  • Quite a mediocre dictionary

    I downloaded an original Oxford Dictionary first and bought a subscription. The problem was that it supported only British pronunciation. In FAQ it was said that American version should support American pronunciation. I’ve bought this app for 18 dollars (quite an expensive for a dictionary) and didn’t get any pronunciation at all. What a bummer. Had to request a refund cause of that. I wish I checked the reviews first.
  • Home Page is Weak

    Make the home page more useful. It’s just wasted space with more ads to the Oxford translates, which Google and Apple provide for free. The other waste in home page is to invite friends, again just an ad email sent to a friend. The home page would be useful if included challenging words, or frequently looked up words by users, or a list of favorite words developed by the user. This app needs a lot of work.
  • Great Work so far

    However what really bothers me is the lack of audio pronounciation. I think it would be a great idea to add that feature to this amazing dictionary.
  • Good dictionary!!

    Very well rounded dictionary and thesaurus. They also have a printed version of the“Writers thesaurus“. It would be great if they made an app out of it.
