Hi all, first post alert. I’m an irish iPhone app developer and (bit spammy, sorry) but I’d like to tell you about a new iPhone irish phrasebook app that I’ve recently built and released. It’s called “[url=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/focal-me-irish-gaelic-words/id509281958?mt=8]Focal Me[/url]” and it contains ninety-nine irish phrases with audio playback and pronunciation guides, from banal stuff like “Sin sin, níl aon scéal eile agam” to the more outlandish “Go n-ithe an cat thú is go n-ithe an diabhal an cat”.
I found your [url=http://www.daltai.com/discus/messages/13510/55170.html?1300111864]previous forum thread[/url] on apps, but I can’t find one on the new board so I’ve decided to start a new thread to get your opinions on apps and digital resources generally. I’m wondering if any of you use any other mobile apps (iPhone or Android or other) or other digital resources on a regular basis for learning Irish? Besides the obvious like Google Translate.
I use them ALL the time. I use Collins Dictionary on my phone. The only drawback is that it is only English to Irish. I use Potafocal ALL the time everyday when I’m working on my computer. If it were on my phone it would be wonderful as well.
Go raibh mile maith agat a Aislingeach. Ní raibh a fhios agam faoi. Dóchreidte!!! I’ve been using it for months and never figured that out. You are too smart or I am too dumb to keep hacking away at this Irish. (or both!) Thanks so so much! Féabar Sometimes I just blame it on my age. I never dreamed I’d have a phone that was a: map, (we didn’t know what a GPS was), a camera, a dictionary, a flashlight, a movie camera, ad nauseum. I love the new technology.
