IMPORTANT: This free download will give you 100 sample entries from the dictionary. An in-app purchase is required to activate the full dictionary.
Understand the differences between similar words in written and spoken English and find the right words to say exactly what you mean – and enrich your vocabulary.
How? Each entry has a group of 3-10 synonyms.
Each synonym is clearly explained in terms of meaning, grammar, and register.
An example sentence shows how each synonym is used.
Notes highlight and explain synonyms that are particularly close in meaning or easily confused so you make the right choice.
For example, the Oxford Learner’s Thesaurus helps you understand the differences between familiar words such as 'easy' and 'simple' while learning words you may not know such as 'effortless', 'painless', and 'plain sailing'.
No two words are exactly the same. Use the Oxford Learners' Thesaurus to choose exactly the right word:
• Over 17,000 synonyms and opposites are explained
• Alphabetical index makes it easy to find the word you are looking for
• Listen to real British and American voices pronounce the words and their synonyms
• 30 pre-loaded topics contain useful word lists you can add to or edit
• Create and organize your own lists of favourite words
• Use the notes to identify the exact difference between pairs of synonyms
• See which words are used most frequently and choose the most appropriate
• Choose the words that are right for the context: formal/informal, written/spoken, approving/disapproving
• Understand which words go together and use them correctly
• ‘Did you mean…?’ function and wildcard search allow you to find a word even if you don’t know the spelling
• View your History to see the last 100 words you looked up
The text coloring scheme and size makes the UI outstanding and clear. The offline pronunciation is clear as well. However, the app is expensive due to the less comprehensive vocabulary in comparison to Oxford thesaurus apps published by other developers (e.g. Mobi*). Also, could the app icon backdrop be simple and clean?
I've installed it hopefully wishing I'll complete my synonymous homework but once installed, I've to spend $30 on that. I'll recommend you please don't install it. I'm disappointed :-(
This app is much more expensive than the book I purchase. What a ridiculous thing.
Can i restore this one with my cd rom? I just do not want to buy twice here
Provide very less words. And for large no of words you have to buy it in Rs 1756
Only a very small number of words are in the free version. That should be in the description
What they dont tell you is that you have to pay almost 30 dollars to be able to view all entries
Not bad for trying free version. But for complete words, you have to pay $30.
I've been waiting for this app forever!...Wouldn’t do as great without this!
It's just amazing
Apt pronunciations offline.
It is not free version
Not free. Sucks
You have to spend £22 just to be able to search for something. It gives lots of free words, but not the ones you want. So you can't really tell if it is any good or not. I will buy Websters...at least it let's me search for a day.
I downloaded the app to test it's capabilities, feel and everything. I launched the app and by default, it has some words already preloaded. On clicking against one, it said "you have to buy...". Then why in the first place is it "free"? If you want to offer it at a premium, kindly indicate early. Useless.
Sorry but after searching for every word, it says "you need to buy it". It's not even useful. It seems like we downloaded it in vain.
Great comapanion for your english journey, if u already had OALD this should be supplementary. Unfortunately I noticed there are words that hasnt been enlisted in this thesaurus,so four star seems to be fair.
Very handy and helpful for English learners. I love it try it and use it to enrich your knowledge.
Very very very good. You can find each word in it
I'm vivid and it also same as me...

It is great
It's very good
The most important and helpful
At long last, the Android version of this dictionary has arrived! I’ve been using the PC format since its initial release, so I perfectly know what I’m talking about. Based on my extensive hands-on experience with this dictionary, I can say that this Android app has exceeded my expectations: faster than the PC version, more functionality and better layout. A must-have app for any ambitious learner or teacher of English! Expensive? Yes, because EXCEPTIONAL quality costs. Value for money? ABSOLUTELY! Testimony to that is that I’ve ALSO bought this dictionary in this (Android) format. If I could, I would give this app 6 stars! My warmest congratulations to the whole team behind the project – a perfect tandem of linguists and software developers! PS: I’m looking forward to the (Android) Collocations Dictionary as well!
Both the app and its content are the best among all similar things, we're waiting for other similar products like vocabulary trainer, oxford advanced learner's 9th and oxford 3000 to come to our beloved Android platform, we're waiting.
It's really very helpful for any English Learners. I want Oxford Collocation Dictionary for Android operating system, hope that it will be released soon.I'm eagerly waiting for that
