However, one feature that it lacks for me at the moment (or I just haven't discovered how to cope
with this yet) is linking several words together - that is, different verb, noun, etc. forms to their origin. For example:
different forms of German adjective with endings: -e -er -er -en could be linked to their base form and they all
would be updated simultaneously, rather than each one as another word.


You can link similar words manually, e.g. via tags.

I know this doesn't work too well with the iPad (it works, but the experience isn't the
same as on the desktop) because of the html frames

Has anyone tried this with other tablets (Android, Kindle Fire, etc) and if so, does it
work like it does on the desktop?

Is it possible to delete several words at once (or better: modify the language) ? I've add about 100 words in the wrong language and it is so boring to delete them one by one...
EDIT: I've figured it out, thank you.

I've tried it on a 7" Android tablet. It works, but it's not a pleasant experience. There's just not enough screen real estate. Also, I have problems with the dictionary frame showing up on first showing. I have to reload the page for it to show up. I used the standard browser that ships with Android. I haven't gotten around to trying Dolphin or another browser.

I just use LWT since a few weeks and I have to say i'm very happy to discover this program and i'm surpised
and impressed by it's effectiveness. I used to read texts with the iBooks app (on the iPad), to look up the
words I don't know in different dictionary's. When I found the correct translation, I marked the word(s) in the
text to make a note with the translation. This was not a bad way to learn vocabulary for me, but it was very
slow and it was much work to make flashcards for every word in Anki.

Now that I use LWT, it's so much more easier to look up the translations and to put everything in Anki. It was
not easy to install the program, altough not impossible for someone who doesn't know very much of
computers (like me) if you follow the instructions step by step. Any any case, it is definitely worth the effort to
try it.

The program could be improved on several aspects, like a solution for all the scrolling for example, an easier
way to install the program or a possibility to add a fourth dictionary, but i'm very satisfied with LWT and I
would recommend this program to everyone who learns a foreign language.

I read the texts mostly on my iPad and it works well, but only with short texts. I usually copy a news article or
a Wikipedia article. The scrolling gets very annoying in the case with longer texts.

Importing text frequently? Still manually highlighting and copy & paste into LWT?

Well, I've found that Clearly (plugin made by Evernote) helps. It's strips away the crud on a page to view only the article. So, you can just Ctrl-A to copy the article.

Helps just a little. A LWT-specific plugin would be better, obviously. Anyone made one?
