Could be a lot better
Most phrases are basic and there aren't enough to justify the $2.99 price. App is only good for someone with no knowledge of Hawaiian words or how to pronounce them, so I only learned a few new phrases. Very disappointed. Hasn't been updated since 2011. More phrases please!
I love the audio feature. To find a phrase one has to search line by line. Should have a feature that allow user to type in an English phrase to get the Hawaiian phrase.
There are no instructions and no cross-referencing. Navigation is limited at best. And - NO SOUND! I was looking forward to hear what the phrases actually sound like since there apparently are no apps that provide that capability. A no-star rating is what is deserved. 😾
