    Excellent program. Like the word of the day on home screen. As a beginner, I'd prefer a word of the hour to help me. Probably not a formidable task to undertake. Please consider.

    Life Saver. I used it daily in offline mode while traveling in Central America. 5 stars😊

    Farci would be nice, and definitely should have come before fictitious languages like Klingon. Is there a way to employ machine learning to crowd source the content, so we don't have to wait for languages to be on-boarded? The premise of this app is world changing for sure!
