A wonderful App
I enjoy this app a great deal because astonishingly, I too have thought about some of these questions and it's great to see them answered by knowledgeable people. However I do have two "cons". One already mentioned is the name of the app. I confess to not visiting this app for a long time and when I ran across it on my phone recently, I was confused as to why I would have an app apparently pertaining to Dr Phil. I HATE Dr Phil. Fortunately my concern was groundless as I found when I opened the app. My last con would be the lack of a built-in dictionary. True, I can copy a word to the clipboard and reference an external dictionary but then I can never return to the question I was reading. A serious bummer and one which needs to be addressed.
You might want to change app name to "Ask Philos" or "Ask Socrates" or else people might think the app has something to do with Dr. Phil.
What a snitty app.
