Best pronouncing app I’ve found

I love this app; hate the name. But who cares about the name?

I have it on all my devices. They should imbed it in the system software. There are so many such apps in which the pronunciations are simply wrong. This app is even offers regional, alternate and divided usage pronunciations. Plus, I love the urbane, erudite voice employed: sort of understated upper crust British.

Extremely useful!

I use Howjsay on the daily! Words that I haven't understood the full meaning of or new words are always found in this app. The entomology feature has solved a lot of friendly arguments between myself and friends about the origin of certain words. Can't live without it!

Most helpful while reading my Wall Street Journal Opinion page. Beautifully written but several words I didn’t know the meaning. You of course were able to give me the pronunciation & meaning. Articles make sense. Depend on your app more than the Webster Dictionary app.
