Hello Sachith,
Thank you for this very useful dictionary. I have it on Android and am quite pleased to use it.
Sometimes when Synonyms are not available I get the message to try online.
Q: Can I use this dictionary on my computer when it demands to go on-line?
Can you enlighten me further on this?

    Sachith · June 4, 2016 at 9:01 am


    Thanks very much for the feedback. I’m afraid this app is only available on Android and iOS.

Charith Willarachchi · May 20, 2016 at 8:24 am

Hi Sachith.

Appreciate your great work on this application. Please enter the definition of the word “Decan” to your app. That word relate to star signs. Like, a star sign has 3 decans as we fall into according to the each sector of the month that we have born in.


Charith Willarachchi.
