  • Your app

    By khadijak890
    The words you recommend i dont need it at all , they aren’t that useful that they should be. And it’s so annoying that we can’t have the sound an pronounciations without premium account! It IS necessary.
  • Don't update

    By Bruno Flausino
    Since I updated this dictionary, I don't have access to the sounds anymore. I can't just believe that..... They want me to pay again! DO NOT BUY IT, AFTER SOME MONTHS YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY AGAIN!

  • Not the best

    By szk75
    The keeps indicating that there’s an 1 new notification but there isn’t any and can’t clear the red number 1 upon closing the app.
  • Won’t Paste?

    By Feral Film
    Whenever attempting to cut-n-paste a word into the dictionary’s Search field, long pressing in the Search box brings up the standard “Paste” option, but tapping on that has no effect. Of note: when using a hardware (Bluetooth) keyboard, typing [Cmd][V] pastes perfectly well. (I’m using a brand new 9.7-inch iPad 6th generation, on which Paste works fine in every other app I’ve tried. I also have the Android version of this app on a phone, where paste works as expected.)
  • Upgraded to premium but...

    By littleapples
    I liked the app fine and upgraded to get rid of ads and get the audio. Still no audio. App is basically fine and not having the ads is a big plus. But sound, please!
