I got the iOS version of boQwI’. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

I’ve made a lot of Klingon dictionaries. Different formats. Different apps. This is the first one someone else created that is good enough to spare me from the many hours of updating my own most recent version, since I like using yours more than mine. Certainly the interface is better.

First, because "sein" is longer than "be", but also because for visiblility reasons that it just looks better, especially when a definition constists of multiple words I wasn't sure whether to add sein for each one or not, so it was simply dropped.
