Pros and cons of Learn Thai™ app for iPhone and iPad

Learn Thai™ app good for

My wife is Thai and after trying several "methods" of learning to speak and read Thai I have finally found the perfect app. She really enjoys me sharing my word/words of the day.
The app has a great design. Simple and easy to use. Will recommend to friends.
A good deal of Apps for learning Thai on AppStore not so many very good! This one, one of the most complete, a great deal of words in many fields, sounds and images of good quality, a real pleasure.
This app is very helpful for learning Thai vocabulary. It isnt like those apps that only teach "survival phrases," but it actually helps you learn using pictures and word games. I also like how it helps pronounce each word. The only thing that bothers me is that the full version is $4.

Some bad moments

I wont recommend you buying this app until they fix the sound
This app is nice and fun, but its full of errors. Not good when you learn a new language!
Great app for learning phrases in Thai, great games. What is need is a universal search button to look up any word you may need in a second. The app is a little buggy, but that does not effect in a bad way. If their is a in app purchase to upgrade the app I can not find it in the app. Also a tab for useful verbs should be added and the male/ female speech difference in the Thai language.
I used this app to brush up on my Thai. If you dont use it you lose it. This app allows me to remember both common words and others I dont use often and tend to forget. Thank you! Kob koon krup.ขอบคุณ
But a little limited and sometimes hard to hear. Potentially a good vocabulary builder.
This app makes learning a language fun. Its like a game. I like that you can choose to study just the written word, just listening, or both. I downloaded the app with the intention of learning to read a few words, and now I can listen to the words for colors, buildings, and food and know what is being said! Great app.
