MarleeSigns By MEDL Mobile iPhone Review

Everyone loves the beautiful and talented Marlee Matlin, so who better to begin learning Sign Language (ASL) from? MarleeSigns is a beginners app to learn to spell and memorize useful words in Sign Language. You'll be able to easily navigate through smooth, crystal clear video of Marlee showing you how to spell from A to Z, and learn to sign words and phrases like "thank you", "how are you", and "have a nice day"!
My favorite tool in MarleeSigns is the spell feature, which enables you to spell any word you want twelve letters or less. Just simply type a word into the search, and you'll see Marlee's hand sign your word back to you, with a karaoke letter by letter feature. Missed a sign? No problem, just swipe to see the previous letter signed. You can even switch hands in the picture if you're left handed, or hide your word and show a full screen sign. Okay maybe I lied, the true best feature of MarleeSigns is the fact it's free! So many iPhone apps are free these days, and I think it's pretty amazing to have the ability to learn a very important language, from the most famous deaf woman since Helen Keller for no charge. The last feature of Marlee Signs does involve money, but that is completely up to you if you so choose. There are currently five different lesson packs from Marlee, if you want to take your Sign Language skills to the next level for a $1.99 each. Overall, you really can't ask for more from a beautifully created app. If you're looking to learn Sign Language (ASL), there's no reason why you shouldn't give MarleeSigns a try.

We would love to hear if you downloaded the app and what you thought of it, leave us a comment below!
