iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
TripLingo is an app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The point of TripLingo is to help you overcome the language barrier whenever you are traveling abroad or if you are around someone who doesn’t speak your language.
The app comes packed with a ton of features and an amazing user interface that makes it one of the best language apps you can get. We would highly recommend checking out TripLingo if you are heading to a foreign country, as it is one of the best applications to use.
The features of this app are very functional. First, the app comes with over 1200 phrases per language, including slang. This is important because word for word translation is tedious and will usually be grammatically incorrect.
With TripLingo, entire phrases are available to you and can be spoken right from the app. Another feature is voice to voice translation. This basically translates your voice into another foreign language. This is especially useful if you are listening to someone speak and need to translate what they are saying.
There are also 10,000 words via an offline dictionary built into the app, access to a live translator, flashcards, and even 2000 audio files to help you understand the language. Plus the developers are always adding new features to help improve the app’s experience. So all of these features combine to create an app that is really worth downloading.
One of the best things about the app is that it is free, with basic phrases in 11 different languages and an additional 11 languages available for voice to voice translation. Note the app does offer a variety of In-App Purchases that provide 1200+ phrases per language.
The design of the app is very unique and classy. The design fits perfectly with Apple’s upcoming iOS 7 update, so the app experience will feel the same the second you update the iOS 7. It’s very easy to navigate the app and access all the different tools and features within the app too.
The interface is clean and crisp, provides excellent ease of use, and you can tell the designers put a lot of time and hard work into the design. They realized that most travelers really don’t need to be fluent in a language, they simply need to be able to communicate easily while in certain, mostly predictable, situations. This app provides that and more.
Overall we would highly recommend downloading TripLingo because of it’s solid list of features and elegant design. We’re a bit disappointed with the cost of some of the IAPs but the developers update the app often and the app should be an effective tool to help you communicate with a foreigner. In total, TripLingo is a very impressive app.
TripLingo is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
