Customer Reviews

Very quick, intuitive, and accurate

I really like the audio pronunciation, the illustrations they have for the entires, and the bookmarking. So far everything I looked up had audio built in, and example even sentences. Other apps have those features, but the speed with which I can jump into the App, look up a definition, hear the audio and go back to reading my book is amazing. I used to use WWAudioUS - but that is extremely slow and some of the definitions made no sense. It helps that this app is from Oxford, so I'm not left wondering whether the definition is accurate or not.

Add more entries

In terms of entries I like the merriam webster. What I do like with this Oxford dictionary is the pronunciation especially since you can access it without the internet connection. If you could add Biographical and Geographical entries this would be great. I also observed that a "fast d" pronunciation was included like for example for the word "better" instead of just using the consonant "t" you were using the fast d. How about the silent "t"? like for the word "interview" since native americans pronounced this as "inner-vyu" instead of "inter-vyu". I do hope you could incorporate this kind of pronunciation in the future update.

Excellent sound!

I like it. There are a few things they should improve. If I type a word the cursor should stay there in order to type a new word and look up to the next word. Also, you should add a Verb Table option to each verb in order to click there and visualize the verb in different forms which can help us to be sure how to use it.
