One of the Worst Apps


- The speaker icons are WAY TOO SMALL to hit, so I cannot make it speak very well. (It speaks every 3 or 4 hits for me.) I actually reported this problem in 2011, so the maker clearly does NOT update this app.
- All the "recorded" voices are very robotic, so you cannot learn French from this app. This again is a big problem that I reported in 2011, so once again, the maker clearly does NOT update this App.
- All in all, this is one of the worst Apps I have ever downloaded: Poorly written, horrible recorded voices, and no update ever. (I've already deleted it.)

Just got it - love it!


As I wrote above it's perfect and gives me all the phrases I need. Everythings pronounced fluently also I have no idea how they do that!

Great app


Speaks both languages and has a ton of phrases. Definitely the best phrasebook I have found so far. Two thumbs up.
