    I find this application (strangely) complementary to the Oxford English Dictionary. The latter has more grammatical information and more usage examples.

Of course, this is a language enthusiast's op

    I have loved Collins paper dic for advanced learner since its way it explains words and the like. For example if I looks up the word 'love', it starts like if you love someone~~ which is way better than other similar dics. I dont know why it is different from the original one. It is not the free version or even cheap. So I believe oneday you guys do this job I have mentioned about. Thanks for it.

    Wish it has an option for audio pronunciation of words to here how they sound at times when there are words that's uncommon. Other than that it's excellent!

    Expensive but it works! I have tried many dictionaries but they were all unreliable. I would rate 5* if added features were available as on the other dictionaries but a working & reliable one is more important.
