Was great, but now not working Have used this app for ages and it did the job really well. But since an upgrade to Android 4.4 it won't install any of the dictionaries so is unusable.

Couldn't download any dictionaries I've been using this app for a long time with no problems whatsoever. However I recently changed phone and when I re-downloaded the app, I couldn't install the in-app dictionaries. The download progress pop-up appeared and quickly turned off with no download at all. By all means, please fix this bug.
