I am sorry to hear that the longer descriptions are a problem for you when you use the app. Can you post some screenshots so I can see what you mean?
I have an Android phone and I can’t recall seeing “four little tiny lines” when I review on my Android phone. Do you have an iPhone?
Some of the definitions have been shortened already, because I noticed that some definitions were too big to fit into the boxes that appeared on my phone screen, and I am trying to work out what the maximum definition size is.
On the other hand, I have to mention that some of the previous definitions were way too short, actually, because there were single-word definitions for some common words which meant that numerous words had the same definition and therefore caused frustrations with users of these courses.
As a result, I tried to disambiguate words with overlapping meanings - say “en ort” vs. “ett ställe” vs. “en plats” (which previously all had the word “a place” as the required translation) by adding examples, common compound nouns and more translations. In my efforts to improve the definitions, some of the entries in the course have gotten a bit long, I’m afraid.
I am very grateful for your feedback and would be happy to shorten definitions to make the course easier to work with for app users. Can you take screenshots when this problem crops up in future and post them here?
Tusen tack i förväg!
