The app is great... BUT... email verification does not function at all. No verification emails are delivered when you create an account. Then, you can't use the app on a second device because the app informs you that you haven't verified your email. Infuriating. Furthermore, the "forgot password" functionality suffers the same fate of no emails being delivered. It's impossible to reset your password if you never receive the reset password email.

The Oxford application had a free version, fast and user-friendly. I happily used it daily, for years. Now it is a disaster, a perverse business model. The "free version" is so crippled it is virtually unusable. Ads obscure the entire page, difficult to delete. No toggling between the two languages. Freezes quickly. FORCES high-priced subscription. There are many dictionary apps that function well and fairly. Forget Oxford. Tragically, it has been corrupted by corporate greed. How sad.

This was a great dictionary tool. I started using it for the definitions and the etymologys. Word of the day too. I liked it so much I paid a little over $5 for it a couple years ago. I thought that was supposed to support the app, keep me free of ads, and support the offline dictionary. Apparently my payment has lost its value, because now I'm getting hit with Temu ads every time I open The app. Usually when apps go to ads they grandfather in those who paid. This doesn't bode well.
