Slow, Wasteful Layout : do you really need all examples spoken for "advanced" learners, and need "dio dic" opening screen? do i ? Diotic rhyme, it is. i'm erstwhile admirer of Cobuild advanced dic. Sadly so slow to Boot, this app left to rot in my galaxy Note3. Instead i tried 5th ed paperback, but this one is made with worst printing paper I've ever seen through. We engish learners are losing the greatest tool ever. Now I'm seeing Concise Oxford, it's stunningly fast & legible, user-oriented.

Almost perfect I'm looking forward to full text search capability. I've already sent more extensive feedback directly from the purchased application facility for this.
