Notes

Version 1.1 adds the ability to add notes to entries. In its simplest form a note is just a snippet of text, perhaps a usage example or a quotation from a book. Notes are stored in the user database, separately from the dictionaries, and are therefore included in your backups and can also be copied to a computer using using iTunes File Sharing.
