Ratings and Reviews
Weird app, possibly a fake or virus
I already have the original ldoce 5 and it constantly pops up a dialog box telling me to "upgrade now!". So i have found this app which says it is the upgrade and I would receive a free upgrade. Weird behavior anyway. But I downloaded it. Just a blank page with small picture of the dictionary that told me that an InApp purchase was necessary with two weird buttons - buy and restore. I clicked on the Restore button, which asked me several times to provide my apple password. I did so, nothing happened, only new password prompts. This is reeealy weird. I did changed my password immediatelly and hope I am mistaken and the app is really just not working. Be careful.
After the last update to version 7.1.2 the app crashes immediately after the start on iPhone 6 (iOS 9.3.3). However, it works on iPad mini with the same iOS. Weird...
Really useful app
LDOCE is one of the best English learner's dictionary app I have ever used.
