What happened, Kabuto? This used to be one of my most-used apps because it helps with my vocabulary. An update later and I can't download the dictionary anymore. What happened? =/

WAS the best Japanese language app WILL NOT download dictionaries into my new phone. I'm so unhappy about that. Useless now . Demoted from 5 stars to the lowest possible rating. My old review follows: "I'm really impressed with this app in class, for fun and in Japan on holidays. I'm giving it 5 stars despite 1 bug - it freezes a lot in ICS on my Galaxy S2. You can restart it easily. Just a small irritation."

Was the best Was a great dictionary. Easy 5 stars. Unfortunately after reinstall on new phone dictionaries don't download. Like others have also reported. Waited and tried again. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Doesn't work. Developer seems not to care, still no fix. Will wait a little longer then look for a replacement.
