Hiking LuLu's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 9/3/19 1:48 PM

I purchased and loaded the app on my iPad last week. I had the ability to hear pronounciations at that time. Today I can no longer find the pronounce choice, only the translation. I deleted the app and reinstalled it to no avail.

App has virtually no words

Thinkology's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 9/3/19 1:48 PM

So I take the $3 plunge to help as I’m learning Swedish. Just to practice searching, I use the word, “Hello” and hit search: “Sorry, Forvo cannot find your word. Do you want to add it?” You’re kidding me, right? Sure, let’s add this FIRST WORD WE ALL LEARN in a foreign language. And the response: “Hello is already in Forvo in this language.” So where is the pronunciation? Is it a secret? It must be...along with tons of other words I’ve looked up. Yet, I can go to the website and get these words. Why charge for the app? It does less than the free website! This is a $3 ripoff and disappointment. Swedish is available in your list of languages in the app. At the bare minimum it should be supported for the most basic of terms; or you should make it clear BEFORE purchase what it can and can’t do...in this case, it can’t do anything in Swedish. Thanks for taking my money...it understood THAT language just fine. As it is, the IKEA catalog is more useful than this app.

良い。Good. Bene.

This is a really helpful app for me. There is a feature to play audios for all favourite words. So I can listen to all words. I hope I can make a favourite list of 1000 words. I use the app daily. Thank you so much for making such a great app :)

Very helpful

poked me good's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 7/24/18 12:49 AM

I bought this app because it claimed to be the largest pronunciation database. It may very well be but it doesn’t cover most languages- absolutely nothing here for me. It should say it is mainly for people who want to learn how to pronounce American English words. Being an American, this is of no use to me!

Website is more useful

Animex49's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 7/23/18 2:58 AM

I’ll admit I haven’t taken a long time to try to work with this, but it was very frustrating. I like it on the web, because I can look up all kinds of words, and languages other than the usual 4 or 5 Western European languages. But if you get outside of those languages, there’s almost nothing there. I was really disappointed. It wasn’t even worth the two or three dollars that I paid for it. It’s a waste of time for me.

Great for me!

江纳斯's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 7/20/18 7:10 PM

I speak Silesian German, a small dialect of German. And upon seeing that it wasn't on the site, I emailed them and they promptly added it! Now I can add pronunciations for these words really easily!

Doesn’t worth 1 cent
