It's ok

I have used this app for a long time and it has always helped me in school. I love how I could used it without internet access. I am not fond of the new update for the reason that it has become slower. I have internet access now and all of those accidentally pressed options in the menu get so annoying. I love how I can search a word and many family members of the same words appear, but what I hate is when it gives me a definition that requires me to go to the main state of the word and reread the definition. Also I don't always know the correct spelling of the word and sometimes the app is of no use and I have to google the word for a spellcheck. Sometimes I think google is a better dictionary because some definitions of words just confuse me more.

Indispensable So Often

Getting used to the upgrade and starting to evaluate upgrades.....why!?!..... Because I find I go to this app with increasing frequency. Before my elderly father broke his shoulder I'd never have thought of buying an add on like the medical dictionary. This app allows me freedom of understanding..... In the case I mentioned, I now know what a comminuted fracture is. Took me a bit longer than I liked to pronounce it but I can hold my own with his doctors thanks to this app and my willingness to learn. I'm 62..... He's 90!!!
Thank you.

Good stuff, but...

I like this app and use it a lot, especially the translator. Each revision keeps getting better 'n better. However, I had purchased the premium edition quite some time ago, yet with each subsequent update my features started disappearing and now I am back to seeing Ads. What's up with that?!
