  • The closest thing to a "Sign-to-English" dictionary! Dec 6, 2014

    By SilverHairM
    This is my favorite sign lanuage app for many reasons, but the main reason I keep coming back to it, is it's one unique feature - it shows similar signs. Why is this so awesome? How many times have you seen a sign you don't know - but unlike a written language - there is no way to look the definition of a sign up! Instead, you have to keep bothering your poor friends to death for definitions all the time. lol So when I see a sign I don't know, now I can think of a sign that looks similar, look up that sign, and then drill down to the "similar" signs. Bam! I have found the definitions to so many signs this way! Just a bit ago, I was able to find the the sign for "appoint", by looking up a similar sign "find", which looks a bit like it. My recommendation to the Developers: Keep developing this part of your app, because there is nothing else out there like it! But it is still in the infancy faze. Mnay similarities still need to be added. For instance, under the sign for goal, you could put the similar sign "stars", and visa-versa. If you fully develop the similar sign feature, you will have created the closest thing to a Sign-to-English dictionary ever made possible.

  • Great Study Aid Apr 16, 2015

    By EasyasASL
    This app has been incredibly helpful for studying ASL. It may not have as many definitions as a few other apps, but I still use it the most because of its great features and interface. It provides similar definitions, you can slow down and/or loop videos, there are example sentences, grammar help, and more. By far my favorite feature is that in the options you can download all the videos (under 200mb) for offline use without an Wifi/cell connection. So you can study on a plane ride, while camping, or if you have an iPod touch and you're not near wifi.

  • Best ASL app! Nov 24, 2017

    By Sign language for life
    This is one of the best ASL apps I've ever purchased! I refer to this app more than any other ASL app I have on my phone or iPad. I've rely on this app to give me the accurate ASL sign for words I'm trying to learn. Also, it provides written English sentences translated in ASL with choices to see English, ASL or both at the same time. You can view videos at normal speed or slower. There's information on ASL grammar to you understand the proper word or when signing in ASL. This is the app for anyone who is serious about learning ASL! Love this app!!! 👍🏽👍🏽

  • Dictionary and Grammar tool Oct 15, 2015

    By ElizabethKW, CT
    This app functions as an dictionary: easy to look up words. But also a whole section to review grammar and syntax, and one that organizes by topic. These categories make it easy to review, for example, numbers or ages. For new vocabulary, individual words can be view at normal or in slow playback. Most have sample sentences as well. A welcome resource, especially for when I am away from my computer and my library of ASL references. Works well on both iPad and iPhone.

  • The best! Apr 7, 2020

    By RCRJr
    While noticing that the developers have not updated this app in a while, I hope they might notice that there are still users out there. I love this app and use it regularly. The features of using signs in examples, ability to slow down videos, and providing lists of “confuseables” with each sign is unparalleled in other sign language apps. I truly hope the developers will continue updating and sponsoring this great tool.

  • Videos play super fast now Feb 13, 2020

    By miaflea
    I’m not sure what happened but the videos play on a repeated super fast speed and I can’t get the sign. I don’t even know how this app updates and you can’t report bugs.

  • Improvements needed Mar 9, 2020

    By Shuggy_Test
    This app has the potential to be great and I would change my rating if some changes were made. The app sometimes accesses the wrong video for what you have selected. Normal speed and Slow speed are almost identical. Slow speed should slow down to like .5x the normal speed. Finally there are spots you get stuck in and the only way out is to close the app. Like if you look at the grammar section and select any link, you can’t go back afterwards, you have to close the app from the app switcher and try again.

  • Error Message Oct 14, 2016

    By J...M
    This app worked great until recently iOS updates. Now I get an error message when I try to view a video. Sometimes if I keep hitting retry it will finally work. Also, I can't find a place to inform the developers of this problem. Hope it is fixed soon.

  • Not good for learning with a child Mar 21, 2018

    By WeisbergFamDesktop
    Hardly any signs relevant to children. Hardly animals, things from world around you, “park”, “leaf”, etc. hard to remember now but only about 50% of words I look up or less are in here. And I’m just beginning asl with my child.

  • Dislike the repeating loop Jan 20, 2020

    By studentofasl
    I’d prefer video of the sign and the option to repeat it. The constant video loop is annoying.
