    By fraustypawz
    Soon as I look up a word, switches to an ad pop-up and I can barely finish reading the full definition page😡.
  • Please fix missing transcriptions

    By rchrdyan
    I do not understand why you decided to “simplify” pronunciation transcriptions in your latest version. For instance, the word “kilometer” used to have multiple pronunciations in the older version but now has only one. The web version still works perfectly.
