  • Ad free ?

    By *dm
    I got the app, paid for the ad free upgrade $2.99 yearly, home page has what I consider ads, “weekly challenge, word of the day, and word games”, then I look in the App Store and see I can get the premium version add free for $4.99, not a yearly charge. What’s that about ?
  • I used to

    By Poogiepoo
    I used to be able to highlight certain words that I like but such features are not available anymore. 😞
