Can't be installed on modern versions of Android I bought this dictionary some time ago on my first Android phone. I've upgraded to a new phone and I can't install it. It requires Android 2.2-2.3.7. I've got Android 4.3. Do people use 2.2 through 2.3.7 these days? How many copies of this app can be sold these days? Since I can no longer use the app I paid $25, I'd say this app is worthless.

It's the best dictionary, and best kept secret. This has always been my favorite dictionary when I was an iPod Touch user. The etimology, voice pronunciation, impressive inclusion of reliably accurate technical words, and all the easter eggs, all make this dictionary fun and informative. Because of 'droid rules, they limit the size of the app by putting much of it on the server. Couldn't use this app at all while out of the country because it needs wifi or 3G. Shameful for such a powerful dictionary, and I hope for future work-arounds.

Server connection? Really? Couldn't use this app at all while out of the country because it needa wifi or 3G. Shameful for such a great and expensive dictionary. 5 stars for apple version. A shaky 3 stars for android.
