I thought this thing. ... ... would read aloud words that I would imputed in the text box. It only reads out the letters phonetic sound. And why does it have to say "ah" before every phonetic sounds?

PLZ fix the bug... It often crashes for no reason on all my devices: Nexus 7, Galaxy Note 5 and Nexus 9. Other than that, this app is incredibly useful. (Imagine you just get a word transcripted and it crashes... Frustrating)

Seems really good, to me. I can't find anything that does the job better. The key things I wanted in an app were an annotated chart of IPA symbols, specimen pronunciations, and a keyboard to type text which I can save for transfer to a Word document. I know there's at least one good and trustworthy keyboard app that includes IPA, but I prefer to keep my Samsung's preloaded keyboard. I don't much like the app's voice - and it gives too much voice to [t] - but that's my only complaint so far. More to come?
