Differences in SoftenStorm's LiveBook Subscriptions

Updated: Feb 18, 2021

LiveBook – a scanning dictionary or reverse dictionary app which uses iPhone OCR camera, for scanning texts to capture and lookup words in its dictionary with a highly sophisticated translation engine from Google, having in-app purchases and subscriptions that will come with benefits which help you to learn the English language better.

There are three plans in LiveBook's subscriptions, which are school student subscription, college student subscription, and enthusiast subscription. The school student subscription is free but has only 58,000 vocabularies in the dictionary, and it's free of charge. The college student and enthusiast subscription have more than 150,000 vocabularies, as the same as none-of-subscription, but you need to pay for a monthly fee.

All subscriptions come with unlimited times of translations and relevance images in lookup results, which the none-of-subscription doesn't have. Moreover, the none-of-subscription needs to purchase additional quotas, if it's depleting, which costs around 0.06-0.10 cents per query.
