I love it but it needs improvements
Please make it work with drag and drop on ios 11. It is very important! Thank you!
Please update this wonderful app. I will suggest it to all of my singer and conductor friends!
Horrible!!! Money back!!
Lot of wrong words!
It looks like the other four reviews we're planted, but it's actually pretty decent. Not flawless: it put an extra schwa in the phonetic spelling of médecin. But it could tell the difference between fille and ville.
It's better than the Collins French dictionary app--where some characters show up as ?. If you want an app that will give you pronunciation without an English definition (I.e., you're trying a no-English approach), this is about your only option.
Also: the app Phonetix makes a good companion... It will pronounce the phonetic letters you don't remember.
