Ratings and Reviews
Perfect developers with great products!
The only problem has been solved quickly! When I used the app say it from Oxford at noon, after I paid for American English word, I could not download. The app told me unable to reach server while there was nothing wrong with my internet connection. Then I sent an email to kind developers, just after several hours the problem was solved. Now I am going to enjoy it! The developers are really great because they do care customers! i'm greatly impressed by the efficiency with which them addressed this issue.
It’s wonderful again!
All the content I had with the old paid version is now in this freemium version. Good job!

Nice concept but
There’s something wrong with this app. Help me with pronunciation but there’s something wrong with wrong with an in app purchase. It’s not a problem that you can’t afford a price of an in-app purchase. But it’s a problem that the app exits itself while downloading content of an in app purchase. If an in app purchase still persists its problems, it will become very very disappointing
