What are users saying about Common American Phrases

by X####:

If you want more people to purchase this application (I have already recommended it to my students), please fix the cross reference feature (at this point, users have to search separately EVEN THOUGH a cross reference is given for a certain entry). The dictionary alone (its content) hardly justifies its price here anyway - see the number of downloads so far. For roughly just 2000 entries, this application should be PERFECT to attract new customers - including by word of mouth! Right now, I would say that the content is GREAT but the application verges on the MEDIOCRE. Looking forward to an update to fix the problem! Besides, a full-text search facility would make me give this application 5 stars!
