Some great feature missing from the old app

I actually very impressed by the care of your old customer which is automatically transfer the purchased from the old app instead of asking everyone pay the same thing again, not like other developers👍

But few features missing from the old app, specially "reader", it's really convenient for a whole paragraph, also "flashcard" is missing which is great for student refreshing new words.

One improvement suggest, if we can reorder the main tab for what we need often will be great

Developer Response ,

Many thanks for your feedback. We will review your comments and suggestions for future updates. You might want to try using Shortcuts to look up words as you read - kindly see Settings > Guide to using this app > Using Shortcuts. Thank you.

Good app but please add ability to download Offline Sentences

A very good dictionary, but please can you add ability to download offline sentences for those of us who study without internet access.

Edit: The other Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary both 8 and 9 (OALD) has this function. The user can download British or North American sentences separately to be used offline (500MB each). Why is it that the other publisher, Oxford University Press, allows this, but yours Oxford University Press China cannot?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry but the audio of example sentences will only be provided online due to the large file size. We are sorry for the inconvenience. -Edit: The file size is actually much larger with this app but we will reconsider this when resources allow. Thank you for your understanding.

Can’t find phrasal verbs and idiom directly

For instance, let say going to check what does “go on” mean.
If you type the whole phrase “go on”, it couldn’t allow you to select PHR Vs tab to find it.
Instead, you have to type “go” on PHR Vs tab and find it in tons of record about phrasal words of “go”.
Unlike the previous OALECD can make it.

Developer Response ,

Please type in 'go on ' with an extra space at the end, then you can tap 'PHR Vs' to see results of phrases containing 'go on'. Thanks!
