    “Alcoholic” on 11 Aug 2018?! Are you kidding me? Since when does this feature present rudimentary words? Not impressed. I thought the Oxford dictionary editors had some pride.
  • Sound only through headphones?

    Of course, it’s the Oxford Dictionary, so it’s one of the best. The app is easy to use and the entries seem to be comprehensive. I find it odd, though, that the only way to hear the pronunciations is with headphones. Why not through the phone’s speaker? Strange.
  • Real English

    This is the dictionary that all should use. Because of the Norman invasion of Britain, many French words were adapted into English as words originating in Latin and those i if the Viking. To substitute the original spelling of some words is not true English.
  • One of the best dictionaries for native speakers

    I must say that this dictionary is one of the best I have ever used. It includes not just the definitions of the words, but also the usage of some of the words that are commonly doubted.
  • Nice library, but too expensive

    This app is very convenient and it has a lot of words. However, an ad pops up every time you open telling you to "Rate 5 Stars" which isn't honest business. Also, I personally think the ad-free version should be maybe $2.99 TOPS, not ridiculously high like $15.
  • It’s oxford but also annoying

    I like the fact that it has the difficult words I look up, but the interface is annoying, the definitions are too brief, and the ‘word of the day’ is either a ridiculously simplistic/common word or some irrelevant phrase. Very disappointing. Nothing to make me want to pay for premium.
