Phrasal verbsI have downloaded it mainly to look up phrasal verbs, and it works as expected!!! With Cambridge dictionary (great dictionary) I HAD to go down the whole list to get the wanted phrasal verb. With this Oxford dic you are taken directly to the phrasal verb you are looking up! Thank you very much indeed. As to the favourite list, an abc order would be great. The price is a bit too high. I haven't received any key that I could use if buy a new device. Why ?
Please fix1. I have to press the return button to exit the current word entry and then click on the search box to start typing a new word. It's better if the software has two columns (like the ipad version of this software), left column for word search and word list and right for word entry. Otherwise, it is very inconvenient to search a new word. At least they should add a search button so that I can start a new search by clicking on that button. 2. I often review the words in the favorite word list. When I return from an entry for a favorite word back to the list, the list automatically scrolls to the top and I have to scroll down again to find where I was reviewing. Please fix this problem and let the favorite word list stay where it was, or change the software to two columns interface like ipad version so that both the word list and entry can be displayed simultaneously. 3. It would be better if the favorite word list can be exported to a text file so that the list can be re-imported after system reinstallation. Currently, each time before I re-install the system, I have to write all the words on a paper. I will give 5 stars if the above three problems are fixed.
This is the best for advanced learners.This is the best dictionary I have for advanced learners. I bought the other best known advanced level dictionaries as well. Unfortunately with other dictionary apps definitions of a word may require you to look up many other words. With this dictionary I no longer have any need to look up many words to understand a single word. Thanks to the all people who made this.
