I love the dictionary and hate that you keep insisting I rate it

Missing important features

Hello, I like the app however it lacks photo graphical complement to the terms, why would this not have been done from the start? I like the word of the day, but I almost never go into this app because it lacks the above quality. I use two references Taber’s sold under unbound medicine and this app. As already mentioned, seldom do I use this one, disappointing for its price. I am tempted to ask for a refund unless this situation is rectified.

This was an expensive and useless app. I'm a NP and it hasn't found any terms I need for over three weeks. I would like my money back.
