Big help for quick translations while workin on iPad

I use LEO's website on the computer, and this app, whenever I work with translations on an iPad.
I like the quick and profound results when searching for translations in english, spanish and/or german.
I do not like, that the app looses it's focus on the line, where you enter the text (the web page keeps the focus in a really good way, so you can just start typing when you return to the webpage again and again). Is it not possible to implement that here with the app, too? Right now, after changing to the app first you have to tap into the entry field. That surely can be made better.
Thank you!

Great dictionary

A fast dictionary with easily identifiable and pertinent definitions, as well as supplementary grammar information which is organized in a way as to keep the form low profile and efficient. The ability to add terms to a personal list for vocabulary training is a huge plus. For example, working through your lessons during the day and adding terms to your list as you look up definitions, and reviewing them later that evening. Down one star from 5/5 due to the vocabulary list not being synchronized between my iPhone and chrome web session.

Go-to App For German Language

I‘m studying in a University in Germany and part of that includes learning advanced German. The best thing about LEO is that it gives you many possible meanings of words, not just the most common usage. For the quality of the content, they certainly deserve to be supported by the small annual subscription amount which you can decide whether to pay or not. They don’t cripple the app if you don’t subscribe like many other language apps. While it’s true you can use their website on a smartphone, the app interface is much easier to navigate.
