Paid but still getting Ads. This is a pretty good app for learning the IPA but even though I'm running the full paid version, it still pops up ads. That's why I only gave it 3 stars. The other reason is that the settings are hard to find in the GUI and it doesn't scale well at all on tablets. The other large complaint is that you can't use it without an internet connection which makes it unusable on a plane, which is a place I would very much like to spend my time learning phonemes.

Great app for free and ads are unobtrusive. I may purchase the full version just to support the developers and to thank them. My only improvement suggestions would be to use simpler words for the English examples (for exam ple why not use bathtub instead of azidothymidine for the "th" sound) and to make sure all the sounds are available for download. Some of the phonemes, notably the funkier consonants will say my internet isn't working and they won't download, while everything else loads.

Thank you for your feedback, Cam! Your dictionary example made me laugh. I agree we should put more work into this feature. Currently the dictionary places just picks something at random from every known word in the dictionary. Perhaps we could pick a bunch of common words, and make loading a random word optional.

Very intuitive and useful app. However, there is just one thing I'd like to request, being that I would much appreciate it if you could add Dutch to the language selection. Furthermore, one slight error that I would like to point out is that all German words that start with an 's' is followed by a 'p' , 't' etc and should represent the s as 'ʃ' instead of 's'. This, and adding glottal stop symbols (ʔ) when required would make IPA transcriptions for German more accurate. Otherwise, great app!!!
