Just a doubt, is porting of iGoogle(which is not android app) gadgets is valid for this competition?
Isham Mohamed Jun 5 at 3:46
Yes, In Contest overview page ( Under Rules, Terms, and Conditions point 2 Promotion Overview, they stated "Entrants will also become educated on migrating an existing published app (from an alternative platform like Android, iOS, Amazon Kindle, Blackberry, etc.) and porting it to a Windows Store app. " So I think this is a valid entry.

iGoogle is also a platform..

I just read banner which says iOS/Android apps. You have developed a nice application.
Isham Mohamed Jun 6 at 2:57
Thanks for your feedback :)
Isham Mohamed Jun 4 at 15:18 This is a Vine video clip I have made for the upcoming upgrade of this app. That is yet to be certified

Just looking at the screenshots I would say that the horizontal scroll bars are quite annoying. Maybe try breaking the lines so everything is better to read?
Isham Mohamed May 30 at 15:05
You are quite right, but some descriptions of some words are longer..

Why is this a paid app when the site itself is free? Why not use advertising as a source of revenue instead of charging to purchase the app?

I am from sri lanka, unfortunately Microsoft Windows 8 ads program not available in Sri lanka. But the current price is very cheap comparing to other same category apps...

Can you share a bit about your experience porting this app?
Isham Mohamed May 24 at 20:09
Previously this was originally a web service from and I saw this in iGoogle gadget (…). Then I ported this to Windows 8

Isham Mohamed May 23 at 18:56

Isham Mohamed May 27 at 20:27
The next version is available to download now.…
Isham Mohamed May 23 at 8:40
I have added the 'Speak' button to pronounce the given word in en-us language in the next version and submitted for certification.

I have downloaded this app, this is great. Please add speak button to speak some words.
user2129013 May 21 at 17:21
Probably a better app. Please add voice support for words. UI looks calm and cool. I own this app and this is very useful while studying...
Brandon Featherston May 20 at 21:18
Possibly add voice support? I find that sometimes it is very difficult to even come close to the correct spelling for certain words. If the app could allow me to speak the word and then show me a list of words that could match, that would make this amazing.
user2129013 May 21 at 16:30
Yes that will be very useful..
Isham Mohamed May 27 at 20:26
Speak button added. Thank you for your suggestion

Please improve your graphic designing for app, I bet you will rock in Windows Store. And yeah, offline dictionary will be bliss for WinRT devices. Best of luck!
Isham Mohamed May 20 at 14:57
Thanks you so much
Isham Mohamed May 27 at 20:26
I have improved the graphic design.
Abu May 18 at 7:08
If this works without an internet connection(may be after one time download) then it will be great
