Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By featherbabylove

    The developer who answer the reviews is not the same from support desk

    The person who answer the review tells me that whatever I’m Observing as a bug it’s not, actually he or she says it’s a expected behavior. The support desk tells me that is something it should have been fixed in the update but it wasn’t . I can’t make myself understood if the support desk hardly ever answers nor even check the pictures of video where you can observe the bug and replicate it. If the developer is going to answer me to my review , I think that the minimum thing he or she could is to make make sure someone have previously answer to me from support desk How can support desk tell me it’s a bug and that it should be solved with the update but it isn’t after so many months And then you developer comes here and answer reviews telling me it’s not a bug, it’s a expected behavior The minimum thing your support desk could do is to review the email and at least open the videos and pictures proof that there is a bug But support desk or customer service hardly ever answers

    Really happy with this purchase

    Been using Oxford Advanced Learners’ Dict for 7+ years but their price, bugs and subscription policy just recently got ridiculous. Longman has wayyyy better ios and PC app that works more smoothly, has more user friendly interface, boasts a greater number of word/collocation/idiom/thesaurus entries and pictures, all for the same price if not better. Should have switched to using Longman much earlier.

    Great app, but with some glitch.

    The app is great, but there seems to have some glitch for the offline example sentence reading. After I purchased and downloaded the offline example sentence, it always show no internet connection, when my signal is poor. Hope the bug could be fixed in the future release.

    Typing error

    Dear Manager First of all I have to say that your dictionary is a very useful and also impressive guide for all the learners of english language, I really appreciate your efforts, you did a great job, but recently I found a typing error in the entry of proper name “Richard Wagner” in your dictionary. unfortunately the name of his famous opera, “Tristan and Isolde” was written: “Tristram and Isolde”. if it is possible in your upcoming updates correct this error. Thanks a lot with best regards
