Download problems


Tried to download English to Japanese. Kept getting Stream error. Too bad

Disappointing in many ways...

Future of Tokyo

I paid $13 for this App, but like the other reviewers I was very disappointed in the audio quality, for several reasons:

1) The sound volume is so incredibly low, unless you are in a totally silent room, you can't hear it at all.
2) The quality of the recording is poor & "tinty" sounding
3) Many of the recordings are "clipped" right at the end, which means either they abruptly (and loudly) end the spoken phrase in a jarring way, or the actually phrase sounds truncated.

Also, visually, the App is really uninspiring in design, and each phrase section is very tiny - I mean, in general, the layout & size could be much better.

If any or all of these things were addressed, I would gladly re-rate it and give it more stars and a much better review.

I mean, what good is a Japanese Talking Phrasebook that you cannot hear?
