New update problem

I have used this app for years and I was so delighted to have this app for my daily application. But today I updated the app and it dose not let me use it again in offline mode. I have to say that I am not able to purchase it since all pay pals do not work in Iran due the sanctions against Iran. I would appreciate if you let me use the previous free version because I really need this great app.

Dear Parysa90,
New version has released, use 1.40

Concerning bug fixing

I’ve been using this app for some time now and it is one of the best dictionaries there is and it gives the most accurate definition of the words, However there are 2 main issues

1. After some time, the application works only if the full version would be purchased and due to sanctions against Iran, there is no interaction between banks and it’s made impossible for us to buy
2. Some of the words in the dictionary have no definition at all , there are some example phrases for the said word but no definition.

Your kind consideration and prompt action addressing these issues is highly appreciated
