Taiwanese Audio Phrasebook for the iPhone

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

An enterprising programmer has developed an app for the iPhone to help English speakers with Taiwanese. The software, created by Gene Ko and called simply “Taiwanese“, includes a vocabulary training section and a self-test facility. It’s listed on my (British) iTunes at £3.99, but I don’t have exact prices in Taiwan or US dollars (£4 is just over NT$200 or about $6.60 American). Another thing I don’t have, unfortunately, is an iPhone, so I can’t offer a report on this application.  If anyone out there has tried it, please feel free to leave a comment.

The Year without a Post

Saturday, November 14th, 2009

Almost whole year has passed by since I last posted anything here… oops. I’ve been busy getting my business off the ground, writing unpublishable books and various other frippery. Anyhow, this inexcusable situation cannot be allowed to continue – new stuff coming up, including a redevelopment of the website itself and new content.

That is… if there’s anyone still reading.
