iPhone App for learning Swiss German

Hi guys,

After living in Switzerland for 3 years, I have decided to improve my Swiss-German besides my High-German. With the help of my Swiss friends, I have implemented an English/Swiss-German dictionary.

It's free!!
I hope that you will find it useful.

Why don't you try it, here is the link:

Looking for your feedbacks..
Thanks.

Re: iPhone App for learning Swiss German

Sounds really useful, thanks. I'll be sure to check it out.

I also made an App for helping integration into Switzerland. I had no idea about all the different Canton names and their flags, so made an App to help learn them. It didn't go down to well with the natives, but non-Swiss might find it useful;

Well, on an iPad I have to look at it with my head tilted 90°. Tilting the iPad only makes the app turn 90° on its side again. The only other annoyance is it doesn't translate (or do anything else from what I can figure).

(now I know why my head is now tilting..)
