Really really helpful!

I'm really enjoying this app so far. I'm learning a lot and I'm getting better at distinguishing the sounds. It's also kind of fun like a game which is helping encourage me to learn more.

I'm Disappointed

I thought I might give it a chance even though the devs are sexist and only give female voices free. I spent the money to buy the male voices and now even tho it shows as purchased in the upgrades screen and I click restore purchases it won't restore!

This app could be better too. The recording feature only lets you listen to yourself rather than working like Rosetta Stone, and analyzing your speech to help you out. Adding this feature would let me bump the rating one star.

If they would fix the broken restore purchases feature I'd bump it up another star.

If they would fix both of these things and add handwriting recognition (and teaching) of the characters I'd surely change my review altogether and rate it 5 stars.

Excellent reference

I constantly open this app to double check pinyin pronunciations, and I periodically go through the lessons to refresh. Great app!
