Ratings and Reviews
Disagree with awful above
I have found the Oxford Chinese app to be extremely useful with none of the issues mentioned by the one star rating above.
This is by far the worst app I have ever tried to use. Completely unusable. Pop up ads that you cannot close abound. Full screen commercials start running with no way to close them. Really disappointed in what I used to think of as a reputable company.
When you look up an English word, the Chinese translation doesn’t include the pinyin, so you can’t look it up, or even pronounce it unless you’ve memorized all the Chinese characters. And in that case you wouldn’t need the dictionary.
