Whilst this app is handy and good quick reference, it lacks the ability to popup as an alternative dictionary when you long press any word within any app or medical ebooks as was in Android 4.04 Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. I am using Galaxy S9+ now and you manually have to open this app to look for the meaning of the word every time you read. An update is urgently required for Android 8.0 and 9.0 please.

had some minor issues with the license (had a paid version for quite some time but an update to the app reverted it to trial mode). but the support team fixed it in a timely and frictionless manner. thank you folks! the app is obviously epic. been using it for years.
