    I used the free version and there are many adverts, however I upgraded to the premium version. This is an app with supporting. The GUI is well laid out, the features are very useful and this app simply works well. I would like to thank the developers for their efforts and please keep up the good work.

    Brings studying to a new level. Using it instead of a simple bilingual dictionary broadens the understanding of words and makes them so much easier to remember and use. I couldn't recommend it more! Huge love from yet another foreigner.

    This is the best dictionary app I have ever downloaded. The best part of this app is the ability to look up a word whilst in the middle of reading an article or other internet page. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone.

    I brought premium version of the app at just ₹80 a year back for lifetime, it is now showing ₹720 for a year. Who will buy by paying huge amount that too for limited duration instead it is better to buy hardcopy. The quality of content is unmatchable but I've small complaint when every time I open the app it shows a pop up message to subscribe premium version although I brought it.

    This is a wonderful dictionary, with very good explanations, good examples and it's also easy to understand. It also works well offline.

    Kind of ridiculous that there isn't a one time payment and instead you charge $31 a year for premium. Shaking my head. As if I couldn't just search up the definition on Google, there is literally no incentive to get the premium.

    I purchased the premium service. It has been working okay most of the time. My only complaint is that every time I open the app, the screen pops up giving me the option to upgrade to the premium service I already have, and it is the reason for only 3 stars. *Update 4/19/21: worse than ever. Now, the problem is constant with ads that block the screen. Downgrade to 1 star. Warning: DON'T PAY FOR PREMIUM. *Update 6/4/21 Still no fix. I guess they do not intend to fix it. Subscription cancelled.

    More ads than contents. There are better alternatives with less ads. Thanks for response. I agree the contents of Oxford dictionary is among the best. The pop-up ads are put there in a disturbing way. When one looks up something in a dictionary, usually he/she has the intention to get back to where he/she was after understanding the meaning of the word, but these types of ads get my mind distracted. I'm keen to try it again in future and update my vote then.

    Constant issues with the premium version in the past couple of months. At least once a week it reverts to the free version with ads for no apparent reason. Every time it happens, I have to reinstall the app from scratch to fix it, which only helps for a few days and then the app breaks again. This is a new bug that seems to have started after the last app update in April 2021.

    You should only put this app only for premium service. Its very annoying to get advertising every 2 seconds or when we swipe the pages. There are better dictionary apps available in app store.

    App is not working properly. Also doesn't download the offline content. It starts downloading, but stops halfway. I have paid the premium. Also the app is very slow. It takes about 10 seconds to open a word. MobiSystems, please give another company to develop this app if you cant do it properly

    Oh man, I have purchased the offline mode months ago, after I have changed my phone and install it again, although I can still download the offline database, the 'unlock premium' pop up keeps showing whenever I look up for a word. Come on man, can you please stop forcing users looking at a rediculous ad before 'unlock'ing a word?

    I purchased a premium service a few months ago, I have two complaints first one in every time I opened the app the screen pop up upgrade to premium that I already have. Second thing is offline issues, frequently ask me to dawnload, sometimes I dawnload 2-3 times per day MY ADVICE DON'T PAY FOR PREMIUM, THIS WORST APP I HAVE EVER SEEN.

    It was all going well satisfactorily after I bought the premium version and after few updates the screen shows pop-up to upgrade to Pro Version or asking to take a subscription. Henceforth I am giving 1 Star Review....😐😒😒 It continues even after I followed the devs FAQs. Please look into the matter.

    Horrible User interface. Should've been designed for easy lookup but it is designed like some archaic Byzantine library which forces you to spend time in it unnecessarily.

    Great dictionary for reading but the adds are constantly popping up... I know I didn't upgrade to premium but even for a free version the amount of adds is ridiculous. Also seen reviews that say there's adds in the premium version so I am not risking it. Uninstaled.

    The content is great but the ads keep popping everytime it's very annoying and ruins the experience, I thought of buying premium version but it's very costly compared to some others apps providing much better experience. I am very disappointed with the app...
