    Hi Thanks a lot for reminding me to continue my study.
  • Free version is painfully ad-ridden

    The quality of the dictionary is superb, but there are so many ads when trying to search word definitions that become obstacles and sometimes even force you to wait 5 seconds before being able to close the ad, which makes the app almost not worth it. And out of principle it seems wrong to succumb to buying the full version because it is simply forced upon you through frustration rather than offering something more. Very disappointing, and will probably have to stick with Webster’s free app which is lighter on the ads and offers some of the premium features of Oxford like audible pronunciation.
  • Thank you!

    Great app and convenient to use. The only irritation is the opening page with so many unnecessary choices. Wish it opens into the main page. Hence 4 star
  • My Favorite App!
