Please extract dictionary files to corresponding folder(s) on your computer and copy them back using iTunes File Sharing, if you want to use your own collection of dictionaries.
• Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Great new arrival among Stardicts
This is a great app that is functional and intuitive. In the meantime, Dictionary Universal was the best among the Stardict dictionaries. However, Dictionary Universal has been lagging behind with recent improvements (the app still does not support Split view). At this time, Dicty is well-formed to be more than a substitute for the Dictionary Universal. I would like to expect only two improvements to this app. First, I would like to be able to use the pronunciation voice files as supported by Dictionary Universal. Secondly, I hope that the search interface is improved so that one word at a time can be easily converted into multiple dictionaries (in Dictionary Universal I can swipe fingers left and right to change the dictionaries).
