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'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 someone way to compare certain sounds in minimal pairs in comparison to another accent would be helpful as well. Thanks!
Now I can talk like my sexy ass mans thanks bitches :)
Purchase not showing Start using the accents already loaded and your purchase will show. The way they have built the app is confusing but don't worry you haven't been ripped off! It's actually a really good app but to use it you have to click on the pre loaded accents first!
The app looks great but I've purchased new accents and they've not saved on the app. Very annoying. Where has my money gone if I don't get the product?
Purchase won't show I downloaded a Yorkshire accent for a show I was cast in and sure enough the app took my money but the purchase doesn't show up. I've restored purchaes, rebooted my phone and nothing. What a rip off. I want my money back.
