    Grazie Mille! This app is fantastic for phonetical comprehension. Everyone needs this app if you want to meet the challenges of the language of Italy. La madrelingua italiana è più molto bello!
  • Free demo was helpful but full app still not complete enough for me.

    Found it. Tried it. Bought it. Gave up on it. Such a limited number of phrases. Was expecting a more complete dictionary.
  • To incomplete to be useful

    I keep trying to find things that aren't there, even in the pay version. Retired. Glass of water. Tap water. Etc. Not exotic stuff.
  • Excellent

    Easy to use, and let's you slow down the voice (optionally) so you can actually understand what it's saying. Highly recommend.
  • Bene!

    This app has no flaws. I love the flash card section and when it repeats the words, they are pronounced very clearly!

    OUTSTANDING in every way!!!!
  • Poor vocabulary

    While this app has the best interface of the 3 or 4 Italian phrasebooks I tried out, the number if words in its vocabulary is extremely limited. After paying for the app, I assumed I would have a robust Italian-English dictionary , but many common word were missing, making the app mostly useless for my trip to Italy
  • Perfecto!

    Beautiful and simple interface-- follows modern iOS 7 conventions and is efficient and intuitive. Voice on pronunciations is high quality. Good set of phrases and well organized. A perfect travel companion.
