Abandoned, but works: First page is all you need
With a few exceptions (last update was two years ago for goodness' sake) it just works: you tap the syllable to hear it. And it's grouped with similar romanized spellings (read; confusingly similar for a noob like me) which makes it easy to compare. The top right corner has a selector for each the 4 tonals, too, so it's really 8 sets of syllables (4 tonals X 2 vocals).
As someone who literally just started learning today, I find it hard to overstate my satisfaction with this. Simple and easy access to pronunciation for the Chinese syllables in male and female vocals alone is worth the 5 stars, so I'm giving this review without even checking the other features.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
