What's New in Version 1.3.6
- bug fixes
Seariously bugs & false charged
I hate to write a review this bad the previous products by lp have been good. Not only does this app have a serious bug in its audio portion and payment system but the company did not respond to a polite and detailed message about the flaws. The audio files do not load many times correctly, fail to pick up correctly after a flawed partial loading and charge your iTunes account multiple times. Even after successful loading and working they randomly are disabled. In my case in the middle if using the program while traveling. To make matters worse the new fast talk program disabled my previous lp phrase programs which will now only take me to the new product. No warning. The combination of serious bugs, inappropriate charges, disabling prior purchased programs and non response goes beyond understanding. Stay away from this program.
Meh, at best
I'm pretty disappointed with the app. I understand the concept of "basic phrases" but there are some places in this that I feel Lonely Planet really skimped. For example, under Eating and Drinking one of the options is "special diets & allergies" there are 8 phrases all to do with being a vegetarian; nothing to do with allergies (unless it's to red meat, I guess). Under non-alcoholic drinks you have 3 choices (compared to 7 under alcoholic): coffee (without sugar), soft drink, or water. What happened to tea, milk, fruit juices, creamer for the coffee, or even diet sodas? A lot of the other selections are just as minimal. The only reason this is getting 3 stars is that the program does work as advertised. Really LP, after using your travel guides for years, I expected better.
Efficient, stable and awesome
I have purchased all the languages in this app to get around in the unknown. I am going to Europe for 50 days and need to get around some how but the language barrier will affect. The app is great because you can actually hear how it's pronounce and spelled . I would like to see Dutch on here. Thanks for the great app.
