What's New in Version 4.02
Multitasking feature added for iOS 4
Just what I was looking for
Just what I was looking for: a cheap phrase book and dictionary. I can't see what other users as complaining about: there is a dictionary as well as a phrase book and speed of the spoken French is fine.
French audio too fast
You have to listen to the French phrases about 4 times to absorb them because they are so fast. If I was that fluent, I wouldn't need this app. Spoils an otherwise useful app.
Not as described
The title of this app says it is a phrase book and dictionary. It is a phrase book only and there is no dictionary. I'm not expecting anything full and detailed but you can't look up any common nouns. A complete waste of money.
