What's New in Version 4.1
Sound bug fixed.
New voice recognition.
Great for a non native
I think it's a great dictionary to understand
I have Being using some other dictionaries for a while but many a time I have to refer other sources to understand the word
But when I switch to this dictionary 95 % it solves the issue , and I have been using it over 3-4 month
I even ordered the hard copy
Best Dictionary App
I have been using this app since a long ago, n i found it the best. I would recommend to the developer to add a feature if we can email the saved words to fend off the situation incase we uninstall the app, all the saved words are gone.
I would personally vouch that this is the best dictionary (offline) for all those in need of one....
•The latest update it freezes and crashes sometimes on iphone 6s.. kindly look into the matter.
