Really, a fulfilled hope!
I had downloaded first Enfour's American Heritage Desk Dictionary, then the Roget's Thesaurus, then the American Heritage Fourth Edition, and finally the American Heritage Fourth Edition Deluxe (a AD4H and Roget's all in one package). Each was an improvement on the last, and Enfour, besides a few odd bugs here and there, always had a great UI with gorgeous graphics).
I'm an English teacher in Japan, and having a great dictionary and thesaurus on hand especially for the more advanced classes I teach makes explaining words the difference between words with similar meanings but different nuances a whole lot easier.
I was hoping that Enfour, an app company I trust, would put out an Oxford Dictionary. The moment I heard Enfour put out an Oxford dictionary, I was at the nearest WiFi spot a lot earlier up then I usually get up. That the dictionary wasn't just a concise version, and that it inculded the Oxford Thesaurus, was all more than I had hoped for.
Gorgeous interface, great UI, explanations between words of similar meaning in the Thesaurus, phrasal verbs, and example sentences make it the best Dictionary you can currently get on the iPhone.
Expensive, but if you're looking for the best, this is it!
My only complaints are not every word in the phrasal verbs or idioms hyperlinks, and occassionally I get a blank screen in search, which just means I must tap another function at the bottom, then return to search.
