Right out of the gate and my initial impression? Awesome. I've used a lot of different apps and had connectivity issues and issues with the search engines. I've only used this one briefly but so far my experience has been awesome. I'm just now getting back into sign language after having been fluent when I was a kid. Having not signed for a lot of years my receptive language is poor. It comes back quickly but something like this is essential when you want to look something up fast and accurate.

It's okay. Some of the videos are very small and hard to see. Others are not. The real problem for me is that the signs are performed SO FAST that I have to keep replaying the videos to catch the nuances. Very frustrating. It would be so much better if the signer would perform the sign once, and then do it again in slow motion. And why do most of the signers look so angry all the time? Just sayin'... I won't go into the search glitch because it's been covered by so many others. Needs an update!

Pros: it's free. Cons: as others have said, videos are small and too fast most of the time. Multiple signs for same word with no explanation about different systems, hard to know which one to actually use. Also everyone is poker faced. Since facial expression is important in communication, makes it quite unhelpful. Deleted it in favour of paid app with slow motion replay option, better quality video, more useful search, ability to save lists, and where the model uses facial expressions.
