The words of the day are odd. For instance, today's was white flour lol. I have the app to learn new words. Also, there is no thesaurus connected. Finally, the ads pop up while you are reading and don't go away for a few seconds. I don't mind apps on the screen, but the popup type are annoying. The pros are that it has a lot more words than the Dictionary. Com app. You can find any word on here.
For anyone curious about words--etymology, definitions, pronunciation, usage, etc--OED is definitely the sine qua non of English dictionaries. Oftentimes I stop to check everyday words I use for clarity about origin, correct pronunciation, or usage. Should be required resource for many who like to understand how they express themselves. Anyone care to start fund to donate free copies to politicians?
Effective as a dictionary and even the word-of-the day is entertaining. Two items annoy: the app keeps popping up with "Rate Later/Rate 5 Stars" (which itself maximizes the rating at 4 stars: apps should not annoy me) and landscape mode is not supported. However, having the OED at my fingertips wherever I go sure is handy!
Not what you would expect (1) Needs active internet connection to work. (2) Very aggressive advertising. Not useful unless you search words dozens of times everyday. You would better create a shortcut to Oxford search page. I'm in two minds whether to rate it two stars or three stars.
Words of the day are very poor. Often very common words or phrases- not conductive to learning something new- out of the ordinary or useful. The adverts are too frequent. These do not make me want the premium version, on the contrary they piss me off and make me dislike the app. The share button is poorly placed as it covers the definition text. All these things are easily fixed. Will they do it though? I'll try back in a few months...
