Big help for quick translations while workin on iPad

I use LEO's website on the computer, and this app, whenever I work with translations on an iPad.
I like the quick and profound results when searching for translations in english, spanish and/or german.
I do not like, that the app looses it's focus on the line, where you enter the text (the web page keeps the focus in a really good way, so you can just start typing when you return to the webpage again and again). Is it not possible to implement that here with the app, too? Right now, after changing to the app first you have to tap into the entry field. That surely can be made better.
Thank you!

Great App! Room for improvement.

Leo’s website is an amazing tool for German learners. It has an excellent dictionary and a super helpful Trainer tool that lets you efficiently record and classify each word you look up, and then practice these words with different exercise methods.

The app is also great! But it doesn’t have all the exercise methods of the Trainer that the website has.

Please improve the app to make it even more helpful! Right now the app’s Trainer has only the flashcard and drag-and-drop features. It would be an app that I would recommend to everyone if it had all the other Trainer features that the website has.

Word lists cannot be edited

The app is very helpful for looking up words and creating personal vocabulary lists. However, there appears to be no way to edit your lists once you’ve created one. For example, if you want to remove a word from a list or even your master list, it’s not possible. You can continue to add words indefinitely, but you can’t remove them or move them from once list to another. This is a big drawback.

Developer Response ,

Currently it is indeed not possible in the App - but you can always log in at our website https://dict.leo.org and edit your word lists there.
