This is a very laggy app. In 2019, it needs to be polished. UI can be improved. For instance, whatever is searched every possible way of meaning should come. Database is not as much rich as the Banglaacademy Dictionaries. I can understand a govt. project has its constraints but you people are far capable of this. So, make us proud by providing an app that could represent our language and capability to everyone.

Has so many drawbacks. Too slow, some entries aren't enriched with meaning. “Bangla to English" & “English to Bangla” these two options could be merged in only one name like Bangla↹English. বাংলা অভিধান entry isn't in a satisfactory level. In the beginning page, u wrote “Followed by Bangla Academy” which gives wrong impression abt the dictionary, as it means Bangla Academy followed this dict. which isn't correct. It should be “Following Bangla Academy”. Clickable meaning should be available.

Very good initiative and developed nicely, though it takes a time to load when you try to open it. Add more words, nothing else to complain.
