Appreciate the support and updates.
If you’re looking for a dictionary this is the one to get I’ve had this dictionary for Very long time and I paid a pretty penny $$ for it. It was well worth every dime. I have to commend this company for the support and the app compatibility updates they give for our new devices. I believe in my personal opinion they have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Every support inquiry I have made I have gotten nothing but professionalism from their support staff last one was really a stupid mistake on my part they were very nice to laugh along with me. And yes I would recommend this to my friends and I would buy again
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.

Thanks for the continued updates
I purchased the Oxford Deluxe way back in the day & 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 and looks great on the latest devices.
