Don’t Waste Your Precious Mony on This App Please

1
Great Content But Poor App. Don’t waste your valuable money on this app please. It has really wonderful definition for every entry, and its definitions are much easier to understand for English learners compare to other dictionaries, but unfortunately the app has not developed to work smoothly and powerfully, especially in looking up phrases, idioms and misspelled words. I hope the developer take some measures to solve the issues. Furthermore , the app doesn’t have high resolution. In addition, it doesn’t pronounce the sentences offline and just entries have offline voice. On the other hand, contents are not as complete as Longman desktop version, for example it doesn’t contain language activator or extra examples section. I do appreciate its developers and I hope they do something for the performance of the app. After new update the app has got worse, in some entries there are missed parts and also when you leave the app in the background and come back on it again, it needs to get launched again. I’m so regret paid for this app. I have this app but I have to use free Longman Dictionaries in the App Store with advertisement because they work better than this.

Offline version is important!

Thanks for updating the app. But yet, when I use the “back arrow”, it turns to the search page, not to the previous word.

It used to be a decent app. All these years some unwanted updates totally ruined it. Now it just keeps crashing on my 6s.

Looking forward to LDOCE5 features

- No Split screen in iPad - No phrasal verb search I'm a LDOCE5 lover. After thinking for a couple of weeks, I made my mind to buy this worse version. Without "phrase search" you get no result for very basic search query such as "look forward" and it's disappointing. The only reason that I bought this app was to support LDOCE team. Please update your app!
