Ratings and Reviews
Though they use an authentic Thai speaker for translations, this app is extremely wanting. It does not address tones, I've found several mistranslations (sanook means 'fun' not 'like'), and worse: several mistransliterations. It's one thing to opt out of tones (beginners won't grasp it anyway) but transliteration is quite easy. It's not like Chinese script. Thai is not pictographic.
I gave it two stars because of the Travel Safety phrase 'Those drugs aren't mine!' Apparently, this app is for uninformed Australian college students on holiday.
There is no audio on the words that are suppose to have audio. The audio would be useful.
Free for a reason
Not much in here. A few words, some numbers, and one audio coversation between a tourist and a Thai selling shirts (with an ad plug at the end for travel insurance). You can't pause or reverse the audio "lesson". One star, because the price is right.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
