JUN 21, 2007

"Love it!! I had a more costly version on my Pocket PC and many words where not even in it. Oxford was not only cheaper but much easier to use and so far, everything I`ve looked up has been in there. I just love love it and you will too. My Palm Treo goes with me everywhere so I always have my dictionary with me. =)"

"I love to read books at night, or at the airport, or at the kids` Karate lessons. This dictionary is so easy to use that I can find my words in seconds and not miss a beat on my reading. This dictionary is extremely easy to use and easy to understand. Thank you, Oxford!"

I`d like to see the next version

"Installed easily. Some quirks: you can only scroll from the keyboard; must use the touchscreen to enter a word or see the definition; few obscure words like, exegesis or favonian; not all forms of words are there (chimerical is not, chimera is) so some words are hard to find; a dearth of foreign words like carpe diem; Vulgar words are censored; can`t add words; no links in definition to other hard words. Overall, not bad. I`d like a UI upgrade. "
