What's New in Version 1.1.2
Fixed a number of videos, removed obstructive video controls during playback, made buttons easier to tap for children
Kind of dissapointed
Had the free version and updated, thinking I would het more useful signs, and some are, but some seem very complicated for young children (around 1) and other useful ones, like juice, are not on the list. A bit disappointed.
I paid $3.99 and none of the videos will play and the audio isn't working. So...I'm only seeing flash cards and I need the sign language
Best baby sign language app, but needs more baby words!
Hey, I love this app, but I also have a lot of suggestions to make it even better, below. (For people choosing between this and other apps, you want this one because the videos use deaf professors to demonstrate the signs, so you really get the sign correctly, unlike other apps that use cartoons, or hearing people who don't seem ti sign very authentically. Try looking at the sign for "sad" in the free versions of different apps to see the difference.)
1. You're missing a lot of critical words for babies, like pee, poo, diaper, sleepy, nap time, bed time, "dirty diaper", ouch, yummy, tastes bad. My baby is 8 months, and we don't need words like schoolbus and curtains. We need a lot more basics like bottle, cup, nursing, don't touch, danger, be gentle, all gone, hush.
2. Please change the horizontal videos to vertical so I don't have to keep turning the phone!
3. The pictures really need work. They should be related to how a baby would use the word. "Finished" should be a baby who has finished her food. And you should make it "all done!" for babies instead of "finished". Photos would be better than that weird clip art!
4. It's hard to tell the exact meaning from a single word sometimes. Like the sign you have for bathroom - does it refer to the room in the house, or is it like "I need to go potty?"
5. It would be more useful to have little phrases like that - the things we say to our babies a thousand times a day, like, "Do you have to go potty"? "Do you need a diaper change?" it might just be the same word with a questioning facial expression - I don't know.
6. I don't think you can use the same videos you do for the adult versions, because the signer should mouth the word you would use with a baby. "Potty," "pee pee" and "poo poo," not "bathroom". "All gone," not "finished." "Mama" and "Dada," not "mother" and "father".
Also, I need to see the signer do the facial expression you would make when talking to a baby. As an example, the female signer who does "mother" makes a strange, languid expression that doesn't seem at all like how you would look saying "mama!" to a baby.
7. I think it would be more engaging for babies to watch if you had kids doing the signs. (The lady is wearing an off-putting amount of makeup to a child - maybe she could at least lose the lip liner?)
8. Layout and functionality: I don't like that the video automatically goes back to the illustration at the end. It should stay on the video, frozen on the frame that shows the sign. And you should be able to tap it to make it play again.
9. It's not very useable for babies now. Here's my suggestion: divide up the screen into three frames. In one, have a photo (not clip art) of shoes. In the next, the printed word shoes. If you tap on either of those, you should hear the spoken word shoes. The third and largest frame should be a still from the video, showing the sign for shoes. When you tap that, it should play the video. If you did the layout this way, babies could use it by themselves. Babies can't use those little video and audio icons. (Just make sure you DON'T have a button on that screen they could accidentally hit to go back to the main menu, because then mama has to keep fixing it.)
10. I think you should have a quiz feature where it plays the video of the sign for shoes, and then the baby has to tap the right picture from among a few different ones.
11. In the sign for "dog," the man's hand disappears off camera, so you can't see the sign!
Thank you for your awesome app, and I truly hope you add all these features! Soon! :-)
