Adjusted UI for iPhone X!
- Review reminders now work again. This took longer than expected to fix since I was barking up the wrong tree, and the first tree had snakes in it.
- Words in reviews are now appropriately redacted again.

Multiple Vaults for language learning
It would be very nice to be able to manage multiple vaults for learning words from other languages. Other than that, I think it may be perfect.
Favorite Vocab app
I’ve used this for years and love it. Most vocabulary apps are about flashcards and flipping a word with an answer. The ability to look at definitions and type in the spelling has worked well for me. Hope more features are added—like controlling when you want to work on words that you haven’t come across yet. In my word vault I have over 10,000 words I’ve selected from years of reading that I like to keep fresh. However, the app doesn’t allow me to control when it goes back to old words. I’ve had this app for a couple of years and have only gotten to around word 7,000, mostly the result of inactivity for a couple days or so which means I have to go back over words I’ve already learned. If you could provide more control over this or create a feature when the app doesn’t go back over old words at midnight every night that would be great.
Good but could be better
Great app to learn vocabulary, but I find the definitions not to be up to par with other dictionaries, and a bit lacking of good examples. For example, for the word ‘ilk’ you get “a kind of person”, which is quite a simplistic definition. For comparison, the Oxford English Dictionary defines it as “a type of person or thing similar to one already referred to”, Collins defines it as “a type; class; sort (esp in the phrase of that, his, her, etc, ilk)”, and Macmillan as “of its/that/their particular type or kind”.
You can add your own notes in the app, but I find that I have to do so with most words I save, which is a big hassle. It would be great if you could choose which dictionary to get definitions from.
