I used this app every day up until recently when videos stopped working. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but no luck. My phone is pretty new so I don't think it's my phone at fault. Seeing the reviews shows I'm not the only one having this issue. Will definitely bump my rating up when this is fixed but at the moment the pictures by them selves are not overly useful.

I love this app. The videos are really helpful. Is it possible to share the favourite pictures and videos to groups of people on platforms like messenger? We are starting to use some NZSL in our Playcentre and it would be great to be able to print out the words we are learning and to share the videos.

I'm really surprised at how lame this app is compared to apps for other non-NZ sign language. The pictures are ok but the videos are way to short... the sign should be repeated 2-3 times and done slow and clear! A quick 2 sec sign is so inadequate. And it needs more info to explain different signs for the same word, ie "flower" is there twice with 2 different signs. "Dirty" has 3 different signs. Without explanation (eg is it a noun or verb etc) it's pretty useless.
