Take up too much space

The app size of OALECD 8e is only 1.26GB, but Oxford Eng-Chi Dictionaries is over 2.4GB. That’s why I don’t want to use this latest app. Why not make it smaller? That can be easily done by making it possible for users to delete unwanted dictionary data in this integrated app to free up space.

Cannot sync Bookmark and Search History between devices via iCloud

As title, so sad. In order to push me to upgrade to this new app, the App of the 8th edition become so slow.Not happy with that. The only good thing is that it is free for prior purchaser.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry you are not happy with the app. Bookmarks and Search History are now shared between devices using the Export/Import function instead of iCloud. We have not made the 8th edition slower after the new app is launched but if you are experiencing trouble using the 8th edition, please do let us know via the app's Settings > Contact Support and we will assist as soon as possible. Thank you.

Please bring full-text search feature for phrases, idiom and example back.

Full-text search feature for phrases, idiom and example which is supported in the previous version does not work in this version. If the search key word does not match the entry, it will return NO MATCHES.

Developer Response ,
