I must be stupid...I paid $5 for this and didn't read all the info. I expected to have all the bells and whistles and then they asked for more money for one of the functions! (the voice function where you say a word and it spells it for you). They very carefully described this as without ads..and that is what it is! No ads but not an all inclusive app...shame on me!
I love this App. While I am familiar with most definitions due to my years of very wide reading I sometimes do not know the pronunciation. This Dictionary solves that beautifully with its pronunciation feature. Great for words I don’t know and even better for pronunciation of words that aren’t used that often.
Developer Response ,
This is a classic "reader" problem that we can well appreciate- knowing what a word means, but not knowing the pronunciation. As readers ourselves, we are pleased to hear our app has been so useful in sorting out this predicament.
Happy reading and thanks for using our app!
I have the premium version, after last last last update the pronunciation function hasn’t been working...please fixed
Developer Response ,
In this version we changed the audio settings to respect the volume settings of your phone. For example, if the audio or ringer is off on your phone, the pronunciation button will not have audio. Try to turn on your audio and re-try the pronunciation. Thanks for writing your review!
