This app is garbage and you shouldn't buy it

tml_mpls

The original version was great. I actually spent the full $20+ to get the full version believing I was making a good investment and - embarrassingly - spent that again when I inexplicably lost access to the original purchase because I'd gotten such great use from the original. Probably should have seen that as the ominous sign it was and cut my losses, but so it goes. The new version feels like something designed by a child. I do NOT need to see a pop-up asking me to rate the app every time I need to look up a word. So now this is being deleted after 5+ years on the main screen of my phone. Posting this review in the hopes that someone learns from my mistakes. Stay away!

A rating because the app bugs for a rating

A coerced review is always less favorable than a voluntary review. The only thing I don’t like about this app is that every time I open it, it flashes a screen asking for a review. It’s a stupid and annoying practice of the insecurity and lack of professionalism of the otherwise most excellent app.

I bought the full version without ads. I think the content is accurate and helpful. I use it as a dictionary, and not much for the word games it offers, which are also fun and helpful.

But bugging people for a review is annoying and unprofessional. Stop it Oxford!

Worth the money

BEST dictionary app out there. As an English literature major, this is the only dictionary we are allowed to cite because of how credible it is.

If you love words, want to learn more words or simply need a reliable dictionary (available offline, whenever!), then it’s worth the investment. I got it when they had a $10 sale so you could always wait for that to happen again if you don’t want to fork over the full $20.
