Decent, but missing one critical feature
I've noticed many of the other reviews say that this app is missing many basic words (probably words like "the"). But the fact is this isn't ASL words, but what is called SEE (seeing essential English[a form of sign language in which each word is signed]). Prime example: in ASL, to sign "I am fine" you would only sign the word "fine", while in SEE you would sign out all three words. ASL is a set of signs that represents an entire sentence or though, which is unsaid in this app. So, what this app needs is a defiantion of both ASL and SEE, and explain in detail the structure of sentence in both forms of sign language. Over all, a great app to keep up on and learn new signs.
Another thing that would be increadbly handy is a "Need to know" list. Make a list of signs that everyone should know, like "Again","Please", "Slow down", and "Finger spell". Flash cards would also be increasing handy as well.
Best ASL app hands down!
I enjoyed the first version of this app immensely, but the 2.0 update makes it absolutely indispensible!
All of the included words are now grouped by catagory. The addition of making your own custom "My Words" list is very helpful with reviewing and quizzing yourself on just the words that are important to you.
But without a doubt, the best new feature to the app is the "Memory Aid" button with each sign. Now the instructions for making each sign are accompanied by notes that explain the meaning behind the motions or gestures. These are very helpful in retaining what you see.
I heartily recommend this app to anyone that is interested in learning to sign! Easily one of the best values in the App Store!
Helped me pass my ASL class!
I've downloaded most of the sign language on the app store and this is the best one so far. The new update makes this app a must have with the editable lists and the addition of categories is a nice touch as well. I took ASL1 last semester and I used this app almost more than my books to study. I'm currently taking ASL2 and it still has not let me down. Every once in a while I'll find a seemingly common word that's not listed but it is pretty rare, oh and the numbers should go up to 30!
