Love app when it works

I have an issue with the screen turning black and after reading the comments I do t want to delete app and reinstall because people stated their purchases weren't restored. I love it when it works because the video is clear and can go in slow motion. I've always been a fan of Marlee as an actress and her teaching ASL is awesome but I purchased all the lessons and don't want to chance losing them all by deleting and reinstalling, it's not an issue of them never working it's that they stopped working so it was not a download issue. I'm losing my hearing and want to learn ASL as my granddaughter learned to sign before she could speak and I like teaching her new signs and look forward to teaching my other grandchildren.
Good luck trying to get tech or app support the site it takes you too is not helpful at all. Very disappointing

Really great app!👍🏻

I'm ten years old and definitely have a interest in signing. This app is a great way for anyone to learn sign language and it provides for all ages too. So far mine hasn't had a black screen but I also have a iOS (Apple iPhone) that might be a problem. Otherwise this is a wonderful app! I would like to make an update to my review I have had this app for about two years and I absolutely love it but when I got on they other day some of the screens were black and so far only my "you" lessons have been working. :( so please if you can fix this problem I know I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you!!

Excellent! Wish I didn’t have to purchase stuff though...

I love this app because the signs are done very clearly, and unlike another app we tried, this one allows you to tap to get it to do the sign in slow motion. This is extremely helpful for obvious reasons.
The woman who does the signing is very nicely dressed and well kept, so nice to have to watch to learn, and she mouths what she’s signing very clearly as well.
The only gripe I have is that to be able to progress further than the initial few things, you have to pay for lesson packs. They’re not expensive, but I’d prefer to be able to do them for free.
