Glad for the updates

Grateful for the updates to make this compatible with new iOS and new iDevices. This was an expensive app when I bought it. Unlike other dictionary apps that I bought that were also expensive (eg Shorter Oxford English Dictionary) this one continues to update for compatibility while the other ones no longer work on newer devices.

Still the best

I purchased the Oxford Deluxe way back in the day and although it was quite expensive, it was a worthy investment. It's still the best and most comprehensive dictionary & thesaurus app. Thankfully, it's still updated on occasion and looks great on my iPhone 11.

Reaquire the ODE & OTE licenses, please

This app is awesome! I’d really love to see it come back to the App Store full time.
