This version is clearly worse than LDOCE 5, sorry for that! It has been several years that I am a fan of Longman dictionary, but this version really sucks! Can you please return its user interface to the version 5! It was perfect! With this new version, the installation is horribly long and non-ending! and when you can install it on your android phone, then you find it worse than version 5! Before the arrival of version 6, Longman was standing at the top! But it craches now! Horrible!

The version is getting lost in all of its media files. It requires me to download it again, but it cannot be. I install it again, then the app extracted the database for nothing, it is still ongoing. This app is one of the most useful dictionaries I have, but I cannot use it for now. Hope this will be addressed. The part of the app I like is the core vocabulary. I make another updated review once this issue will be addressed.

I had the version 5 which was awesome. The audio was stopped to support and I installed this version. App craches alot, while searching a new word the database does not filter the actuell matched ones. Minimizing it and goeing back to dictionary every thing goes to reset.
