    When it comes to language teaching, Oxford dictionaries have earned their reputation by presenting the best of the works in this field. I have been using oxford dictionaries, different classes, from pocket to advanced learners for a long time. And I never felt any necessity to switch over to another brand, the reason is obvious. Furthermore, I would liked to congratulate Oxford ELT, for producing

    I have exactly the same request as another reviewer (Greg). 1. WOTD word of the day feature/widget. Other high end dictionaries have one! Why not OALD? 2. Arranging favourites into multiple lists for vocabulary learning/reference/sharing would put OALD in a different league altogether!

    The data(words, pronunciations and other packages that you need to download for the app to work) has to be saved on internal memory , otherwise the app crashes looking for the data on the external SD. This dictionary is not too inclusive, there are still some of those common words out there that this dictionary has no explanations for them.

    As an ESL teacher this is an essential resource especially with the sample sentences in British and NA accents. Would like to see a word of the day widget, grouping of favourites into multiple lists and the ability to share a favourites list with my students.

    User-friendly interface, extensive explanations with loads of examples, all in all, worth the price for an English learner.
