Ratings and Reviews
Purchased premium in addition to the application
I purchased the British words and sound chart at premium option. It says successfully restored my purchase. But I cannot see anything new or extra. When I click on that part( to the British words and sound chart )
It only says purchasing option again.
Can you help me please?

Hello, to access the British English words you've downloaded, you need to go to the Look Up tab (bottom left of the screen). Type in the search bar at the top of the Look Up screen to find the word you want to practise. To access the Sound Chart, tap the Sounds tab (the fourth one along). Do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more assistance, as we'll be happy to help.
First, in the option of my words, there is a limitation. I can not add after 10 to 12 words. It should be unlimited.
Secondly, you should add an option that we can learn common words like 3000 or something. It will be more convenient for learners.

Hello, thank you for your comments about Say It - we are always pleased to hear user feedback. You should find that you can scroll down your My Words list, and save as many words as you like. With regard to the dictionary set, we wanted to offer a really comprehensive list (35,000+), but your point about common words is valid, and something we're already thinking about for future releases. Please feel free get in touch directly at email@example.com if you'd like to!
Designed helpful but in poor stability
Love your sound wave idea, really helpful for correcting my pronunciation, but cannot bear with the extremely unstable program. Hope you can spend some time to improve it. It could be an excellent app for English learner.
