  • The World’s Best Dictionary

    By Joshua Hewlett
    I love my huge, two-volume copy of the shorter OED and use it all the time as a companion when reading philosophy and classic literature. However, they hefty volumes can be downright cumbersome to handle, especially when reading in bed or out in the hammock. This is where the PED app shines! It is so convenient and fast and the audio pronunciation is the icing on the cake. This app is worth every penny!

    The dictionary is excellent, especially on British terms, but heaven help you if you keep a list of Favorites and folders. Mine were mostly wiped out overnight, and recovery seems impossible. The Trash icon, which preserves discarded messages in email services, is used here to put words in the trash, never to be seen again. Also note that when you click on a Favorite word, you’re apt to get a different one, usually an adjacent word recently viewed. The app also lacks synonyms and antonyms. These people need to get their act together. I’m going to a different dictionary app until they do.
  • Excellent dictionary

    By RickinLA
    When you want the best in dictionaries you can always count on Oxford. This app is no exception. An excellent dictionary that has everything you’ll ever need! There is one thing that happened that has completely baffled me. I created my own “folder” under the Favorites section. I had “favorited” many words and moved them into my folder. I had to shut my iPhoneX down and do a restart. When I went to the Oxford Dictionary the folder I had created “Rick’s Favorites” had disappeared. Along with the many words I had placed in it. Why would a restart wipe out the folder I had created to hold my favorite words? I’ve tried every way I know to recover the folder but to no avail. Hopefully the developer may have an idea of how I should proceed. Hopefully?
