A Wonderful Little App

Update: app hasn't been updated in at least 6 months.


Don't overlook this one! If you're like me and love pithy little sayings from around the world (in the original languages!) then this is for you. The potential with this app is great, so I'm giving it 3 stars, so it can have room to be improved. One star more, if you put the Native American proverbs in their native languages. The 5th star will be if you put audio pronunciations for each proverb. I know some of them have the pronunciation transliterated, such as the Chinese ones, but hearing them spoken will take this to a whole new level. Plus, I can't read the Armenian ones to know how they are pronounced. Keep it up!
