Customer Reviews


This app is extremely helpful. Can you make it so that shaking will bring up a new word without needing to close the window? It's tedious to close it and re-shake every time I want a new random word. I'd prefer to be able to simply shake again and have another random word show up.

Needs improvement

The app is user friendly and has a ton of words for translation. The only drawback is the audio pronunciation is so fast, you can't really hear clearly how the word is said. This is a key factor in trying to learn proper pronunciation. If they were to slow down the audio or show the pronunciation it would be a great improvement.

Audio didn't work!

Slow, weird layout and audio didn't work. Ever!
