    I always thought it would be wonderful to own at set of the OED but couldn’t afford it. Now I can have it on my phone at a very reasonable price. How wonderful.

    Whenever I want to quickly check the meaning of a word. I trust this Oxford compact dictionary to provide just what I need. I’ll often use it in class to provide the precise definition of a word.

    I have always used the Oxford dictionary since I was young. I remember the big, blue book we kept in our sitting room, to which we would refer all queries for new words and their meanings. This app takes that deep trust relationship into a new era.
