App Reviews

  • This is a scam

    By kendradog
    The (real) Oxford English Dictionary is one of the great English works of any kind. This app, however, is simply a fraud. Its App Store title claims it is the "Oxford English Dictionary", but defines only a fraction of the entries in the real dictionary. Hilariously, the app itself demands I rate it 5 stars, and is permeated by tacky ads. It is irritating to see the great work of the OED demeaned by scam artists. I don’t know why the OED publisher puts up with it or why Apple allows this app to be so dishonestly marketed.
  • Stop the pop-ups

    By Dave McA
    Being nagged to give a five-star rating —. all the time — compels me to give a one-star rating.
  • Great Resource

    By Archerwi
    I use this app whenever I am unsure of the spelling or meaning of a word. Accurate and easy to use.
  • A good dictionary

    By Phil695
    I use this app every day to look up an unfamiliar word or check my (erratic) spelling...
  • Great until last update

    By Gsanta1
    Great app until the last update. Now it is unusable; all it displays is a white screen. Once this is fixed, I will update my rating. Thank you for the great work besides.
  • Helpful

    By Huzilda
    Very convenient and easy to use. Very useful and quick
  • Was Great But Alas…

    By WaltFrench
    Before OS11(?) this was a fine dictionary. But I reinstalled in on my new iPhone and now it often hangs when I have an iffy connection. I may pay for the version with an offline (downloaded) dictionary but this is frustrating whenever I need a quick lookup
  • Ads

    By I am Scott a
    The app is fine, but paying for no ads and there’s an ad right in the middle of the home page is a little galling.
  • Well done

    By ParhamNYC
    A thorough dictionary
  • I bought this year's ago

    By Furrawn
    I should not have to pay for it again. This is stealing. Certainly not appropriate behavior for Oxford. We should only have to pay for this app ONE TIME Not matter how many versions you come out with. It costs you NOTHING to allow existing customers to get updates. Shame on you. You should make profit, but this is profiteering when you make this version not work for previous buyers. I'll be getting a different dictionary and just use Oxford when it's my trusted hardback Oxford dictionaries.
