Everybody should have this app!!!
I absolutely love this app!! I'm taking time out to write a review because this app has become essential. I use this app leisurely and academically just about everyday. I have and will continue to use this app and recommend it to others. I don't even bother with other dictionary apps and it helps me to pronounce pharmacy words for work and school. I appreciate and thank you for making this app!!! Just one suggestion, it would be great if I could create folders for different groups of words (e.g spelling test, top 100 in pharmacy school, SAT's etc).
This is an amazing tool. The simplicity of only having to tap one button to get access to so many words spoken so clearly is amazing to me. I have struggled with language-decoding words, pronunciation and spelling all my life. Now, I'm willing to take the extra five seconds to type in the word and the results have been amazingly empowering. As a University instructor I have always been slightly embarrassed by my learning disability regarding language, now I openly use this in and out of the classroom and my life is better for it.
Perfect for performers.
I'm a voice-actor and use this app nearly every day. I've tried others, but this is efficient, quick, and accurate. I particularly like the way they give both American and British pronunciations when when the dialects differ. Siri can almost always DEFINE a word or phrase for me, but this app actually allows me to HEAR it. I wouldn't be without it. have to admit though, Siri definitely sounds sexier… --Bob Barnes
