Successfully updated. The BEST iOS dictionary.
GREAT dictionary. A superb upgrade to what was already the best iOS dictionary, and well worth the cost. The use of color within the dictionary is subtle and helpful--a nice enhancement to the UI. Enfour has done an outstanding job translating one of the top printed dictionaries into electronic format, where it is even easier to use. A thoughtful touch: Enfour added two easy-to-reach wildcard keys to the top of the standard iOS keyboard. I'm very happy with AHD5, and appreciate having this dictionary with me wherever I take my iOS devices. I successfully updated AHD4 to AHD5 on an iPad and then on an iPhone. After verifying my Wi-Fi connections and Internet access, I used iTunes and USB sync to install the AHD4 3.9 update on each device, then performed a second sync and installed the (new) AHD5 app on each device. Then I launched AHD4 on my iPad, waited for it to fully load, clicked my iPad's Home button, then launched AHD5. AHD5 displayed a screen with a "Buy" button, a "Restore" button, and an "Enter Code from Printed Version" field. Near the Buy button, the upgrade price of $12.99 was displayed. I tapped Buy and entered my iTunes Store password. The Buy/Restore/Enter screen disappeared, and the AHD5 table of contents appeared. I then repeated the process with my iPhone, but when I reached the Buy/Restore/Enter screen, I tapped Restore. I entered my iTunes Store password, the Buy/Restore/Enter screen disappeared, and the AHD5 "table of contents" appeared. Afterwards, I emailed Enfour support to describe my experience and to find out if the in-app purchase was registered with the iTunes Store, so that, in the future, if I bought a new iOS device or "reformatted" one of my current devices and installed apps from scratch, I would be able to tap Restore in the "free-to-download" AHD5 app and activate the dictionary. The answer: Yes, so long as I am logged into the same iTunes account I used to purchase the upgrade. If anyone does have problems with the upgrade, please contact Enfour support and allow them to help you. Due to the structure of the iTunes App Store, Enfour had to come up with a roundabout way to allow AHD4 customers to upgrade to AHD5. I give them credit for doing that. One other thing I learned: the activation coupon included with the hardcopy AHD5 is good for only one iOS device. This policy was set by the publisher (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). If you activate AHD5 with a "hardcopy coupon" and later wish to move the dictionary to another iOS device, please contact Enfour support and they will reset the code to use on your new device. (Once they do this, the app will cease to work on your old device.)
