Disappointed in the Recent Upate

Evian I.

I have greatly enjoyed using this app for over 8 years, being able to access it from anywhere at any time without having to depend on the Internet or wi-fi. The word games provide an excellent means of learning new words and keeping current with changes to familiar words. Being able to check spelling and definitions of words during a game has been helpful. The pronunciation feature is a plus, enabling me to check a pronunciation "on the fly." However, with the recent update, I can no longer access the dictionary or any of its wonderful components without access to the Internet, which is disappointing, as sometimes the Internet is blocked at some locations or is simply not available. I am disappointed that you have chosen to change your app so that it, in essence, denies access to users who may not have or cannot access the Internet. I am sure I am not the only person who would appreciate it if you would eliminate that restriction. - The Thinker

Correction and Apology for my earlier “WARNING!”


I accidentally made a severe critical review of this developer. Another developer, NOT MobiSystems, Inc., had left users high and dry by not updating an expensive dictionary app to be compatible with iOS 11. I could not write a critical review because their app had been removed from the app store. I downloaded this app (incorrectly thinking it was by the same developer) to have a platform to complain about the developer. I now realize MobiSystems, Inc., is not the developer of the app I was aggravated about. I am very sorry for my mistake.

Newest update:


Newest update: This is the second time to write this this morning. I’m getting use to this update and would have given it an additional star except that it keep sending me the same update word when I fire up my screen, but the wor never changes from “winter pea” yet the real update does change. If I hit send and it doesn’t send and wipes outLike the last one a few minutes ago I may look for a better app. There is no other way that I can see to report the glitch. Maybe some one related to this app will fix it.

Developer Response

Thank you for the comment. Please bear in mind that the redesign of the app was required due tot the updates of the iOS. We, as a developer, need to follow the trends in mobile progress and provide new features within the UI.
