    Entries do not fit on page

    My biggest complaint with this application is that, when an entry and its associated synonyms are pulled up, the print is EXTREMELY small. The page can be enlarged with a "pinch," but then the text runs off of the page, even when the unit is turned to landscape view. One must move the page back and forth to read it.

    Also, the "links" to associated words do not work unless you increase the text size a couple of times and tap quite hard.
