Functionality – 4/5

The purpose of this app is to give you definitions of words and their origin. Simply type the needed word into the search box on the main screen. The app will find you this exact word or a phrase with this word. Next, you click on it and see its definition, example of use, and origin. It's fun to see how a lot of English words originate from French. There's a word of the day available — use it to widen your personal dictionary.

Design – 2/5

Oxford Dictionary of English app has a pretty basic design. Blue and white main theme similar to the actual dictionary doesn't catch your attention. We guess that the app's developers wanted to stay classy, but wouldn't it be cool to use a more fun looking dictionary app? That could attract more people to improve their dictionary skills.

Usability – 3/5

It's easy to use this app. But the main idea that you need to take away from this Oxford Dictionary of English review is that its free version is very limited. You'd better go premium right away because otherwise, you can't listen to the words' pronunciations, and you can't use it offline. The offline thing isn't a problem because we live in the world with easy access to the Internet, but it's lame when you can't listen to the word for free. Moreover, when you buy a premium version, quite a few words don't have a listening feature at all!

Cross-platform use – 5/5

Oxford Dictionary of English Android version works pretty much the same way as the Oxford Dictionary of English iOS version. You still have to buy a premium account if you want to use this app to its fullest potential on both platforms.

In-app purchases

Oxford Dictionary of English install is free, but you can buy an ad-free version of the app. To do that, you need to download their fellow app — Media 365 Book Reader or you need to purchase a premium version of the app for 12$.

You can also purchase a paperback dictionary through the Oxford Dictionary of English latest version. Click the basket icon on the top right of the home screen of the app, and you'll be redirected to the developer's website to shop.

The Bottom Line

This is probably the best and most classy dictionary app out there. That's why it's not as easy to use as you'd like it to be. You have to buy a premium version of it in order to use it the way you need to. But maybe it's still worth it because it's a one-time payment only — it's not a subscription plan.
