Editors' Review

Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, 8th Edition is a complete resource for anyone looking to improve their vocabulary and understanding of the English language. With its smooth, efficient interface and highly customizable display settings, you'll quickly find this program to be an indispensable companion.

Pros

Spoken words and sentences: For each dictionary entry, there are buttons to have the word spoken in either British or North American English. Many listings also have example sentences in both dialects that you can download individually as you want to hear them or in a complete batch. The entire batch in one dialect takes up just over 430MB of memory.

Customized listings: In the Settings menu, you can select what you want to see and not see in each listing. For example, you can hide pictures, pronunciations, synonyms and opposites, or examples, depending on what you're using the program for and what helps enhance your understanding of the material.

Excellent interface: All of the features of this app are just a few taps away, thanks to its intuitive interface, which features a menu bar at the bottom of the screen that you can use to move from one section to another. You can also search for a particular word or jump to a section using the alphabet key on the right side of the screen.

Cons

No trial: This app does come with a substantial price tag at $30.99, and there is no option to try it out first to see if it's what you're looking for. If you're in need of a good dictionary app, though, you really can't go wrong with this one.

Bottom Line

Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary is an excellent app that provides you with all kinds of information to help you improve your reading comprehension and English vocabulary. And because it offers such a customizable experience, you should have no trouble getting the most possible out of this resource app.
