Database updates, audio pronunciation issue fix
It will be better if there are more keyboard shortcuts
Everytime when you want to look up a new word, you have to click the delete button and click search box again. There is no keyboard shortcut for activate that search box or trigger the prounciation. Compare to Windows version, this version doesn’t have thesaurus built-in. So it is not as powerful as the Windows free version.
Friends….. This is not like windows version.In windows version ctrl+right click on a word will lead to the wordweb. It can be used in all the applications like browser, pdf, microsoft office apps, djvu files and all the document type files. But it is not so in mac version. It is a utter waste to buy this in mac version. it is not even equivalent to mac's inbuilt dictionary. It is a normal good dictionary where you have to type the word and search. I was expecting it to function as like in Windows version. But I was totally disappointed after buying this. Wordweb is an excellent dictionary for Windows but it is right opposite for Mac. Hope this review would help the interested people.
