    This price drop, do you think it's a sick joke (in the light of the recent Japan tragedy) or a coincidence?

    I've heard of people profiteering from tragedies.

    I'm not too clear on 'giving stuff away because of a tragedy.' What, exactly, is the joke?

    I don't get it.

    Seems like a nice gesture from the developer in light of recent events.

    It's not a joke, "survival" apps have always had premium, paid versions. i think it's really nice that ha put it now on for free

    When it comes to travel dictionaries 'survival' means knowing the phrases you need to get by in a foreign language rather than information on how to stay alive. It's just an unfortunate coincidence...

    A sick joke would be changing the price from free to $20 to profit from the disaster.

    Changing from $20 to free means the developer is losing money in order to help people on the ground out there. That earns respect from me.
