The free version is completely unusable being innundated with ads. And to purchase, only a subscription is available, you can't buy it outright, so your stuck with a recurring fee. If you use the app for 5 years, you'd have to pay $100. Twice the price of buying the hardcover version.

Hello, Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! Please, note that the subscription-based service always offers more frequent product updates and improvements for both content and features. Subscriptions can also be cancelled at any time you desire. Of course, this is only optional and you can look up the definitons in the free version.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!

Whenever the dictionary would update, all of the words in my favorites list would link to the wrong word. This happened to me twice. First time, I reported the issue and contacted support. They couldn't fix it, so I just went one by one and fixed each word. It just happened again, and now I have nearly 200 words in my list, and chose to uninstall instead of wasting my time knowing it will probably happen again. That being said, the dictionary itself is good.
