  • I bought this app many years ago....

    The app now spams a LOGIN message and then a YOU HAVE TO LOGIN IN AT SOME POINT message. Despite the fact that I should never have to login to use something I paid for, I have tried logging into iTunes. It changes nothing. There was an update available months ago, but when I attempted to update it around the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas), I would get a message saying the update was no longer available. The login message appears repeatedly the instant I open the app. It’s literally nearly impossible to use and actually stressful. Look. I purchased this app long long ago for for life. It’s complete utter awfulness to experience this kind of greedy deception in a freaking dictionary from OXFORD.

    The information in this lexicon is the best for free. It's much better that the standard iPhone dictionary. If I could afford the premium version I would.
  • Best dictionary for “English” words and phrases

    Content is well of high quality and organized but search/access to it could be improved. The app is slow to start and search could be more flexible.
