    After installing this app, I tried to listen to the pronunciation that I searched. But I couldn’t hear any pronunciation. Though I uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times, it did not work.
  • Good reference

    As a writer of some note, I have owned for years the two-volume set of the Oxford English Dictionary. And now I own the electronic edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English. And though I still use the two-volume OED as a primary reference, I use the electronic OED for quick lookups.
  • Good dictionary

    No matter how many times I write a review, this app keeps begging me to write a review. For that reason, I am giving it the lowest possible rating—1 star.
