Ratings and Reviews
So the developer updated this app right before the release of iOS11, that’s 3 years after the previous update! Congrats to the reborn! I love this app on iPhone, and it gets even better on iPad now. But I hope developer can bring back the translation feature which I think is very convenient in app.
I have had the app for many years, and found that I was relying more on this company than the many others out there. I have now even bought all the updates. Totally worth it. Highly recommended! Keep up the good work! It gets better with every update.
Sync Favs w iPhone
I love the app and use it on iPhone all the time. That said, I don’t want to maintain two separate and unique lists of favorite words. This makes no sense, particularly when the iPhone app already syncs to iCloud. I’m confused why there are two individual apps (and don’t remember if I purchased both or not) but I’d rather run the iPhone app on iPad and have a single list of merged favorites than maintain two lists.
