It's very easy to use it; it's also modern and smart. The main goal is to improve the user experience, about mobile-android side.
Mozilla* thinks and app is useless because of there is the website, which is responsive and mobile-friendly. In my opinion, a native android app can just improve the project. It's an additional tool for users and contributors. In addition, the website is too full of graphic effects and animations that distract you. The website is slow and there are many bugs to fix.
I started the project development confidently, although I knew it would have been difficult (also because doesn't exist official documentation). I've done Reverse engineering, using many tools - using Network of Firefox DevTools.
Also this, such as the most of my projects, is open-source, free and available, of course, on Github.
From there you can download the source, contribute to development, report a bug, make a suggestion or idea, ask questions, ect.
You can translate the project in your language on Crowdin.
At the moment, the project is translated in Italian, French, Basque, Interlingua, Swedish and English (of course!)
You can download the app on Google Play Store, Aptoide, Github and (soon) F-droid.
Some features of the app:
- See Statistics and Voices online just with a tap
- Validate clips
- Log-in to own Common Voice account, so you can see progress easily
- Badges** and Levels** to demonstrate you're the best
- Customise the app experience: choose your language, your theme (light/dark) and other
- Auto-play when clip is loaded in the Listen section
If you have something in your mind, maybe questions, please open an issue on Github; you can contact me also on Telegram (@Sav22999).
