What's New in Version 8.4
Minor design tweaks
Everybody should have this app.
I absolutely love this app!! I'm taking time out to write a review because this app has become essential. I use this app leisurely and academically just about everyday. I have and will continue to use this app and recommend it to others. I don't even bother with other dictionary apps and it helps me to pronounce pharmacy words for work and school. I appreciate and thank you for making this app!!! Just one suggestion, it would be great if I could create folders for different groups of words (e.g spelling test, top 100 in pharmacy school, SAT's etc).
Great support service
There's a current server issue. According to Rael, "a wrong DNS entry has been populated and propagated. If you are on WiFi, you can switch to using Google's DNS by going into the Wi-Fi network properties and changing DNS to 22.214.171.124,126.96.36.199." Did so and app works just fine. That kind of prompt support service has just transformed my 1-star rating to something just under 5...4+!
Used to love this but it doesn't work now
Just like the only other reviewer said it tells you that you need to check your internet connectivity every time you tap a word. Completely not functional and no response from support either. Bummer!!! This used to be very helpful.
