Written iPhone App Review

Each of the categories also features several subcategories to make finding the phrase you need even easier. “Socialising” for example, is broken down into Greetings, Small Talk, At the Bar and Romance.
There are seven different languages in the talking phrasebook series: Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, German, Portuguese, and Greek. All of the spoken phrases have been recorded professionally, and are embedded in the app – so there’s no need for access to an internet connection.

Talking Phrasebooks require the 2.2 software update and are compatible with both the iPhone & iPod Touch.
