2.0 out of 5 stars Good on paperback/hardcover but lackluster on the kindle platform, September 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In its paperback/hardcover format, this should be an excellent reference book. However, it is too premature to be on the kindle platform. It lacks several crucial features as an electronic dictionary: 1) Primitive word search function. You have to finish typing the whole word before you are shown the various locations where the word appears. Unlike the New Oxford American Dictionary and Oxford Dictionary of English bundled with Amazon Kindle, the word search narrows as you continue typing. This crucial feature is missing here. 2) Index is missing. As this product comes with primitive word search function, I would expect an index of all the words in the dictionary at the table of content, but no such index exists. 3) There are words marked with asterisk indicating an article under that name. However, when the 5-way cursor moves to the word, it does not take me directly to the new entry. Instead, I have to type the whole word anew. 4) The maps included in the dictionary are too faint to be readable. I am surprised that a reputable publisher like Oxford would release a sub-standard electronic dictionary of the Bible, even though they have produced excellent electronic New Oxford American Dictionary and Oxford Dictionary of English. I wish they can do a better job of updating this product in future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very handy PDA Dictionary and Thesaurus, December 15, 2005
I bought the 11th edition and this comes with Mobipocket Reader Pro v4.7. I find that the response is fast even though it loads from the card. The icons and user-interface are user-friendly. It would be much more helpful if I can just type in a new word without the hassle of manually going back to the main page and it would have earned 5 stars if there is also a direct link from the word in the Dictionary to the Thesaurus.
