Ratings and Reviews
A good Farsi app
There aren’t many apps for learning Persian (get it together duolingo!!!) so I’m glad this app exists and works pretty well.
New update ruined it
After not functioning at all for several months, now the app works just as before except there is no audio now. I have to say, I would never “buy” an app for $7 again. At least with a monthly subscription the developers have to maintain the app if they want to keep getting money. Instead, here I have paid my flat fee but the app is never working like it did when I paid the $7.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: The app has a lot of words for $7, and it's the best Farsi language app currently available for iPhone. However, it is super basic. The only learning mechanism is flashcards. Also, the app does NOT sync between devices even when you’re using Cloud. I corresponded with tech support for a couple of months and then they disappeared...I guess because the problem has no solution.
I think it would be awesome if the app had one or two games to make learning more fun and engaging.
Pretty easy to use and makes learning easier than some books I've used in the past.
