Pretty Good

The app is overall very good, I like how it has many language options, and I like how you can translate the word or phrase. The problem that I have is that certain languages have very little or no books at all. Like Korean for example, I also hate that we have to pay to hear the pronunciation of a word! Also why does it say the “quota is exhausted?” This is very frustrating, I don’t know why I need to pay to learn! If you guys improve these things no doubt it will become popular and people will download and use it more often.

The app that you keep coming back to is the best app to learn from. I had already bought "tons" of apps, but does it all effectively for a basement price. Reading, understanding, listening, then speaking, yields progress. Add words to your vocabulary bank as you read and enjoy the story. It's addictive and it works. 😌

Now works but still need improvement

I’ve upgraded to professional to have full functionality. It did not work the first time due to iOS upgrade but the developer recently updated it.

You can load the books and launch a passage for translation. Unfortunately you can click only on one word per word which slows the reading down. It would be nice to easily click on sentences or passage because the meaning is clear with the whole sentence.

Also, the speech button doesn’t work.

Developer Response ,

This was bug due to new iOS version. We already fix this error in recent updates.
