Mate x Netflix x Safari:
Can you learn languages while binge-watching favourite Netflix shows? Now you can. We've made a revolutionary integration. Mate pairs with Netflix player in Safari and lets you look up translations in a very unobtrusive way – by clicking on words or selecting sentences.

This update is all about the Safari extension, so we further improved and fixed some other things, too:
* Toolbar button doesn't do nothing anymore. It translates text that you selected on the page.
* Clicking on flags in the translation tooltip now invokes the language picker.

Perfect app for translation - I’m now have IT on my Windows PC and my Macbook Pro. This app is awesome, just one click and you get the translation. In the previous version, I got blur window UI bug. I reported to the developer and he give this update after few days to fix the issue. Very good app and support! Thank you!

Review by Marlon641

App auto-crashes on launch - Paid the $8 for this app today. After seeing it was updated yesterday (Jan 31st 2016) I figured it was supported and worth the money, but alas. The app will not open at all. $8 up in smoke.
