Nothing better

Love it! Use it daily

Tops! Cleans up Americanized English

Makes life easier with accurate communication. Magna est veritas. I agree, Americans for the most part have lost the beauty of speaking and writing their Mother language, not to their fault but to the fault separation and no historical context; after all Americans are only a little over 200 years old.

Slow

When I open the app, I hate how long the developers make you look at the title screen. They must think that it is a good advertisement but it is very annoying. Dictionary otherwise ok.

I am now 81 years old, and old retired professor at Yale and by God’s grace am alert mentally and stay academically active. I was brought up hearing my Dad tell me over and over again, that the Oxford dictionary was THE final arbiter for all disputes, where the English language was concerned. It was ingrained in me. So this review is written with an element of bias. One of my high school teachers often mentioned that a person’s intelligence could, very subtly, be assessed by the physical condition of his or her dictionary. If it was pristine and looked like it could fetch a good price at a book store, then very likely there was not too much to envy in the mind of the possessor of that lexicon. My Oxford dictionaries, one at work and the other at home, were in tatters even by the time I was in my forties. Then, some years ago I stumbled into the Oxford for my iPhone. Now my dictionaries on my book shelves could look unopened had they not been used before. I am totally dependent on my mobile phone now, not because of the phone, but because of my dictionary. 5 stars all the way! Cyrus Kapadia

Oxford - word studies and origin of intent

Great for help in word searches and original orig and meaning.
By vbd777

Great info, clunky app

3
For the price I expected more customization. For example, I created several folders to store words, but when adding a word to a saved folder, I’m only able to save it to favorites, I then have to go to the favorites folder and move the words to the proper folder. Given technological advancement of apps and folder organization, and again, the high price of this app, I expected a bit more
By SirDaniel73

Functional and accurate!

Haven’t had any issues. Similar to the dictionary pre-loaded on (American) Macs (NOAD). As an American (and lover of dictionaries), I enjoy the various subtle and less subtle differences.

As an American who attended Oxford University—particularly at Samuel Johnson’s Pembroke College—this dictionary has been for me the authoritative reference on papers, reports, and theses all of my adult life.
