Hello Joe,

Thank you for testing our application. Here are some comments:

The new 1.2.0 release should solve this size problem (we are testing on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, too). As I said in my previous post, this 1.2.0 improves the support for tablets, with fixes like this but this is not a real new specific HC UI organization yet.

This is an important point which will certainly be refined in the future. This takes time to find good integrated solutions and is not a purely technical problem, so... I cannot really give you a reliable schedule yet but I'll keep you informed on the progress...

Some of the free downloadable dictionaries are fine, but I want the ability to use a "real" dictionary while reading and I'm willing to pay extra for the dictionary.

We probably can communicate with external dictionary apps, as a simple solution. We'll check it and give you more feedback soon.
