Adds a setting for high-quality sound downloads for example sentences. (The default is off. Previously it was on.)
Leaving it off will speed up download times for mobile WiFi and non-broadband users.
(Even setting it on, downloads over 3G will still be the smaller size -just as before.)

In dark mode issue
can’t see words typed in search bar when in dark mode stage
Developer Response ,
This has been fixed.
The update record here only traces back to 4 years ago, but I bought this app in 2013. I’m so surprised that the developer is still updating the app after 7 years later. There was a tough time when this app was taken off, but developer still provided the walk around and continue supporting the app. Thank you for so many years’ support. Love this app and your effort to make this app so great. 👍🏼

Fine but not fine
First of all, can we change the dark mode manually? Dark mode colors don't go well together! Second, the app keeps crashing after the latest update!
