Ratings and Reviews
Worth the money
I’ve had the paper version of this dictionary for years and love having the whole thing in my pocket with the added bonus of pronunciation and word of the day to keep me learning.
Such a shame.
I loved this app so much that I bought the in app purchase to get rid of the ads and to get the dictionary offline. I study French A Level and this app is invaluable - beautiful layout, clean and easy to read... BUT, since getting a new iPhone and redownloading this app, has reverted back to the free version, despite me paying before on the same Apple account! When I try restore purchases in settings, nothing happens!
I have contacted the developers and they haven’t been able to help me. They asked for a screenshot of my invoice - which I sent - and I’ve had no reply for two weeks.
I am VERY annoyed and would please like this to be sorted out as this is an app that I *used* to use every single day. 😥
Great dictionary, but awful interactions
Love the dictionary, but I loathe the really poor coding around two aspects.
The first is the incessant nagging to give it a 5-star rating. Sorry, no, that is a completely crap approach to interacting with your customers, and deserves a one star refiew all by itself.
Secondly, it has a terrible bug in it with the offline facility. I’m often in a place with no internet connection, so offline is vital. It works well except that there is bug in the app which - for no apparent reason - turns off offline mode on a random basis.
The app then attempts to connect to the internet, promptly fails, and then displays a dialog to that effect. Dismiss the dialog and it immediately tries to reconnect, fails, and shows the dialog once again, in an endless loop.
Major bug that renders the app useless in offline mode.
(A simple fix would be to add an option the the alert dialog to re-enable offline mode, and thus stop the endless loop).
Fix these two bugs and I’d happily give the app 5 stars.
