App Reviews

  • Excellent

    By Mutant-robot
    I love that this app has Deaf creators. There are a variety of lessons for conversational ASL on different subjects. The app is easily searchable and has different Deaf people presenting the ASL lessons that help students see a variety & nuance of ASL. Presenters are engaging & help students understand ASL is more than just what hands are doing. Phrases are translated to English captions as they are signed so that differences in grammar & sentence structure can be understood. They also have an excellent Instagram account for receptivity practice that goes beyond what is taught in the app. Excellent start for those beginning ASL or looking to brush up if you are out of practice. I found the $10 to be more than reasonable especially as more units get added.
  • Great leaping point

    By taggedbythuy
    One app alone, no matter how great, will never be able to teach all the complexities and nuances of a language and it's culture. But this is a great tool to add on my journey towards mastery. $10 is worth it seeing that I still haven't been able to get through learning all the videos yet after 4 months but I can always go back too look again. I also spent $10 on chipotle the other day so I figure a learning app is more useful and long lasting. Also need to point out, out of the multitudes of videos teaching hundreds of signs, the people who decided of focus on the single foul sign or the occasional "useful" fun signs need to take a chill pill.
  • Excellent App

    By full_absolution
    I’ve recently lost the use of my voice, and I’m trying to teach myself some basic ASL. The videos are wonderful, informative and educational. I’ve read a lot of reviews for this app, and the biggest complaint seems to be single use of profanity. The app teaches you the sign for “eff you” (which was surprising, I thought that was just The Finger, but I was wrong?), and some parents were upset about that. Personally, while I’d never use that sign, I’m still glad the app showed me what it means so I can recognize it. No speech-impaired people are going to cuss me out now, at least not without me knowing it! This is an educational app, so I’m glad this was in here.
  • Educational and fun

    By paepstein
    This app isn’t perfect, but I love how much the signers clearly enjoyed making it. They make learning the language so much more interesting and even a bit silly (in a totally good way). Just as importantly, I feel like I’m really retaining all the signs they teach. Like someone else said, it’d be great to be able to turn off the written translation so I could get used to practicing without the help, but ultimately I still think this is a fantastic learning tool and certainly one of the best ASL online/app resources I’ve seen. Also, I kinda want to be friends with Bobbie Jo, Matt, Nyle, and Kriston; they seem like very cool people in addition to being great teachers. And Nyle, you look beautiful too. I’d love to be your Valentine. 🙂
  • Great app!!! Just needs 1 thing.

    By Morionis
    I love this app, it's very informative, I'm learning sign language very quickly with it, I also love how it's laid out, it shows the Signs and the meaning of them in a great way. IT JUST NEEDS ONE THING. There needs to be an option to turn off the English words and just see them signing, so that way I could get practice with visually seeing the signs and putting it together in my head, rather than seeing the words along with the signs. And then after I see the signs then have a quick button that shows what the signs were to check if I were correct. I gave it 4 stars without that option, if that option was added I would happily rate 5 stars!
  • Just wanted to learn

    By This guy talking
    I picked this up about a month ago, and was surprised how easy it is to get in to. I have no speech issues, just figured I’d learn ASL. I practice for about 5 Days a week and have been slowly going through each section- currently up to Life of The Party. I enjoy being able to slow the videos so that I can mimic more precisely the gesture. Thank you guys so much for a great app! ***** A few suggestions, if you’re cool with that: -Saving your place when you check out the full roster of each section. It always throws me back up top and I have to scroll back down to my place. -Rearrangement of the sections. It might be personal preference, but learning colors and types of foods first would make more sense than partying and flirting. Haha -Flashcards! I would love to put what you’ve taught me to the test in an easier fashion than just looking at each section’s roster. -More words! I know there’s a lot here already, but I’m looking forward to even more! Maybe parts of the body, general medical terms, animals, etc. Thank you again, guys! Great work.
  • No explanation of facial expressions?

    By Nickname taken 123456789012334
    So in general I like this app. I have been looking for one to share with hearing friends so they can learn. It’s more clear than others and the signs are mostly the ones we see/use. But there are a couple things I feel need to be added. 1) facial expressions section to explain why and how to use them so that we don’t see SEE from what’s learned. 2)classifiers section and a full explanation of them 3) a disclaimer when you start the app letting gearing know up front that the English interpretation you read is not exactly the same. Words are added for their understanding and what they are seeing is not word for word translation. Other than that so for I like the app. Thanks!
  • Service industry and emergencies

    By PayHere
    I’m in the restaurant and bar industry, so I would like to see an expansion in your service industry related content. Dialogue for handling or relating issues would be great. More terms like: manager, raw, medium rare, well done, food allergies etc. And like: your card is declined, i can’t break a hundred dollar bill, he tried to hit me, you can’t do that here, smoking outside, can you call me a cab. And most importantly dialogue and terms for emergencies like: where does it hurt? pain, medication, heart, lungs, broken bones, epipen, is it hard to breath, and so on. Thanks for helping me be able to better help my guests and be a help to strangers in need.
  • Could use some improvements

    By Gaufrier150
    I will start with the good things about this app: The interface is very intuitive and clean. I like how professional it looks. It also has the “slow down” feature, which is great. I’ve learned a good amount from this app, which I really appreciate. But after about a month or two of learning, I feel like I’ve already outgrown it. I’m in the market for another ASL app with more words. Cons: I’m hoping to see more content in the future. For $10 for all packages, I feel like there just isn’t enough. (I’m also not partial to some of the packages that focus on silly things [there is a package about celebrities where half of the phrases are things like “Have my baby” and “let me see your abs”.]). There is a search feature, but it’s lacking. If the list is too long, it won’t always let you scroll all the way to see all of the options. Also, certain words are in their database differently (example: some phrases say “dont” and some “don’t”)
  • Quick Learning

    By Alexandria lee
    This app is fantastic! It’s so easy and quick to learn many phrases. Love the videos the videos and the expressions. I would recommend it to anyone and I ended up paying for the full app. I am so glad there’s a slow motion button for longer more difficult phrases. The only suggestion I would add is that I really want there to be a romance category. I think this would be fun to use with my boyfriend. Maybe it can be added in the next update? Thank you for helping me learn sign language! :)
