What's New in Version 2.9
- Support for multitasking on iPad
- Fix for compatibility issues on iOS 9
I would give this app five starts but it's missing vocabulary words' categories. For example, it doesn't list if the vocabulary word is a "Noun", "Verb" , " conjunction" etc. Also there aren't any example sentences to see the usage; this app is only good when in a conversation and don't understand a word. One can quickly check the word to understand what the other side just said.
