Needs to leave the menubar

I’m a longtime user of this app on my iPhone/iPad and am really glad to have a Mac version, as I do most of my language studying on my computer. It’s always been a solid app with accurate translations, and the ability to have words spoken to you is a nice touch. I’m very glad to see that additional languages were added to this app in its most recent update, and that it’s getting regular attention from its developers. However there’s still no way to run it as a regular app in the dock, and it still runs in the menubar. I really hope this issue can be fixed and that we can have the option of freeing it from the menubar. My menubar on my 11” Macbook Air is already pretty crowded. Plus, having it not in the dock is less convenient when switching between open windows (if using, say, Mission Control), and clearly confuses some users when they click the iTranslate app icon in Launchpad and seemingly nothing happens when they don’t notice a new icon being added to their menubar. Having it run as a mini Menubar app should be an option, but not the default to avoid confusion. I’m hoping that this will graduate to a full windowed app very soon so that I can fully use it as I need to.

You Pay then Pay again! Unchecked Greed!

In December 2015 I paid $9.99 for this app which is rather pricey for a translation app, considering Google Translate is free and so is Microsoft translate. As soon as I opened this app I immediately noticed it still contained ads after paying the first $10. Next, when I tried to use the microphone feature, a box pops up—it requires the user to pay $6.99 MORE to use the voice feature and to get rid of the ads! This app is a web link that requires internet access, not software that stands alone. That is greed gone to seed! What is this developer thinking...

it does not work

It says "Could not connect to the server.” for about a year now. This app does not work folks. Do not waste money.
