*Updated Review* Awesome app from developers who really care about their customers. Id give it six stars if I could ;-) *added 01/02/12* Is there any way to add a search function? For finding words/phrases again without having to scroll through them all? Still loving this app by the way!
The best :) I'm so happy that I found out Aaliyah brought out an app!!! I've been following her on youtube and although when I first bought this app it didn't work, I tried again recently and I haven't gotten off of it!! I have to say that this is the best app for learning Swedish i have found and I highly reccomend it to anyone who wants to learn Swedish properly!! I just wish there were more stars to give! Jag älskar du, Aaliyah!!
Goswedish The app is very good it's working perfectly i'm going to Sweden in June to visit a friend of mine that lives there. The only little thing is that if the app can slow down the voice so I can understand the pronunciation better. Or maybe add a regulator to the app slow to fast. Thanks a lot very helpful.
Very good for beginners This app has excellent graphics, very good quality sound, practical idioms and phrases, nice methodology, logical progression, is fun to use and is user friendly enough. I dislike that it seems aimed at younger learners and so the voices and images seem a little patronizing, but that's a minor point. I am happy to have this for an introduction to the language, but it should be emphasized it's a BEGINNER to ELEMENTARY level. To this end, its developers might consider creating an app for various levels or specific use vocabulary lessons - business, techincal, food and restaurant - and label them that way. But I don't want to give the wrong idea here. It's a fun, professional, easy to use and repeat system for introducing Swedish to anyone who is able to use English as a first or acquired language. It is designed and presented with English instructions and translations; so it's much less useful to anyone who doesn't have some control of English first. I can't see how anyone would be disappointed with this app as an introduction to the language.
Good app. Bad ui. It could do with a UI overhaul. Hey, maybe even to match the new material design standards. Either way, really good app.
Moar stars! This app is amazing :D Not only does it work well, but she has a cute voice which makes it pleasant ;3 I am trying to learn Swedish over time, and I love that I can view on phone or put on SD and take anywhere. Sound can go on/off, flashcards can flip from english to swedish first depending which way you learn better. You can go back or forward and even see the lesson cards ahead of time. I found GoSwedish on youtube and already am really starting to feel more confident using her system! :D
* By popular request - tap in the middle of the screen to repeat the audio!
* fixed occasional crash if advancing through cards too quickly
* better handling of device rotation (doesn't trigger audio)
