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.
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.
Very bad experience. I have installed it on my lenovo idea tab B8080-H. It is not working. If I search a word, it keeps on searching forever but doesn't show any results. I have tried to download the database for offline use, it is not downloading. Total frustration.
Why adverts? A good dictionary but I don't need to see two big advert buttons to buy more at the bottom of the search page, especially for a product which I have paid so much for.
