Great initiative but in-app purchase with glitches
I really enjoy the app and it has helped me with my pronunciation. However be aware that the in-app purchase is not properly working. You pay for the extra package with words and tests but it takes days to download it (if you’re lucky enough to have it downloaded). Very annoying.

Perfect developers with great products!
The only problem has been solved quickly! When I used the app say it from Oxford at noon, after I paid for American English word, I could not download. The app told me unable to reach server while there was nothing wrong with my internet connection. Then I sent an email to kind developers, just after several hours the problem was solved. Now I am going to enjoy it! The developers are really great because they do care customers! i'm greatly impressed by the efficiency with which them addressed this issue.
Great app, great support
The app functionality is very good and intuitive. The tests and sound wave graph helps you perfect the emphasis as well as pronunciation.
The app support is also very good, they solved my problem quickly and friendly.
Thanks for this useful app.
