I am able to access Guifan, but on most searches I just get the notice that that dictionary is not available in demo mode and that I can switch off demo dictionary searches. So I guess Guifan has not been implented completely, yet?

Steps to reproduce: type a word in English, then start switching dictionaries. After you switch to the last dictionary in the list and tap the button again it switches to a dictionary from the list of Chinese-English dictionaries.
This is actually by design, it's a feature we specifically added (by popular request) on iOS - since our software comes with two free Chinese-English dictionaries but no free English-Chinese ones, people often started out looking up English words with full-text searches in Chinese-English dictionary, and a lot of our users found that they actually preferred that in some cases (saves the extra step of cross-referencing words in E-C definitions to try to get a better handle on their proper usage), so the idea now is that without having to change languages you can scroll through every entry in any dictionary that matches a particular English word.
However, if you don't like this behavior you can turn it off via Settings / Dictionary / Search Settings / Full-text / Integrate into English - to avoid confusion for users who start out with only C-E dictionaries, buy an E-C one and can't figure out how to go back to full-text searching of their C-E dictionaries, we need to leave this option on by default, but we certainly realize it's not desirable for everyone.
