What's the NATO Alphabet?

As the most widely used radiotelephone spelling alphabet, the NATO Phonetic Alphabet is also commonly known as the NATO Spelling Alphabet, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Phonetic/Spelling Alphabet or International Radiotelephony Spelling Alphabet. It was created for those who exchange voice messages by radio or telephone to understand the 26 letters of the English alphabet and numbers more easily, regardless of language differences or the quality of the connection.
--------------------------------------------------------------

What does the app do?

Different from most apps in the App Store or Google Play store, this app focuses on practice and trains your knowledge of the names of the 26 letters. What’s more, you can choose to train the names by typing or voice, and I strongly recommend the latter as it’s much more useful in real life. Besides the aforementioned rather unique feature, the app also helps to explore and learn the names of the 26 letters, numbers and so on and translate words, phrases and your license plate number.
--------------------------------------------------------------

How to explore and learn?

On the Explore page, you can see the 26 letters of the English alphabet (as well as number 0 - 9, decimal, hundred and thousand), their word representations and their pronunciation, and you can click them to hear their official pronunciation. Try to remember the word representations of the letters and their pronunciation (3 as a group) and train your knowledge on the Train page.
--------------------------------------------------------------

How to train?

On the Train page, the 26 letters are grouped into 9 levels and in between there are several challenges. In a level, you have unlimited tries and time to test your knowledge while in a challenge, you must answer within a short period of time and make less than 3 mistakes to pass it. In both the levels and challenges, you can answer either by typing or by speaking. I strongly recommend the latter as it is how the alphabet is commonly used in reality.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Translate and save as favorite.

On the Translate page, you can translate any words/phrases into the NATO Alphabet and play them in audio format. You can also save them (by clicking the star icon) as your favorite. For example, you can bookmark your license plate number for easy access later.
--------------------------------------------------------------

What settings can I change?

Under Settings on the More page, you can enable/disable the interface sound and switch on/off vibration on error.

Have fun learning and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me by email (nato@dong.digital).

The training part is the reason for downloading it. They should be honest and just say it costs 1.00 otherwise it doesn't do what you expect. Other apps out there do whats expected and do a good job. The low rating is because they are not honest and this does cost money to use as a quiz! Who cant find the alphabet anywhere and just memorize it. His justification that it is free to use it in this manner is disingenuous.

Hi Mark, the learning content is completely free while the training part (the “gaming" part) costs 1$. The thing is I’m a private developer and the in-app purchases are my main source of income. Also, I’m charging a small fee to compensate the costs on my side such as domain, Firebase, ADP and the most costly, advertising. I hope you understand.

Is very helpful for learning the phonetic alphabet, I would rather have ads than have to purchase the premium version, banner ads maybe but please no interrupting ads? Its only $1 but slightly inconvenient for me. Very helpful for learning though.

For me this app was excellent. I've been trying to learn the NATO phonetic alphabet for a while. This program allows you to respond using either Text OR by Spoken Words. It also allows you to type a sentence which the program translates and if clicked will speak your sentence in NATO code.
