Fails the M.R.James test I admit there's a few archaic words that have escaped me. None are present in this app though Google will present the answers with correct pronunciation within a heartbeat. For those who enjoy late night ghost stories written by one of the finest British writers, this app is far too basic to do anything but confirm spelling of words you already know. Not worth the premium save for the excellent audio
was perfect before update made it less functional it was perfect. app was wonderful, functioning well, almost every word in usage was in there, search was quick and without flaws. then the update comes along and now this piece of garbage is slooooow and lost all its simplicity. make downgrade available please
Improved The 5.0.4 update gets the new app where it ought to be. The camera function, though, is just silly: how is it more convenient to photograph a word than to type or speak it? The content, if a little dated, is still the best: fuller definitions, citations, and usage notes than other established dictionaries. To get the latest entries (e.g. cisgender) you must go to oxforddictionaries dot com, or use the superb WordWeb Chambers app to do this for you.
Good but... I would really love to see a 'sync favourited words to google drive' option or something similar, as I have lost a couple of long lists due to hardware issues. Probably possible to back up manually but in this day and age I would hope it could be automated.
Awesome support I've been using the full version of this app since 2013. My activation key was no longer working after an upgrade and Ivaylo got back to me the evening of the day I made a support request. Blown away at that level of reaponsiveness. Heck yeah. You guys rock.
Searching from the index is faulty I also have the iPhone version of this app and you can search from the index on a whim, select a word, see the meaning, press the back button and then go back to where you were in the index. In this Android version hitting the back button takes you right back to the top of the index again at 'A' which is very disappointing. Please fix.
