    Dear EnglishMoribund,

    Thank you for the inspiring words. I can assure you we are not giving up. It's just that we are short of funding and because of that each of us had to engage in other parallel projects. We do experiment with new features and if time permits, we are willing to release some new extras soon.

    We do have already support for shareable sets (we call them word lists), as you could see in this video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-tNVfD7fFI . Here you can see some shared sets in English: http://lexicum.net/#en

    If you are interested to get a sneak peek into our experimental features or discuss how Lexicum can be more useful for you, please vote at http://lexicum.uservoice.com or send an e-mail to martin@lexicum.net.

    Once again, thanks for your support!

    Best wishes,
    Martin

    We are happy to announce our Facebook communities for two more languages: German (https://www.facebook.com/groups/lexicumde/) and French (https://www.facebook.com/groups/lexicumfr/).

    Thanks for the suggestion. Thanks to your advice we are working in this direction. Currently you can find a fresh source of new words from our Facebook communities.

    For English visit our page (http://facebook.com/lexicum). We also have dedicated learning communities for Spanish (https://www.facebook.com/groups/lexicumes/) and Buglarian (https://www.facebook.com/groups/lexicumbg/). Please contact us if you want to become part of a similar learning community in a new language.

    Hi Sam,

    Thank you for your feedback. You are right, accents are very important in Spanish, French, Italian and a number of other languages. In Lexicum they come from the dictionary sources that we use.

    The way Lexicum currently works is that it saves words as you search them. If you search for a word in a particular gender or in a particular tense, you will add it to your vocab book in the same form. Similarly, if you search for a word without typing the accent, you will get translations without the accent (which could lead to ambiguity). However, if you search for the word with its accent, you will be able to save the accent.

    Same happens when you search for a word in the your own language (for the sake of the example, let's say English). Then you will get Spanish translations with accents, and you can choose the exact translations you want to add to your own vocab list.

    I hope this helps and please keep sharing with us any behavious that is different from what you expect.

    Warm wishes,
    The Lexicum team

    Dear Deni,

    Thank you for sharing your idea. It is thanks to feedback like yours that we can make Lexicum better. Did you notice that on your mobile device you can filter vocabulary by entering three or more starting letters? If you like this functionality, we can work on expanding it.

    Let us know what you think.
    Your Lexicum team

    Dear Alexander,

    This is a very interesting idea that we haven't thought of so far. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    As you can see, we are currently working on a number of other ideas that other users have suggested and supported. The votes that ideas get here help us determine which ideas are most important for our community. Because of this, I'd like to encourage you to express stronger support for the ideas you like. You can do this by casting two more votes (you can cast a total of 3 votes per idea) in support of this one.

    You can further try to promote your ideas with your friends. Once the idea gets in the 10 most widely supported ideas, you can be sure that we will work on implementing it in near future. It is very easy to get to this stage right now. You only need one more person's support.

    Once again, thank you for helping us develop an exceptional vocabulary builder.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Thanks for your interest in Lexicum.

    Even though this is not a feature that you can currently access via the app interface, we can do this for you via e-mail. Please, write to me at martin@lexicum.net providing me with the username (which is the e-mail you registered with) of your account. I will then be able to send you a list of your vocabulary and its translations.

    Best wishes,
    Martin

    Hello Hristiana,

    Thanks for your comment. The examples are especially helpful for us to understand what you are talking about.

    What you are talking about is very important for language learning. Sooner or later everyone should try to learn foreign languages without referring back to their mother tongue. This helps both with expanding the active vocabulary, and with developing thinking habits in the foreign language.

    Fortunately, the idea of having examples was already suggested to us. We have already recorded it here (find it at http://lexicum.uservoice.com/forums/239781-user-requests/suggestions/6040661-provide-examples-of-how-words-that-i-search-are-us), and it has accumulated some support. I'd like to invite you to support it with your votes too, because this will help us know that we should work on this one with a higher priority than others.

    As for synonyms, this is a new idea and we will definitely consider it. It is somewhat similar to the word definitions that we currently have for some language pairs. Until this is done, you could add your own synonyms in the customisable translation/interpretation field: http://lexicum.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/337830-add-your-personal-interpretations-of-a-word I know it is not the same, but it takes time to develop all the cool features that you come up with.

    Anyway, keep up the enthusiasm and keep thinking on new ways Lexicum could be useful to you or anyone else.

    Best,
    Martin

    Dear Stoyan,

    Thank you for taking the effort to write here.

    Unfortunately at this point we do not support Windows Phone. This is because we have a very small team and we have made the strategic decision to prioritise iOS and Android among mobile devices. We also have a web app to be used on any desktop device. If you have any of these, you can use them to build your vocabulary and later when the situation improves you would have access to your word list and exercises.

    Also, if this request for Windows Phone support attracts more votes from our users here, we would definitely consider it with a higher priority.

    Again, thanks for your interest.

    We have planned to address the first part of this issue: http://lexicum.uservoice.com/forums/239781-user-requests/suggestions/5654587-let-me-define-subsets-of-my-wordlists-for-me-to-fo

    The word-matching suggested in the second part is an useful exercise that we are considering as a possible feature at a later stage.
