I enjoyed it until those “post a review pop-up” multiplied!


“Did you enjoy our app?” Well I did. Sure, it’s not the OED (missing those great examples and very thorough definitions), but it’s fast, it works with split screen, offline. It’s a great companion to a good editor when you want to write.

That was *until* the developer started to ask me to post a review almost systematically when I opened the app (the timer to request as you said no is set to 5mn or so)! To add insult to the injury, supposedly iOS 11 allows you to stop that kind of nonsense inside the preferences of the App Store. Nevermind that, the developers found a way to continue to pop up request you to post a review, probably through a loophole.

So here is my review: Stop bothering your core base and your loyal customers! If you were a struggling little company with ad-based app, that would perhaps be understandable. But you have very well known product, and I paid for your app!

So “Did you enjoy our app” Yes, until you could not stop asking me that. It’s becoming almost unusable given the interruptions you are adding to my workflow. If you want a better review, fix that first.

What's not to like?

They have every word I ever want to look up, which is what you'd expect from the premier English dictionary. I have the actual printed version as well, but often this is better, being more up to date. I do wish their daily word notification was a little more interesting than it usually is, though.

Real English a tap away


There are times when concise is so compressed that one paragraph almost contains a semester of advanced degree work. Oxford Dictionary helps to get one out of dense forest onto a path to a clear-away.

Also, your Word-of-the-Day inclusion is an uplift. I smile to know that, after many curry dishes, I can now inquire as to whether I am eating Bhuna.
Thank you Oxford Dictionary.
