iPhone App Review: Twist Your Tongue – English Tongue Twisters

iPhone App Review: Twist Your Tongue – English Tongue Twisters

May 19th, 2012 by

Tongue twisters are fun for young and old alike, and the new Twist Your Tongue app by developer Sound Apps Berlin features over 50 tongue twisters that you can try to wrap your tongue and your mind around. Listen to dozens of tongue twisters read aloud either slow or fast, time yourself as you record your own version, and even create your own tongue twisters to share with friends through email, Facebook, or Twitter.

How It Works

The app starts off with the long list of included tongue twisters. Options at the top of the screen include a “random” mode that jogs you through the list randomly (what else?), or you can create your own. Tapping on a tongue twister take you to the twister’s page where you can play the recorded reading, and dragging down the drag handle shows you the text. You can listen to the recorded versions in either slow or fast mode, and you can also record yourself reading the tongue twisters, complete with a stopwatch timer.

When creating your own you first type in the title and text, then on the next screen record yourself reading it. If you’re not satisfied you can record it over as many times as you like, and then save it to be included in the app with the rest of the included tongue twisters. Tapping on the arrow on your own tongue twister gives you the option to share it over email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Pros And Cons

Twist Your Tongue is organized well, with the included content organized alphabetically. You can find the old familiar chestnuts in there, but the real way to discover new twisters is to browse them randomly. The recorded performances are spoken clearly and distinctly, and the “fast” versions are done so well I”m not entirely sure whether they’re actually being spoken that quickly or if they were sped up from the slower version.

Overall

Twist Your Tongue is a fun app full of tons of tongue twisters, most of which you’ve probably never heard before. Not only does it come fully stocked but it has a great feature for creating and sharing your own. It’s available for $1.99 and has multiple versions for English, Spanish, German, and French (other language versions sold as a separate purchase and App Store download).

    oh and we dropped the price to 99 cents… ūüôā 1.99 is too much…¬†

    hi there… ! nice review… fyi…. the fast ones ARE genuine… it may have taken some of us 20 times to get it right… true…. but they’re not sped up… in fact you can kind of tell, because the slow ones are more “acted out”… the fast ones straight and flat…. Cheers, Steve (Taylor of soundappsberlin).¬†
