I totally get that the developer has abandoned this app, but I came here looking for alternatives. I was pleased to see 3 prominent user discussion links right at the top of this MacUpdate page for "Is there a better alternative to WordBook?", "Is WordBook really the best app in Language category?" etc. However, those links don't go anywhere at all. Can MacUpdate please fix that, or take the dead links down.
