not as good as it used to be i miss the old website. trying to use it now just brings up this app. still a reasonable dictionary, tho limited in places. to search you seem to have to wait for one of letter of alphabet pages to load, rather than quicker search from e.g home page. can't seem to find a way to save any of the videos to send via other media, like used to be able to.
It would be great but for a few things. The back button exiting the app is beyond annoying. It almost renders the app useless. It's annoying that you can't just search, but have to go to the letter first. Then once you have found it you can't add it to a list from there, you have to go to the list and find it again. It's also very slow and laggy. A few obvious signs missing too, hopefully they will be added to. Apart from that it's a good idea and a useful resource.
Previous version better Used to find it a great app (4+ stars) for checking a sign and recommended it to my BSL class. New version a lot worse as find having to select a letter first annoying, seems to take longer to load video and - worst of all - back button exiting the app is very frustrating. I stopped using it after it changed. Thought would try it on my new phone but still as bad. Only keeping it as not much else available.
Really useful app! Wide selection of signs and the ability to create your own groups of signs is a great feature! The app is a little sluggish and the ability to search for signs without needing to input a start letter would be good but otherwise this app is great! I would recommend to anyone looking for an app to accompany learning bsl!
This app is amazing. It has loads of words on video and I found it really helpful to learn words in English. Unlike some other apps, this actually does everything that it says it does, including being English (not American) and having over 1000 words that you use every day if you are speaking. It also has words that you do not use every day like 'asthma', 'about to say' and 'magic'. This is helpful because, unlike other apps, conversation does go further than 'this, that, the other'.
Can't access the full alphabet list after H/I. Never used to have this problem but struggling now.
