Customer Reviews

The quiz is useless!

Well, it seems the recent updates is making this app a game app.
Every time I open the app, the curser won't be at the search box, and I have to tap on the very top of the screen to start typing in the tiny little search box. Guess what is taking up the huge chunk of interface? The vocabulary quiz I've never played. This app does have a widget and I expected it to have a fast access to its dictionary feature. But again, it just offers the useless quiz feature at your hands! Quite irritating that a utility app behaves like a game app. Not to mention the extra space it takes up.

Need unabridged version

I'm trying to read an article in the journal anglisticum, and I'm trying to lookup Anglistic. It's a cardiology article that is published in a language journal and I am a bit confused.
