What's New in Version 3.4.1
Gameplay and UX improvements
What is wrong with this app? Can you spell annoying?
I can't survive without a dictionary. I've used this app for years. The past few months have been ridiculous because often when I enter a word I get nothing. It's blank. The dictionary has vanished. So, I have to delete the app and reload it.
The app used to be beautiful and uncluttered, simple and quick to use. Now it is hard to find the actual definition of a word in between ads that I frankly would not want people to see over my shoulder. Still fulfills its function, but not as efficiently as before.
But what's up with the freak'n grey? I loved the red. It made looking at a ton of words much more exciting to look at. I can't stand the grey everywhere now. I hate opening the app now.
