The ASL App

3.6

The ASL app is an interactive tool for people interested in learning sign language. This app provides you with a self-paced learning program to master the alphabet, numbers, and sign language expressions.

The app’s simple design makes it a perfect learning platform for users from all demographics. You can also share your learning progress with friends on social media.

With the ASL app’s paid version, learners can discover real-life expressions for conversations, including funny one-liners and emergency signs. ASL for iOS also offers Pride and LGBT lessons for everybody.

We understand the importance of this app to society. And to that effect, our QA specialist decided to test it for bugs.

According to statistics, there are more than 450 million people with hearing impairment worldwide. This is why an app for learning sign language is important. The ASL app’s main features work fine, but there are some issues that can turn users away from it. Let’s hope the developers fix these bugs as fast as possible.
