  2. Great app for Vietnamese/English. Sometimes when I look up a word, it says "xem (some new word in red)." It would be great if you could just click the word in red to jump to that new definition instead of having to search again. Hope you can add that feature!

    2. hey another question, is it possible to ignore the space after a word when searching? because i use autocorrect, a space is automatically added after a word and then the app assumes the space is part of the word and the word will not sure up until i delete the space after the word. for example, if i search for chào, if there is a space after chào then the first word that pops up is chào cô.

    3. It's possible.
      Noted it and will do it in next version

  4. It has English to Pashto vocabulary (Manijeh (najeeb wardak ) English- Pashtu dictionary) but it isn't Pashto to English. It can be better.

  5. Hi Xung Le, could this app can share between friend using this app.

    I mean: if my friends use this, we can share word together and discuss about that word. To make us more fun and deeply understand about that word.

    Thanks,

    1. And more question about "- Sync word lists (history, bookmarks, notes, ...) across devices (iPhone, iPad, Android...)". We see this feature in "Preferences" it can syn to dropbox, however we don't know how to use it because right now we cannot syn between different devices. Could your clarify?
      Thanks.

    2. Hi Tuan,

      Yes, I like that idea very much. I will try to make it possible in future. It requires a lot of work. So don't expect it to be done soon. :-)

      About syncing with dropbox, just turn on dropbox sync on multiple devices with the same dropbox account. Words should be synced.

      There is a bug with dropbox sync in current version, It will be fixed in next version.

      Thanks

  6. Hi Xung,

    Thanks for the great Dictbox apps.
    am using terminology right now, I try to generate a xcallbackurl so that I can search words though terminology, but I failed, could you help me for that?

    thanks a lot

  7. Hi Zhou,

    Are you using Chinese version? If so the url should be: dictboxzh://word

    For example: for the word 'hello', the url is: dictboxzh://hello

    You can test this by enter this url on Safari app.

    If you are using another version of dict box, just replace zh with its language code.

    Thanks

  8. Hi, Xung. First of all I want to thank you that you have developed a great application in iOS and Android systems. It is very useful for me. I used the iOS and the Android versions of the software. But, please correct me if I am wrong, I could not see the flashcard feature in the Android version. If there is not, could you please add that very useful feature into the Android version of the software? Thanks again. Regards...

  12. Hi Xung Le, I'd like to know if you have any plans to up the Portuguese version in Android as well.

    I've been using the iPhone Portuguese version and I loved it.

    However, I've just moved to Android now and unfortunately I couldn't find it.

    Many thanks!

    1. Hi Nick.

      Could you please download the general version of Dict Box for Android and install the Greek package instead?

      It's just too many languages. I would prefer this way to avoid submitting too many languages.

      Thanks
