What's new

Important: iOS 6 is no longer supported. Please update your device to iOS 7 in order to update this app.

We have updated the design of the app for iOS7, and added a few other minor improvements. For example, you can now resize the text in the word list independently from the text in the dictionary entries, and full text search results give you the closest match first.

All your Favourites and any downloaded example sentences will be preserved.
