The EA Voices Apps have been updated. The Android version is now in Google Play, and should flag up if you already have it installed. The iOS version is being reviewed by Apple now; this may well take a while.
The new version has a new look and feel, as seen to the right. The main design idea was to make it look and feel more consistent throughout the app, which – it being a hybrid app – also means more like the EAVoices.com website.
The website and hence also the app uses responsive design to optimize both portrait and landscape mode. To the right above is the portrait mode, and below is the landscape mode:

Just drag-and-drop it to your bookmark bar, and then click that whenever you highlight a term somewhere, and get direct search results.
