This is a lazy, cut-and-paste version of the ODE. I bought it because I could not find my old Oxford Deluxe app in the App Store. This version does not display origin meanings consistently and lacks the dates, and the thesaurus is pasted below the definitions. Where is the awesome Deluxe version I purchased years ago? The Merriam-Webster is much better both in presentation and quality.
