Need more work
I was very excited to purchase this app however it always get stuck as a customer rightly said. This is very annoying. I have to get out of the application to come back and start again. Can someone please fix it. Having said this, I think it was a very good attempt if the problem can be fixed. Many would buy the app if it performs well. I told some of my friends when I first bought the app now I have to tell them to hold back, unfortunately I paid for the app before I found the flaws. Looking forward to an update that would correct the errors. Thanks.
This app surpasses expectations, please don't waste money on other expensive apps, they don't measure up to this one. This is it!. It is fun, easy to memorise. Its simplicity makes learning a breeze. The voice is so clear and real.
I am just sorry I spent so much money on other apps before I found this one. Kudos! Please make more language apps. Thanks!
The app is good and helpful but it has a lot of bugs. It constantly freezes whenever I try to record a word and does not load back up until I restart my iPad. Also, if I successfully record a word it plays back a loud noise. Needs A LOT of improvement!!! Not worth $2.99.
