Ratings and Reviews
This is a great tool to use if you already know basic ASL and want to expand your vocabulary. However, there are some basic signs missing (example: “today”). I appreciate there being multiple signs for the same word shown, but it would be nice to have a description for each word such as what dialect/region/age group the sign comes from, signs not to confuse with (example: you don’t want to confuse “paper” with “clean” and vice versa).
But! This is a *free* app. And for that, it’s a very good free app. But if there can be an app with those (and more) improvements made, I’d be willing to pay for a “pro” version.
In the meantime, I’ll be suggesting this app to my ASL classmates. :)
Needs more features
I’m teaching myself asl with a handful of apps. To compare to others, I like that this one includes a lot of phrases vs single words, and I love the word of the day feature. I wish I could save all of the signs I’ve reviewed on this app somewhere to go back and reference them again, and maybe a feature to test me on the signs I've previously reviewed. Over all it’s solid, but would recommend for people that have the basics down and want to add more casually to their repertoire.
Theres just one thing..
I think it's a good way to learn asl especially when you're first starting out but the one thing I think the app should have is a description under the video explaining the differences between a word that is the same but has two or more signs. For example like under clothing there's two different signs for boot so it should have a description explaining when you should use it.
