I gave AccelaStudy German a try, but I don't think it's worth the $9.99 price tag. They have a unique approach that works, but the content is very limited, and they are yet to provide additional content through any updates. However, they have updated it to work with iOS 4 multitasking & iPhone 4's retina display.
I wouldn't mind a Mac app, but Rosetta Stone is a little out of budget for me. I'm only learning German for personal use.It's a shame you're not looking for an app for the desktop - I would've said Rosetta Stone if you were.
Yeah, I had no idea how much it was. It just looked good from the ads and the reviews I read were pretty good as wellI wouldn't mind a Mac app, but Rosetta Stone is a little out of budget for me. I'm only learning German for personal use.
I'd prefer an iPhone app, but Mac apps work for me too! As long as they are affordable for someone who doesn't plan to become a German scholar
Hi goracheski, I'm not long back from my 2nd time to Germany and I was after the same thing. I did some research and found a series of iPhone apps that worked really well. The apps are called Earworms and they use a different technique with music to help you learn the language. I found them to be the best I've seen and it's pretty easy to pick it up. Just allow yourself a few weeks to run the app before you travel. Here the App Store link to the German App. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/rapid-german-volume-1/id396412556?mt=8 Hope it helps
