Nízhoné!!

Diné Bizaad app ayóo shíł yá'át'ééh! Saad ła 'bínáhoosh'aah. This app is really helpful if you're learning the language, it has a lot of words/phrases in the dictionary and is very easy to use. The word of the day part is also a great perk! I love that it sends me notifications when they're posted and there is almost always an audio pronunciation. It's very rare to find good sources for learning diné Bizaad and I am beyond thrilled there are apps like this keeping the language alive. My only complaint would be that there hasn't been that many "word of the day" posts but recently it's been much more frequent. Chxǫ́ǫ́h sxį́h! Ahéhee' bíhwiidoo'ááł.

Great concept

Meladiekar

I was excited to see that it was free but very limited until you buy a premium version. I was hoping to try out or at least navigate a little more before having to purchase something. Very great concept though and I hope it expands and gets more reviews about premium purchases and audio/dictionary expansions.

Disappointed

Southwest gal

The idea of this app is awesome. Many of the components are missing and lacking. There is rarely a word of the day. The dictionary is very limited. And Very few words have audio recordings with them, making it very difficult to learn how to speak simple phrases and words! I would not recommend this app at this time. I hope that the builders of this application continue to work on making it better.
