Nice App but problems with font size/error message It works well alongside the book. However, the Thai script is too small with no apparent way of adjusting it - magnifying glass required. Also, I get the following error message on a regular basis: Reason(RETRY) (Connectivity issue): 291 The only way I can get rid of this message is to reboot. Thanks for the update, it's working fine now - changed rating to reflect this from 2 to 5 Star. Best wishes

The book is probably the best and this is a great on-the-go refresher that helps you learn to listen as well as read

It doesn't teach you to read. Thai fonts are too small. 1. The Reading Exercises are assuming that you already know to read Thai, while the application doesn’t actually teach you to read. It shows a summary of the Thai Writing System but it is just a plain exposition of the consonants and vowels, not a progressive learning system like the one at the book. 2. The Thai letters are too small (specially for those who are learning how to recognize them). Please, implement the option to resize the fonts, or at least the possibility to zoom in.
