    I would have rated this much higher had it not been for the continuous NAG SCREEN pushing me to rate it. Well, you wanted a Fu€KING rating, here it is. I do hope that you’re happy! Truthfully, I’m a tad burdened at the fact that my real, ACTUAL, gigantic, bound, OXFORD ED. dictionary has words that this application DOES NOT!!! It’s an app, it SHOULD HAVE MORE words than the limited paper bound version! But this application falls woefully short. Had I not been nagged, I’d given this app a much higher score. If measured on the word availability and usage, a score of 4.5+ would have been left, and if the score were based on content, I could only (in good conscience) have left a 3 stars. But, (as I look up words that most people might never even consider searching for), this app is an excellent reference for a large part of the populace. The average/above average, or even superior level intellect will likely be very well served by this application, even as flawed as I see it. So, enjoy!
