Love the simplicity of the app. Very clean and easy to navigate. My only suggestion and may be a deal breaker is not able to copy out the list of favorite words. How many words can I store anyways? Can you at least make it so there's an option to copy to clipboard the entire list of favorite words as text? I want to back them up as I learn, it's a long journey to be well spoken. Thanks!

This app used to be available offline for free but now I'm being forced to pay for that feature which I'm not doing. As well as the keyboard doesn't automatically pop up like it used to, when I try to type a word. So I'm forced to tap the search area then tap again in the same search area right after. How annoying. This app used to be much better in the beginning!

I've used this app for years but ever since the most recent update, it is VERY slow to load. I actually thought it was stuck and closed the app to restart but no improvement. If I wait long enough it loads and functions normally (refresh still slower than previously but still ok). The app launching speed has led me to just look words up in a browser. If I'm in the middle of a project I need better response time, if for no other reason, to manage my adhd!
