  • Long Time No Improvement

    By Mohsen from Iran
    As I saw the description of this app, which supports IOS 7 to 9, and read disappointing comments about it, I got hesitated, and were in a dilemma about buying it or not, because l have iPhones 6s plus with IOS 10.1. Anyway, I bought it, and since I have installed it on my iPhone, haven't seen any special bug. The current version, can be improved more. I have some suggestions for enhancement of the dictionary: 1) Having a Leitner box (adding an option for putting a word into the Leitner box), and reminding them in notifications, with an adjustment to the number of words per day. 2) If the bookmarks and Leitner box, could be synchronized with iCloud, It would be more modern. 3) It's better to bring the main parts of speech, for instance countable or uncountable, on the main screen, rather than in word information button, to be more convenient. 4) Adding phrasal verb and idiom search. 5) Adding this ability that if the user misspelled a word, the dictionary can help the user to find the aimed word, like the computer version of LDOCE. In this application it works poorly. 6) Putting a link for downloading the whole audio data of sentences, as an optional download inside the application, that allows LDOCE plays sentences offline. 7) The graphical interface is not vivid and needs enhancement 8) For studying 9000 core words, it's difficult to find the last word the user has studied, if it was started from the last read word, it would be more convenient. 9) Word of the day section, notifies almost useless, and worthless words that don't help neither in communication nor academic settings, if it was from 9000 core vocabularies, it could be more practical, or it was from bookmarked words. 10) For gathering of 9000 core words, it's obvious that a lot of effort has been made, but in this application they can't be used what this attemt deserves. 11) As I look up more words, I notice there are some deficiencies, for example for the entry "amendment", the collocations are missed, while in computer version exist. 12. Allowing users choose the number of words they would like to receive in their notification every day. 13. The time, antenna strength, and other items should be visible while someone works with the app. Thanks a million to Pearson's team, and I really appreciate their efforts and wish them all the best. I bought this application to support them to develop more and more.

    It doesn't work after I backup my iPhone to my computer! I try search words but every word I search cannot be found. Also, it doesn't give definitions of the words I saved or bookmarked as favorites. Please solve that issue! Thank

    I just don't know why you thought there is a need for a 6th edition. The 5th was the best of all. It was actually my favorite dictionary and now regret that I bought this poor one. Less content. Also, If I want to l want to know about a word info I have to click, then a stupid notification pops up and say something around "do you want to see the word information?" Well, hell yea I want to. The layout is not at all user-friendly. I wish there was zero stars, because one star is a lot for it.
  • Features not there!

    1
    By Navid Alemy
    1- Database is much smaller than the previous version. Disappointed. 2- Some features, like voice search button, are missing on iPhone SE. The devs MUST have stated the fact that screen size affects the amount of features you get for THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY
  • Worst dictionary

    By Thanh Hung 789
    I was so impressed with the previous version, that's why I bought the new version with the higher expectation. Actually, It has less words than before, even some common vocabularies don't show up such as empathetic... I would delete this app and never trust long man dictionary again.
