    I used to comment that it's 'The best among dictionary apps for wp8 so far.' But now, I would like to urge the dev of this app to update it cos:1. The daily word section is unable to load;and 2. It crashed when I was looking for certain words;

    The app is wonderful.. 4star because There is a problem I am facing while using this app. When I type few words to search the app closes automatically. For example when I try to type 'What', as soon as t is keyed in the app gets closed. Another concerning thing is recently searched words. The app should store all recent searched words.

    Works offline, which is good. Takes up a lot of memory, which is not good.
