Ratings and Reviews

Still needs some refinement

Tai23

I decided to purchase this app even with the problems that the first reviewer meantioned. Dispite the apps claim to "fixing" many of the audio errors, I went though all the word entries and found over 60 entries that were still playing the wrong audio file, several duplicate entries within the same catagory, 3 missing audio files, and also some English spelling typos. Still 60 audio errors out of 2000+ words is only a 3% error, which I'm sure they will get around to fixing.

They could have done a better job at cross referenceing words to multiple catagories. For example, fish is under "Cooking", but not under "Pet/Animals" and not under "Fauna" where you find other animal words. The word search feature helps out here.

I wish they would have added a basic verb congegation table, and one for irregular verb forms.
I have not tried the record and playback feature, so I cannot comment on its usefullness or accuracy.

Overall, I like this app. It's very helpful to hear someone pronouncing the words correctly so you can get the stress on the right syllable, which could change the meaning of the word entirely.

Words on screen don't match what is being pronouced

Needs to be synchronyzed so the displayed words match what is being pronouced.
