HiNative - Learn Languages
By Lang-8, Inc
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
HiNative is a global Q&A community for language learners and people that are curious about the world.
Ask questions, get answers, and connect with native speakers from over 170 different countries!
Audio Uploads - Want to check your pronunciation? Curious about a certain region’s accent? Need some handy phrases for your upcoming trip? Just record your questions and ask with your voice. Let the world hear you!
Question Templates - Asking questions made simple. All you need to know are the words, phrases, or sentences that you need help with and our question templates will do the rest, automatically translating your questions into other users’ native languages.
Pictures - Not sure how to write something? No problem! Some questions are better understood with a picture. Signs, menus, labels, and even that rad Chinese character you’re considering getting a tattoo of--just snap a picture and ask away.
Get Suggestions - Traveling soon? Moving abroad? Ask the people in your destination the important questions that only locals can answer. Get tips about local customs, famous landmarks, the best restaurants, or anything you want.
Unlike a dictionary or web search, HiNative gives you customized example sentences, responses to your follow-up questions, and tips to improve your pronunciation. With HiNative you get access to the best resource for language learning: native speakers. And as a native speaker yourself, you can help out too!
HiNative supports over 110 languages, bringing the entire world to your fingertips. It’s never been this easy to connect, help, and learn. Try HiNative today and change the way you study languages for the better.
HiNative is run by the creators of Lang-8, one of the most successful and popular language learning websites around, with over a million users worldwide.

Great potential, still needs work
App is not quite there yet quality-wise: notifications seem unreliable, there are some weird artifacts when switching apps (bottom bar gets hidden), and it’s frequently slow.
However the community is there, you do get answers to your questions fairly quickly. The devs seems to have gotten greedy, some basic functionality like searching for past answers or bookmarking questions is behind an in-app subscription.
All in all I hope this does well, the idea is pretty great.
