inogolo is devoted to the English pronunciation of the names of people, places, and various things. The app accesses thousands of pronunciations (most have audio clips) in English. You can browse the pronunciation guides to see how to pronounce various names organized in categories. 

You can also search for names to pronounce. Note that the name search will search the full set of names, including names that are not in the guides. 

You can store selected names in a favorites list for easy access by selecting the star icon on the screen of the name you want to save.

inogolo has two purposes:

- To provide an easy to use tool that will help English speakers pronounce difficult and commonly mispronounced names
- For non-English speakers and those for whom English is a second language
- To provide an easy to use tool to help pronounce common English names, since many English names seemingly follow no phonetic rules

A few notes:

- For ease of use, the phonetic pronunciations are represented using a respelled transcription with no special characters, signs, or symbols as in dictionaries or the International Phonetic Alphabet.
- The pronunciations of names from non-English speaking countries are not in the accent and language of origin and are 'anglicized' to varying degrees. The pronunciations are in American English with the General American accent. The goal is not to mimic Spanish, German, Chinese, and Polish accents, but to provide a tool so that names are essentially pronounced correctly.

The inogolo mobile app is powered by owned by inogolo, LLC.

Great app!

This app is very helpful especially for countries and biblical words that I never know how to pronounce.

What a waste of 99 cents and memory on my phone. If you can’t pronounce 98% of the names it has you should probably not speak at all.

Developer Response ,

The app has many names, some easy to pronounce, some more challenging. It does not strictly focus on hard to pronounce names for native English speakers. It has been especially useful to non-native English speakers looking for pronunciations for medium to hard to pronounce names and sorry it did not work out in your case.

Does not pronounce any foreign names. I can pronounce English names. Not even worth .99. Deleting app.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry you did not like it. As the description says, inogolo is devoted to English pronunciations (which many are challenging, especially for non-native English speakers). However the app does have a Languages category at the bottom of the category list that has names in Spanish, Chinese, French and German.
