10/12/18

The Forvo iPhone app from the Apple iStore is totally inadaquate.
Of the first 10 words entered only 2 gave good translations - hello, book.
2 gave partial translations chair -> president (did not give chaise), floor -> étage (did not give sol).
1 - fight - gave 21 phrases, only two of which had anything to do with fight.
5 were not found at all - escape patio bottle table pillow.
This is very sad because Forvo.com/pronounce/fr gives excellent results on a computer - I would give it a 4 on a computer for French pronunciations if word is entered in French- it isn't any better for French translations on the computer, so a 1 for Forvo, com translations. Doubly sad because the pronunciations are there, just not the translations.

A useful site, for what it offers, but it loads slowly.
