  • App server hosting The site is served from a jvm-based server. On github: github.com/ashikasoft
  • Static hosting (github pages) The entire site is static, and querying is done by querying files from the client side. May run slowly, but does not need any special application server.
  • Android This version works faster, because data is installed on the local device.No internet connection needed.
  • History of previously looked up words
  • Long-pressing makes it easy to copy and paste results.
