Developer doesn't reflect customers' opinion
I started not using translator since I've used this dictionary. The contents are easy to understand indeed. HOWEVER, Why don't they fix the landscape mode error?
Seriously I'm curious. I sent the email a couple months ago then they said "yes we will fix" but they haven't fixed it yet.
Great dictionary for international students
Free version is good enough for international students. But if you want more examples of using word, this price is reasonable comparing to other dictionary apps.
Worse than the original
this app doesn't upgrade, it downgrades. it has no landscape mode, the voice search doesn't work and there are more words in the free version! DO... NOT... BUY! and I only gave it one star because you can't give it none
