Ratings and Reviews
Educational and fun
This app isn’t perfect, but I love how much the signers clearly enjoyed making it. They make learning the language so much more interesting and even a bit silly (in a totally good way). Just as importantly, I feel like I’m really retaining all the signs they teach. Like someone else said, it’d be great to be able to turn off the written translation so I could get used to practicing without the help, but ultimately I still think this is a fantastic learning tool and certainly one of the best ASL online/app resources I’ve seen.
Also, I kinda want to be friends with Bobbie Jo, Matt, Nyle, and Kriston; they seem like very cool people in addition to being great teachers. And Nyle, you look beautiful too. I’d love to be your Valentine. 🙂
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback on how the videos are displayed with written translations. We will look into this for future releases. And yes, our signers are fun! We like them too :)
No religion category but helpful when they rarely do have the sign you’re looking for.
I can’t really pull myself to understand why this app doesn’t take its time to have at least a religious category. Signs like “Jesus” and “God” are essential for a $10 in app purchase. The app tools it’s time to make an LGBTQ category because the ASL app wants to teach us that equality is only necessary when convenient to them. It is not that hard to expand the dictionary that you’re app has by adding signs like God, Buddha, Islam, Koran, Bible, gospel, and covenant. Things like that will be worth you’re wile. Overall this is a helpful app but not helpful when you might as well look up most things on google. I would like to have my learning in one place. Thank You the ASL app for taking my opinion into consideration!
Good signers, mediocre app
The signers do a good job. However, the app itself is dot very well organized and makes it hard to learn from.
I’m just starting to learn and there are lots of pieces here that would be useful, ABCs, for example. There are even different ways of viewing the ABCs - just the hand, the hand with the person’s shoulder (to see more of the arm movement for certain letters), or the hand and the face. The problem is that they go through the entire alphabet in one go, you can’t pick a single letter to practice. Furthermore, if you want to have it repeat a certain letter it repeats the entire scene, back to A again. And there’s no “pause” button. This makes learning very frustrating.
The topic based sections are also well signed, but again suffer from navigation problems - there’s no way of seeing a list of all phrases in a section, you have to page through each one at a time.
I do like the fact there’s a turtle / slow mode which affects all videos, but it isn’t clear that when you play a video and want to replay it that you must then click the turtle button, not the regular repeat button.
In short, the UI needs a lot of work to be usable, and I hope some day it will be. Until then, I’ll be looking for another app.
