Pretty good

I am able to learn a lot of Hawaiian words but I don’t know if I’m pronouncing them right because I thought this was a free app but you have to pay to be able to listen to the pronunciation

Had some glitches

I like the app for the most part, but it does have some glitches. Namely the audio glitch. Every time I attempt to play audio, I receive an error message. If I press the audio button a second time it usually plays… Not always. Searching for Hawaiian words using the okina is problematic. I’ve tried using both the Hawaiian and English keyboard and nine times out of 10 the word does not appear. I have to manually search by scrolling to find the word I’m looking for. There are many words the dictionary doesn’t contain, but I refernece my hardcover dictionary in those cases. Mainly I am using this app for pronunciation, so audio is extremely important to me. For the record, I have the full paid version. There are also some major words missing. Like the articles A and THE (He and Ka). Or the hysterical sweet potato (ʻuala) which is translated kweeki pokako. That’s not even a real translation. For the price I paid, I’m a bit dismayed.

Can't use unless you pay

It was suggested to me that to keep my older brain working, to try learning a new language. Both my mom and uncle had dementia before they passed so it's been a fear that I'll get it too. I happen to be at the age where people start forgetting things but for me, it could mean much more than just aging. Anyway, I decided I wanted to learn Hawaiian because it's such a beautiful language, so downloaded this app. I can't use it unless I buy packs. That's so disappointing, especially as it's one of only two free apps.

Developer Response ,

Dear Angelyn Krout,

Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate it.

We're sorry to hear that, but this is the only way that we could keep updating and supporting our app, so we could give our customers the best possible experience.

There are some functionality in the app that you could use for free and some you have to upgrade to unlock.

But look, don't worry, our main aim now is you try our app completely for free on us so you could enjoy learning the amazing Hawaiian language.

We'd love if you could try our app once more, but this time completely free, we'll send you a promo code so you could upgrade the app for free.

Just get in touch by replying back to us or get in touch with us directly via email or our support website URL


It'll be our pleasure if you could give Hawaiian words another chance and give us your feedback once more having tried it with all the features unlocked.

We hope you have a nice day

Kind regards,
