    This dictionary is missing many words compared to the online version and many other dictionaries. Two examples are diablerie and contumelious, which I have both found in Merriam Webster and OED online.

    I bought it twice: once on windows phone 8.1, then on Android Galaxy tab 's. It is really good value for money. However, the interface for WP 8.1 1 is much more better than that of the Android version

    The app doesn't allow me to save audio to my SD card since I've updated 4.4.2 kit kat from jellybean. Fix it please
