The "improved display ... so you can quickly find what you want" makes it actually much slower to find what you want. It takes a few taps EVERY SINGLE TIME to actually open the entry you want, when you don't close them all altogether, because it is written too small on a smartphone. Really annoying. I totally understand the idea behind it, and it's a good one, but it is actually not practical at all and a total loss of time (and patience!). Please get it back to how it used to be!

Generally a good resource, which I would recommend to others. It's unfortunate that it isn't possible to copy and paste from the entries. It's nice that the app has a flashcard option, but tbh any serious learner is going to need the functionality of something like Anki as their primary flashcard tool. So the ability to copy entries would be really useful. It would also be good to be able to scroll down to see all content even the keyboard is open, e.g. on home screen. (Edited.)

Recurring subscription plans only, without any possibility to purchase the software once and for all => uninstalled. The programmer's answer is the usual BS about having to cover costs, but so does every company, professional and individual on the planet, yet millions of them thrive just fine by selling instead of renting their products. Offering both options (purchase and subscription) would be smarter than losing all those who might be willing to pay once, but not forever.

I understand the frustration. But this has been a side project that I pay for out of my own pocket for over a decade now. While the ads and subscription will bring in more money, I will still be paying for a significant portion of the project out of my own pocket. If you have more questions, please contact me at
