- (2016-07-12) qt qt: Good!But the frame including "powered by..."is very redundant.Hope it can be removed.
- (2016-03-29) Ngan: would be perfect if there is japanese-english option
- (2016-03-20) Gary Hall: It's a fantastic application and it's on the right track, but I hope the pop up dictionary cover more vocabularies rather than having to head to the Imagict website all the time for the definition. The vocabulary that I am specifically talking about are science and anatomy terms. If the popup can further expand the vocabulary to them, it would be a five star for sure!
