It is useless now

I have purchased it a few years ago and it has been working anyhow till this update. After upgrading the app yesterday, it doesn’t download and it takes forever. In my case, I have kept my macbook pro 15 on the whole night and its download progress didn’t move a pixel forward. Why we can’t simply download it from the app store with all of its data?

Developer Response

We are very sorry that you have experienced difficulties in downloading the dictionary. This is due to hosting problems, rather than the app itself. Most of our customers have now been able to download the dictionary successfully, so we suggest that you try downloading again.

We have also updated the app to allow users to download the dictionary from an alternative server if necessary, so if you are still having problems with downloading, please go to the app's 'Download Settings' and follow the instructions there.

We hope that you will now be able to use your dictionary app and we apologize for any inconvenience. If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact us via the email link in the app.

How to sync my favourties and History

I bought it on my iphone last year, but when I try to use it on my MAC, I have to pay it again, I don't why, It is unbelievable.
What's more, my favourites and history can't be synced between my iphone and my MAC, even though I am signed in to the iCloud with the same Apple ID. It is so inconvenient. Is there anything you can do with it ? Thank you

I can’t download all the vocabulary!

I installed the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary software onto my Mac and I just payed for the entire 9th Edition English Leaner vocabulary but I can’t download all the new words. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program but that didn’t solve the problem. I hope that someone can fix this issue.
