Pretty huge collection of literature.. Loved it. But seriously work needs to be done on the app's UI, bugs, and much more. For example, mostly when I go to the Search section, the app closes. Also when the connection is lost, the already loaded screen doesn't show. Hope it will be fixed..

The app crashes sometimes at random, and I miss an English-to-Urdu dictionary or word search. Other than that, the app is perfect.

The app on its own is great. However everytime I open it, it remains on for hardly a minute and then shuts down. Please fix the problem.
