    I was looking for useful phrases and I found two! Essential words like water couldn’t be found unless willing to pay $1.99 to upgrade.
  • Overpriced

    Almost everything I needed to know while traveling required additional purchases. For what is offered in the app, it should be free. Totally overpriced for what is available.
  • Don't buy!

    A potentially really good app but not enough content. In the food category there are maybe 20 vegetables if that many. How more content is add as the flags cards are a terrific tool.

    Pocket glow has done what my French classes at college were not able to do........that is for me to speak French as the French do. I congratulate you on the form and easy learning context you have developed and I also commend you on the voice of the young lady you chose to give the class. Merci beau coup !
  • Perfect for Traveling

    I played around with a few free learn French apps and this one was my favorite, so I bought the full version. Definitely a good investment to have more phrases to use while traveling. I like how for each phrase the app has the written words, how an English speaker should attempt to pronounce the phrase, the spoken audio, and the option to play it slower if need be. As a non-French speaker trying to learn important phrases before a trip to Paris this was perfect.

    Not only is this a phrasebook, but it has recordings of the phrases to help in pronunciation or to play when needed.
  • Painfully basic, overpriced, predatory IAPs

    The content it does have is *alright*. The issue is that it has very very little content. The vast majority of phrases you'd use in everyday conversations aren't in here, even with the in-app purchases. Seriously disappointed that I bought this. I should have read the five star reviews more closely - they're very obviously not legit reviews.
  • After buying I didn't expect to have to purchase add ons

    Phrase categories are rudimentary and if you want anything more sophisticated you are invited to purchase add ons. I'm used to the come on with free apps, not the ones I paid for. Also, I didn't get too far before I got a pop up box inviting me to register for a free phrase a day. When I tried to register I got a lot of programming script and a message that I would have to try again later. I did. Same problem. But the message wouldn't leave the screen unless I rejected the "offer," so I couldn't get past the first basic phrases unless I declined.
