Not finished

I like this app. It is simple and easy to use. There is one major problem.
When starting with a name like BOB we are informed that it is a "Short form of ROBERT" which is fine. Here (and everywhere else) the link doesn't actually go anywhere. This is a serious fail. I hope this will be remedied, as it makes using the app somewhat awkward.

Not what I expected

I thought it would tell me what names meant. It should have had a free light version or now a return tab.
