I don't think this app is made by Longman. The English used in the menue and settings isn't all correct. For ex., it asks me "Are you rate app Longman English Dictionary?" It won't let me sign up, saying the email address is invalid, which is not. I would gladly buy the paid version, but now I have doubts. I even won't be using the free version bc the ads are with sound which cannot be turned off. Of a note, I want to buy the LDOCE plus activator thesaurus but it's not available for Android.

Honestly, I really love using this app, for it assists me in order to figure out delicate words which I do not know, and it also appears a new vocabulary every day, so I am able to study a variety of fascinating words in my daily life. However, I suggest the inventor to disappear ads from this app, for whenever I open up this platform, I usually see ads, so I sometimes feel boring with advertisements. Thanks!
