  • The app is pretty good. I have a suggestion.

    By Nick_El
    When I read articles in Safari browser and did the “tab and hold” on word to access the “Share” function to open the OALD for definition, texts in definition window were too small and not adjustable. I’ve tried the “Settings” in OALD but it wouldn’t affect it, the texts size still unchanged. Can you fix or make the text size adjustable, please. Thank you.
  • Restoring the app

    By Ahmadreza Pasandi
    Hi . I bought the premium version like 2 months ago . But I changed my iphone. Now that I want to use the app again , The download icon appears but when I click it , it doesn’t download the full version. It freezes at 0.0 mb .I’ve tried different networks. I’m an English teacher so I really need this app back ASAP. Pls help me if possible.
  • OALD in PC

    By Hasan Jahani
    OALD is the best dictionary that I have used. I love this part that I can hear examples by native speakers voices. I wish I could use this feature in windows based PC as well. Would you please advise whether it is possible or not?
  • Two things missing...

    By agile8118
    The app is good but the lack of these things really annoys me: - No button to copy the word - You can't change folder's name in favorites Well it happens a lot to me that I am viewing a word and then I want to quickly head over to web and search for that, in Longman there is a button that you can click to copy the word, but OALD doesn't have such a thing:( That's ridiculous that we can't rename favorites folders, imagine you have created a collection of words for months and now you just want to change the collection(folder) name, interesting enough you can't do that!
  • Not as complete as Free Dictionaries

    By Zwezir
    I just purchased downloaded and installed OALD. The first word I looked up was “monger”, which I happen to hear on the radio at the moment. I was surprised with the result “No result”. I then looked up the word in “Mariam Webster” and “Dictionary.com” apps and it was there! I’m disappointed. Try it yourselves.
  • About IOS and android

    By She Jiangping
    I have paid for oald in IOS, do I need to pay again if I use it in android?
  • Urgent inquiry

    By Tamer Hamada
    I have to questions: First: where is oxford collocations? Second: if I deleted the app and installed it again on other device , would I lose my favourites I made?
  • I cannot download the dictionaries

    By hirokeiy
    The downloads freeze or won’t start. What’s the problem?
  • Beware- Doesn’t work. And bad reviews are taken down

    By hrstktc
    Beware- Don’t buy! It will stop working when newer version is released and you’ll be constantly asked to buy and upgrade to newer version! Company ignores emails and no refunds provided! One star review won’t post!!
