    Of course this app provides time-honored authority for more words than most will ever care to know. And it is easy to use. May I suggest, please, that Oxford clean up the presentation. It’s a bit busy. Otherwise, this is an indispensable app for those who write.
  • Good. Very good. Many words.

  • OED’ Word of the Day Needs Complexity

    Might you consider upgrading this “word of the day” automatic feature? Granted, I acknowledge the disclaimer that the word on every given day is randomly generated. That, however, is why the user can’t adjust it, not a fact that makes it impervious to the developer modifying the software. The problem as I see it is simply, if you will, that the words are too simple. My experience with such novelties is that they highlight words not usually found in common usage, in order to expand one’s vocabulary. Your app, on the other hand, serves up a daily dose of hopelessly commonplace nouns and verbs; for example, “rodeo” and “nibble”, respectively, as two recent offerings. As such, the feature is uninformative at best and, unless one shuts down the notifications entirely, a nuisance. The distinguished OED should expand the mind and the vocabulary of the educated user, not cater to popularity in pursuing the least common denominator among the crowd. Please consider this sensible upgrade to your software. Thank you for your attention to my concern, meant constructively of course as a longtime faithful adherent to the OED.

    This dictionary actually gives definitions instead of just using the word you are looking up in a sample sentence. When you need to understand the word you are looking up you need this dictionary!
