  • Problems with the apple watch

    By Amirroooosad
    A great app...but It seems the apple watch application needs an update as I receive an error on my apple watch indicating it has a problem connecting to the iphone.
  • Great dictionary but...

    By M.Laali
    The app used to open to the OALD tab, the search part, but after the latest update when I run the app it starts with the Catalogue tab, which is kind of annoying since I use the dictionary quite often on a daily basis. Please change it back to the previous mode. Update: Removed the app and installed it again. It fixed the problem but my Favorites are gone. 😞
  • Great

    By fuirious
    Much better app than the ones from Mobisystem. I like the layout, and the inclusion of Phrasal verbs and idioms (is tedious to have several apps for each thing). I have a request: please show the keyboard upon launch! Much quicker to search in that way. Thank you.
  • Problem with iPhone XS MAX

    By Bu Shamis
    I’m using this app since long time even after the update to version 9 I bought the update Now since I have my iPhone Max it’s not compatible with it and can’t restore the paid app Plz fix it for me
  • Please adapt to iPhone Xs Max

    By jensica
    It’s a great dictionary app but it doesn’t fit the newest iPhone xs max screen
  • App disappeared

    By MizMM
    I don’t go into it often and today I opened it and it was demanding $32 and hiding any sign I ever owned a prior version
  • thx for the fix

    By abaaron
  • OALD8 data will still not download.

    By Bad Push
    One of the best apps. New terminology which comes into everyday usage as a phrase is added. The depth of the idioms in common usage is one one of the great strengths of this app.
  • Great application, but still having trouble downloading re-downloading OALD8 and/or OALD9

    By embracedana
    This is by far the most useful dictionary out there for learners of English and for anyone who wants a clear and accurate understanding of lexical meaning regarding the English language. The design is fantastic and the varied uses exhaustive, along with other great features like the phonetic variants of NAmE and British pronunciations. I am still having trouble with downloading the dictionaries also. I am currently located in China and even with a VPN, I am having trouble downloading it. I thought it may have been a server issue due to my location, but I don’t think it may be that because I was able to download the dictionary for the Oxford Learner’s Dictionary for Academic English. I am currently a TEFL teacher and this dictionary has been of great use to me. It would be great to have it available for complete use ASAP when your team updates this so that there aren’t any troubles re-downloading the dictionaries. Thanks!
  • Wonderful

    By Mohsen from Iran
    The fontes are vivid and appealing, it suggests the correct word if you misspell, the complete printed OALD has been gathered in this app, the best dictionary in the app store, sentences are pronunced offline, so powerful in looking up in phrases and idioms. Thanks a million to its developers.
