What's New in Version 3.0.1
Word of the Day update bug fixed
Word of the day needs audio
The word of the day is great, but to hear how the word sounds one has to type it into the search bar and select the word to play audio. Please add audio to the word of the day. Also; searching a word has an extra step that could be removed. Typing and pressing enter only brings up a drop down tab, and even if there is only one word that fits the search criteria, one must select it before viewing the word's page. Please let the enter button go directly to the word and not to a drop down Tab under the search bar.
Like the app for iPhone, this one is quick and easy to use. The highlighted definition is puzzling however. The app presents a highlighted definition at the beginning of entries that is not included in the regular definition list. It's not clear where this definition comes from or how it's selected.
Needs to adjust font size
Been a very long time user of this favorite app. Since recent update, the font size has gone too large to read. Please add a setting that allows us to adjust font size.
