Where did the synonyms and antonyms features go?
I really loved this apps. It really help me as an ESL student. But after the update, I couldn't find the synonyms and antonyms features anymore. I really disappointed, it more like that the apps were "downgraded" than updated.
Everything has been great so far, except favorites are not synced to web saved words, I hope developers can make this feature then I can read saved words on both web and mobile app.
The audio pronunciation just work with the hands free headphones and it doesn’t work with the speaker of iphone 8. Also it doesn’t have the specific part for synonyms and antonyms in iphone 8. We need a update please help us.
