This a wonderful App. though it needs a bit of tweaking, tinkering and streamlining from the Publisher's end. Would love it more if it had allowed the users to record their pronunciations and play them back to check if they come close to the App's pronunciation of a word; just to ensure that they are pronouncing the words right. And to get an idea of as to how they sound. Further, if a couple of sentences could be added to practice intonation and all that it would have been marvelous. But Five

Great app that gives the IPA for both British and American English. Also provides recordings. Negative reviews probably come from people who have no idea what a pronunciation dictionary is and how useful it is for (even advanced) non native speakers.

The app is very basic. There is no synchronization between the devices so what you add to favourites on one phone will not synch to other device. That's really terrible.
