iPhone X screen support please

I do like the dict contents of this app, it is just unfortunate for me that this app is ‘still’ not taking the advantage of the iPhone X, Xs, Xr, and 11 (pro [max]) screen ratio...

I do hope that one day this app would still be updated or available on iOS app store in the future
