Ratings and Reviews
I travel often and have been needing an app that helps me with USEFUL local language. I’m not trying to become fluent in 15 languages, but would like to be polite and learn some basics in the local languages. This app has been so helpful, I literally recommend it to every traveler I meet. The locals in every country have appreciated my simple use of their language, even if it’s just a simple thank you.
A Little Outdated But Still Useful
I purchased the additional in-app phrase option and was surprised to see such phrases as “I want to buy a roll of film” “Where can I go to jog?” and “The line is busy.” They may want to update those at some point but, on the whole, the guide is useful and it’s wonderful to hear each phrase spoken aloud.
Don't buy, doesn't restore in-app purchase
This upgrade crashes. After reinstall wouldn't restore the in-app Globetrotter bundle that I had purchased. Poor support from apple and random house. Pathetic ripoff.
Problem Update, it's a bug, I found a work around: Roll back the app thru "Time Machine" to version 1.1 (and refrain from updating until developer fixes the interface to the Store bug.) Restore would work as it is meant to be. As an aside: Apple should do something about it's update policy. One should be able to disable updates on certain apps. The "Update All" button is an invitation to disaster.
Update 2: version 1.3 does fix the problem reported above with a caveat. Don't UPDATE, rather, delete the app and re-download the new version from the App Store. If you don't you would experience crashes. One would think the developer would include these instructions. But alas, I gave up on the Random House and on Apple. For that the app does not even deserve the one star previously granted.
