Ratings and Reviews
I use Howjsay on the daily! Words that I haven't understood the full meaning of or new words are always found in this app. The entomology feature has solved a lot of friendly arguments between myself and friends about the origin of certain words. Can't live without it!
I read a lot and there are often words that are rarely used in day to day speech but frequently used in print. It is really helpful to know the correct pronunciation in case I wish to use the term in the future.
Sets a standard
English pronunciation has endless variety, but it’s nice to have a standard of comparison. I hold this app in such high regard that I happily paid the modest price even though the free web version suited my needs adequately.
