v4.32.15288 is out. It's FREE, no fee. - -My Review: I find the app to be a buggy, clunky and slow. The website actually works better. The process of recovering my password was a consistent failure. I had to create a new account with another email address. Once you log into the app, it goes through a very slow download of further assets, including its dictionaries. For reasons I cannot comprehend, the (very dull) GUI insists upon taking up an entire desktop every single time you boot it, despite having previously shrunk it. Annoyingly, it phones home to Google Analytics and Ads. I blocked that crud (via Little Snitch). Often, button links inside the app fail to do anything or are very slow to respond. I also got sick of the watch cursor showing up for no reason. - - In Summary: Use the website instead.

I didn't want to sign up for an account which is apparently needed which also implies it stores your data somewhere other than iCloud or Dropbox. I'm not really into that. The software itself is essentially their web interface and doesn't really meet usual standards and expectations either for an OS X application.
