Ratings and Reviews
Superb English Dictionary
I choose the Oxford English Dictionary because I have used the hard copy for years up to and including the multi volume complete Oxford. Though expensive for an app, it simply provides the best coverage of the English language, as well as many useful examples to support definitions. I found the embedded request to review the product very irritating, especially after paying so much for the app.
I would have rated this much higher had it not been for the continuous NAG SCREEN pushing me to rate it. Well, you wanted a Fu€KING rating, here it is. I do hope that you’re happy!
Truthfully, I’m a tad burdened at the fact that my real, ACTUAL, gigantic, bound, OXFORD ED. dictionary has words that this application DOES NOT!!! It’s an app, it SHOULD HAVE MORE words than the limited paper bound version! But this application falls woefully short.
Had I not been nagged, I’d given this app a much higher score. If measured on the word availability and usage, a score of 4.5+ would have been left, and if the score were based on content, I could only (in good conscience) have left a 3 stars.
But, (as I look up words that most people might never even consider searching for), this app is an excellent reference for a large part of the populace. The average/above average, or even superior level intellect will likely be very well served by this application, even as flawed as I see it. So, enjoy!
Reliable and Easy to Use
I have always used the Oxford dictionary since I was young. I remember the big, blue book we kept in our sitting room, to which we would refer all queries for new words and their meanings. This app takes that deep trust relationship into a new era.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
