What's New in Version 3.5
Database updates, audio pronunciation issue fix
Does not work…A WASTE OF MONEY
It doesn't work. It's a waste of money
STILL no audio
Couldn’t help but notice a more current version 3.5 available here, not long after I’d posted a 2-star review. I of course installed it, albeit with fingers crossed.
Don’t get me wrong. As mentioned perviously I've been a WordWeb user for many years on another platform but could never justify the $$ for the little use I made of it there. Once I saw it available on the App Store here I thought it time to do what I could to support Anthony Lewis.
I only wish this v3.5 would have functioned the way the dev designed it to. It remains the only, and I mean *only* app I invoke (or website I visit) to be totally without of one of its’ more elegant offerings: hearing the pronunciation of a word in addition to its meaning.
I’m on macOS Sierra (10.12), Anthony, with no immediate plans to upgrade to High Sierra. C’mon, I know you can do it!!
