Really Unhappy with the app

Dear Sirs. I have bought ‘Say It’ with the premium option of 35,000 of UK words, but majority of the times when I am interested in knowing a correct pronunciation of a new word, the word is simply not available in there. Let me give you two examples from today: (1) mendacious, (2) egregious - both words were used in a recent article in the Economist, and both are not available in 35,000 words in ‘Say It’. So my purchase has proved to be useless for my purposes. I am wondering if it is at all possible to cancel my purchase and give me my money back? Would really appreciate it. Kind regards. Anya
