Good to search bank related words teaches so many things

Apps Customer ,

The Picture is too small and vague on my iPhone4S!

I am so glad to buy this dictionary during its 30% off in the last day sales.

However, I first tried to view the section "Writing Letters and emails" which makes me quite disappointed that those 2 pictures are far too vague to be able to read on my 4S. I tried to tap on it but it cannot enlarge. Please kindly improve picture problems in next ver. of program. The problem is also found in Marketing Concept four Ps.(possibly also vague in every picture.)

I'm a LDOCE 5 and Longman idiom dictionary app user. (I also love to use Oxford advanced dict.)
It is very glad to see there is a LDOCE 5 PLUS published. I read your app introduction with its Q&A and hope there will be truly an possble option for current old LDOCE 5 app user to upgrade and be able to pay in app to buy the activator function too.

Please revise the picture as soons as possible in order to let me get the most out of this so called "Business" Dictionary.
I am curious and eager to reach the content that should be accessible!

Thanks a lot in advance by a longman dict loyal user!

P.S. I will also try to use this dict to search some other words in famous magazine like "Economic Times" to see if it explains various business terms well.
