Great app to practice pronunciations as I (try to) learn Portuguese on Duolingo. Worth the price for me, and decently functional. Occasionally some phrases don't work in the app. For example, fica onde estás doesn't even show up on the app (it does on the website, but it's a little buggy there too for some reason); por favor (no exclamation mark) is completely broken in the app but does show up, that works fine on the website. Also, accents are ignored (eg: bebês and bebes are together, oddly)

Frustrating. Can't log in without setting a location. This feels intrusive. When I relented and switched on location in order to log in, the location was selected as an unknown neighbour's house and postcode. This is unacceptable! I want to use the the app, and have paid to do so. I am not happy, and would welcome help as to how I can do so without setting a location, or using someone else's house number and postcode! really disappointing, as i want to listen to first language welsh speakers.

Great concept, very useful. Poor app, many issues such as constantly being logged out, network issues, unable to use features entirely for no reason e.g. being told to try again later when creating an account, nothing happening when searching for words. The actual pronunciations and purpose of the app is great an invaluable tool. Just really poor app design.
