True, but on the other hand, in another 61 years Barcelona is going to be underwater and whatever portion of Sagrada Familia is completed by then will be mostly of interest to scuba divers and artistically-inclined fishes, whereas Pleco 4.2.182761 will still be creaking along as one of my grandkids posts occasional TikTok updates on the progress of Pleco 5.0.

You may have chosen the blue pill, Mike, but perhaps your kids will choose the red one.

We've already added that for 4.0, the main limitation at the moment is that you have to bring the images in from files or your photo album since we haven't yet added an image search feature - trying to figure out a way to do that that a) works in China and b) doesn't get our app a 17+ rating is dicey.
Perhaps you could let users upload photos for each character to Pleco's server, and share those photos back with all other users. Also, implementing a way to contribute by selecting which photo look best - as a poll - could also help keep a higher standard, and would take away the risk of having low quality photos visible to the millions.

Honestly, that's even worse, since we'd then have to take responsibility for that content ourselves - moderate that server aggressively / police it for copyright violations / etc. And end up in all sorts of situations where somebody would be mad at us for moderating a particular photo and somebody else would be mad at us for *not* moderating it and it would be impossible not to end up in the middle of a fight.

Can't wait to see what happens to the flashcard list if this feature was implemented.
