EDIT: I misworded some things, so I updated it to reflect that. Hopefully you get what I'm meaning. I also meant to give 4 stars instead of 3. It's a lovely app, but there aren't enough accents. There are also a lot of people whose accents aren't truly reflective of that region. Many of the accents are heavily influenced by their parents accents, which isn't good when you're trying to make your accent sound as natural to that region as possible. Like I said, a great app, but it needs more accents. Especially from the South.
I actually really liked this app but I switched phones and there's no way to keep the accents I bought. It's super annoying, you should be able to transfer purchases. For that reason I'm giving this one star, even though the app is decent. They should also offer like a value pack of accents or something. The accents can get expensive after a while.
It's a great app , fast and easy to use too... I think you could make it amazing by adding more in depth features ..maybe after each speakers sentance there could be a commentary on what the speaker is doing with the phonetics of words ? Probably way off this development but there's language software called the Rosetta stone than records your voice phonetics and matches them to them then tell me you if you have Are close to the prenunciation ...maybe worth copying?
I've been using this to help me prepare for a podcast. It has everything I needed in a pinch! I love the range of resources they provide in each kit. I've found it it to be very useful. I wish that there would be a bit more visual elements and use of IPA. Perhaps some way to compare certain sounds in minimal pairs in comparison to another accent would be helpful as well. Thanks!
