Must have for the serious reader/writer

I have known of this famous dictionary since my early school days. So I was really glad it is available in the windows store. This and Chambers are my primary reading/writing/reference tools. I love it and recommend it wholeheartedly. Thank you Oxford for a very affordable first class dictionary!

not recommend

crash too often. no search box available at all time. whenever you need to look for a word, you have to go back to the first screen to do it. This dictionary is not worth for it's price.

Great app but needs a thesaurus

App has a great user interface, good example sentences, and actually practical words for 'word of the day' but lacks any sort of dedicated thesaurus function. The addition of a thesaurus would be phenomenal!

Really clean interface and really good app.

Love this in snap view...and love the use of search contract in Windows 8...really easy to reference key words.

Cut and Paste

Great application, but it does not appear to support cut and paste.

Excellent App

A must-have App because it works even if you are offline, an excellent feature that other dictionaries in the store don't have. The only problem is that the "Search box" disappear in snap view after finding the meaning of a word and you have to go back to search a new word. Please do something to have "Search box" always. Make this one an universal app to be used in both windows tablets and windows phones.

Not quite what I hoped

Excellent dictionary but was hoping for something closer to the famed OED. I have tried looking up words that this version does not recognize (not curse words but what is known as "10 dollar words") A bit pricy, but still worth it overall.
