Say no to ads

Excessive ads. Crashes/freezes often

Good to Bad

This app worked great. I used it when I moved to catch up with all the slang in my are. However now that I finally updated this app it shows an ad after every request. It's so annoying! Would be 5 stars but the ads bring it down!

This app does exactly what it says! I really don't have a problem with the ads that pop up every time. You should download this app!
