if you slow why to show a splash srceen and block users?


If your app starts forever why do you show a modal splash screen (habit from 90x) that blocks from using the computer?

No American pronunciation


I was very disappointed to find that the version for Mac doesn’t have American pronunciation which was one of the main points to buy it. Other than that evrything is fine so far.

Bad UI


It works as a dictionary, but UI is so bad I can’t even imagine how you can make it worse. So OK, it’s formally functional, but you’ll hate it.
