Love the App

:
I am a sociology major and finding this app was a godsend. It has made my studies easier and my ability to apply what I learn to current events. It has helped me with my exams and classes that much easier. At present my GPA is 3.9 and I am at halftime in my life.

3/5 stars

Good, but inconsistent

:
I have at least a dozen of the Oxford dictionaries for iPad. I want to have immediate access to thorough and accurate definitions for a great many terms running the gamut from philosophy to literature to politics to world history to music and opera . In general, these resources are very good, some even excellent. But, that said, I do notice gaps and inconsistencies that are surprising. Some important terms get very thorough coverage, with detailed entries. Other important terms get surprisingly short entries. And on occasion, some important words are not listed at all. Too often I have to go to Wikipedia to fill the gaps. I like having these resources at my fingertips. I only wish they were more consistently excellent.

5/5 stars

Saved my scholarship! Well worth it!

:
I'm a high-school kid. My GPA was riding the line for a $20,000 scholarship. This app, although 15 bucks, was well worth it and had everything I needed. Will definitely keep it for college too! Buy it!
