What's New in Version 8.1.8
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
What about having a section for rhyming words?
The app has the traditional features; but it seems to me that rhyming words is an important service for many reasons which I will not elucidate here.
Maybe I should just look elsewhere???
Very close to Perfect
No Back Button, needs backward and forward buttons.
