3/5 stars

Needs to be more comprehensive

:
As s composer and pianist an app. like this is essential. However, the entries are way too short and doesn't distinguish itself from a wiki search. Please continue to update and develop this dictionary. It's not worth the asking price as it is. Thank you.

0/5 stars

promising, but not worth the money

:
when i read that Grove Music Online is replaced by Oxford Music Online, I didn't have any hesitation to purchase this app, but very soon i got dissapointed. There is NOTHING like Grove, even Wikipedia is better (oops! did I say that?...) Well, the whole software industry seems to believe that is ok to come up with an unfinished product and develop it later (like buyng a car without wheels, or without and engine...), so i guess there still is hope... is it?

4/5 stars

Fine for quick use

:
The entries are fine for a quick look up of a term. Pretty much what you expect from a dictionary. It's no music encyclopedia, but it gets the job done. I don't quite understand what some if the other reviewers were expecting, but I don't see a problem with it. I mean, sure when you look up Allegro is would be useful to have the tempo range, but it did give a good paragraph of information. If they keep adding to the entries this could become a pretty awesome app.

It's kinda pricy, but I can imagine paying the same for an actual book.
