App Reviews

  • OED

    By JohnnyFry1
    OED is, of course, the definitive dictionary of the English language and finding it available for iOS was a real thrill. I use it nearly every day to check on words I run across reading, something I seldom did when I had to go to the bookshelf. Wouldn’t be without it!
  • Ugly synthesized voice

    By Raxxal
    Ugly synthesized voice combined with the British accent . I regret I bought this app
  • Great dictionary!

    By Nyakono
  • Ok app. Buy upgrade??

    By MagicPobept
    Oxford obviously has one of the top dictionaries; that is really undisputed. However now they want you to buy a $19.99 upgrade to a “premium dictionary”. It is an excellent example of greed. And of course the Oxford Dictionary app I bought previously no longer works on iOS. Classy Oxford, real classy. 🙄

  • Best dictionary app in my opinion

    By kcs513
    Better than any other dictionary app I’ve tried!!
  • This is a scam

    By kendradog
    The (real) Oxford English Dictionary is one of the great English works of any kind. This app, however, is simply a fraud. Its App Store title claims it is the "Oxford English Dictionary", but defines only a fraction of the entries in the real dictionary. Hilariously, the app itself demands I rate it 5 stars, and is permeated by tacky ads. It is irritating to see the great work of the OED demeaned by scam artists. I don’t know why the OED publisher puts up with it or why Apple allows this app to be so dishonestly marketed.
  • Stop the pop-ups

    By Dave McA
    Being nagged to give a five-star rating —. all the time — compels me to give a one-star rating.
