print dictionary a lot and have been frustrated by the limitations of free or low-priced app dictionaries. Sadly, the very limited range of words included in this Oxford dictionary has made it all but useless. When I can actually find a word, I like the definition just fine. But it has far fewer entries than the free Webster’s I’ve been forced to return to, despite that dictionary’s terse, bland and broad definitions. I almost never find anything vaguely slang-y here (which I’d hoped the “American” part would cover), nor any mildly technical word I happen to run across. Does Oxford think “American” is synonymous with “rudimentary?” I’d really like my money back.
