    I'm a big lover of dictionaries. OED, especially. Oxford English Dictionary. The most comprehensive, authoritative dictionary of the English language. Is it possible that it might come to iPad or iDevices in general???

    I'm using it on the iPad and the iPhone. I'm guessing you didn't actually check to see if it was already in the app store...

    Not to be pedantic, but I believe that iPagan is wondering about the 20 volume Oxford English Dictionary, not the single-volume Oxford Dictionary of English. :cool:

    The former is not, to my knowledge, available for iDevices at this time. The latter, is, and I use the excellent ODEDeluxe, which also includes their thesaurus. The interface is excellent, and updates are regular. The interface has not yet been updated for native iPad use, but they claim it will be coming soon.
