The older version has a better user interface
This is the best dictionary as far as I am concerned. This app is easy to use.
At 85 years old, your app is Very Handy in daily work, thought, ideation and general computer work — of all sorts. Five Stars! Not a day goes by that I’m not using my computer tools; at my desk, in my garage/shop/museum, on the run, or at my bedside, etc. Thanks to our father-God for all the possibilities available in His perfect CREATION WORK. And BLESS YOU for your questing for what is possible, desirable and ATTAINABLE in His CREATION WORK, for we who are created in His Image. Keep up your good guesting, thought and invention. He, God expects you to find it, and.... share it with your fellow creatures, whose grateful remunerating spirits are in tact. Oh yes there are some grouches about there, but they are not Dominant! Thomas C Pratt
This is the home standard.
Worth the price especially since I have 3 kids in MS and HS who can also use via family sharing.
This dictionary is too simplistic. No audio, poor examples, etc. I was already charged for the trial period! I have requested a refund.
