"Good to review apps"

Alec “Sandy” Mayo ★★★
"Misses a star as they`ve seen fit to remove date and publication of first use, merely narrowing it down to early, middle or late century. Misses another star for incomplete Latin and Greek origins. Definitely not as good as the single-volume 3rd edition of the Shorter, 1955`s Oxford Universal Dictionary on Historical Principles, the best single-volume dictionary the OED ever published, or the more recent two-volume Shorters. And it`s -much- shorter. :("

"You should add voiced pronunciations also the ipa chart you use for pronunciation guide is a little different than classical ipa chart you use for Oxford advance learner`s dictionary on the internet for example instead of æ you used a in this app this can cause confusions sometimes I think."

"Pros: 1) The most comprehensive dictionary app on Google Play Store. 2) Authoritative & examples used to clarify how words are used . 3) For advanced users of English, this is good for research as well as reference purpose. Cons: 1) No audio pronunciations. 2) Guidance on grammatical usage is absent. I have a hard copy- it is a 2 volume set and they are excellent and worth the price paid for."

"PROS: Excellent Oxford content. CONS: No “share” feature to select and look up words from other apps. Search functionality is very limited; there’s no full text, example or idiom search. The “smart`` search that seems to be happening only slows down the app and never comes up with anything relevant. Favorites don`t sync across devices. The interface has an adware-like appearance. In a paid app, I don`t want to see ``Invite Friends`` and ``Rate App`` on the home screen as if these were features for my benefit. The nagging ``rate 5 stars`` popup is especially annoying. I much prefer the WordWeb dictionary interface for which currently only the Chambers dictionaries appear to be available."

"One of the most Excellent Apps I have ever downloaded.. Thank you OED... People need to realize how generous this is, they are giving you a LIFETIME pass, for 25 quid, to the entire Shorter OED, that is the next size down from the volume which is literally tens of books long, and is only necessary for people for access to hundreds of obscure scientific/medical and other words which pertain to acane disciplines.. This should be an essential purchase on anybodies phone."

"I was very happy with Oxford before. But not now. I mean for free it`s just a form of online dictionary. It`s not that Oxford app I had before. And offline version costs some money. I don`t see a reason to install that. Don`t waste time there are another offline dictionaries."
