App was not updated for ages and now it crashes a lot

I rarely write updates, but this time I have to.
The app was not updated for ages, that means there were features, no new dictionaries or updates to existing ones, no speed improvements, ugly UI.

Even a simple feature to arrange available dictionaries to have some on top is not possible. Of course, no pronunciations for EN dictionaries.

Now it was updated, and it crashes A LOT. just try to search for “Märchenschloss” in DE-RU mode. Every time it crashes.

I’ve bought it to use for EN, DE languages but now I think I’ve made a mistake. I should consider buying other solutions (from dictionary publishers which cost even less!).

I hope it is a useful info for all considering this specific app as the main dictionary.

Money theft

In the latest update they removed pop-up translation. You pay almost $40 for an application. It’s not cheap, but the application comes with a set of useful features which justifies the purchase. Then suddenly one of these features (the most useful one for me) is removed for no reason. I am very disappointed. It’s equivalent to a money theft. I won’t be surprised if next they remove the ability to translate and we’ll have to buy another dictionary.

Can’t live without it

The dictionary is awesome. Rarely I can’t find a definition. My everyday desktop tool to translate from English to Russian and vice versa. Thanks!
