Used to love this app - until they decided to have ads that blow over the app, making it a very unpleasant experience. Sad, because before they started doing that, this dictionary was great Addendum - this is the third time I've told developers how obnoxious are ads that completely cover the app. I'm NOT complaining about the need for ads, just the ones that take over and cover the app completely. Not only is it very annoying, it is a guarantee that I will never ever click on that type of ad

Hi James, We are sad to know you are disappointed with the app. Please, note that ads and promotions play an important role in delivering the genuine Oxford content for free. In the light of that fact, we need to implement them. Of course, your input is valuable and we will discuss if we can reduce the number of ads. Mary-Ann

I really love your oxford Russian-English dictionary, and I'd have no problem buying this app, but it looks like there's only a subscribe button. I know that subscriptions mean more consistent income, but I hate ads, and I hate "poking holes" in the bottom of my already thin wallet. I'd much prefer to pay once up-front for a version now and pay for an updated edition in the future. Please let me know if I'm missing a non-subscription option!

Hi there, Rose, Thank you for your interest in our app. Actually, we're happy to let you know that the Oxford Russian-English Dictionary comes with a one-off payment only. Please, have a look at the app details here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobisystems.msdict.embedded.wireless.oxford.russian. Kind regards, Mary-Ann

To many options. Example: affect(1), affect(2), or affect(3). I want affect(1,2,&3) in one option. I like the files, but they are no good to me if I have to add three words to get what I want instead of just one. Who wants to click, look, back up, click, look, back up, etc. just to find what thay want. I'd rather click, look, scroll, 💡!. Also be good if you added a spot for things like homophones instead of only nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc..
