Please go back to the old version/make a layout option where the buttons for example sentence etc. were on the bottom of the screen. Why do app developers put buttons out of reach, I genuinely wonder sometimes if they have ever used a modern smartphone....

This is an adequate Japanese dictionary app but the user interface could use some work. I think the biggest reason I don't use it more is that there isn't a very clear separation between dictionary entries if there were a comma separating entries that would go a long way to making this app more usable.
