  • worst dictionary

    By Yasooj
    Just try to customize it with better fonts. The pronunciation icon could be bolder so as to tap on it rightly. We are you costing us extra money for upgrading!!! We have already paid quit a hefty money!
  • I LOVE OALD app! I use this app to become a native speaker!

    By SC from Virginia
    Oxford Advance Learner’s Dictionary (OALD) is the essential app for anyone learning English. English is my second language; naturally, I have foreign accents. I use this app to ditch my accents. I especially like the two audio pronunciations, British and Native American, so I can compare them. Also, I LOVE the audio sentences; they are the precious treasures which I’ve ever found to become a native speaker; I listen to them, paying attention to the cadence to their speeches and then with my fingertip I touch the words which I have been mispronouncing them and practice pronunciations with this app until my foreign accents have been supplanted with native accents.... Anyone who is learning English as a second language or who wants to become a native speaker should get this app. This app will surely help you to master English faster and become a native speaker avoiding hurdles.... This app is perfect for me; it is made for me. I LOVE OALD app! This app runs fast, works on both online and offline and syncs beautifully with my Apple devices. This app is an excellent tool for anyone learning English. I have made this OALD app as my constant companion. I carry it with me wherever I go. I live with it! I LOVE it! Thank you!

  • Problems with the apple watch

    By Amirroooosad
    A great app...but It seems the apple watch application needs an update as I receive an error on my apple watch indicating it has a problem connecting to the iphone.
  • Great dictionary but...

    By M.Laali
    The app used to open to the OALD tab, the search part, but after the latest update when I run the app it starts with the Catalogue tab, which is kind of annoying since I use the dictionary quite often on a daily basis. Please change it back to the previous mode. Update: Removed the app and installed it again. It fixed the problem but my Favorites are gone. 😞
  • Great

    By fuirious
    Much better app than the ones from Mobisystem. I like the layout, and the inclusion of Phrasal verbs and idioms (is tedious to have several apps for each thing). I have a request: please show the keyboard upon launch! Much quicker to search in that way. Thank you.
