Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 10.05.41 PM
Today’s free app choice is available in English, Catalan, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish! In fact, that’s why it has been chosen for this honor!

I honestly haven’t had much time to test it out, but because it is available in multiple languages, including French and Spanish, I’m downloading it for future use with my children and students!

Thank you, Touch Press!!!!! 🙂

Change iPad’s Language

This little tip may be well-known to many, but it was new to me. Plus, making this short tutorial gave me another chance to practice using an amazing app called “Explain Everything.” I will have to blog about that one at some point because it is just awesome!

Here’s the tutorial on how to change your iPad’s language settings:

You might be pleasantly surprised to find that this helps change some of your apps to your language of choice! You can also check by googling the app title with “iTunes” to view the languages available. See picture of this in this blog post. <—Look down to the second picture. If you find the language you want when you research, and you don’t see a way to change the language in the app itself, try changing the entire iPad’s language settings.

That’s all for now! Hope you have an appy day! 🙂

Today’s Multilingual Freebies

Just found a few multilingual apps on Apps Gone Free, so I thought I’d share!

Viking Rudi has a 4.5 star rating and is and educational entertainment app available in a whopping 25 languages!!! (See picture below for languages). It is available for free today only and normally costs 99 cents. Here is more information about this app!

I have downloaded the app and have yet to figure out how to change the language. I have tried the parents section of the app and changing the entire iPad to French. No luck so far, so I have contacted the company. Will update with the information when I figure it out!

Pepi Tree is an adorable educational game app available in 15 languages (see picture below). Pepi Tree is free today, but normally costs $1.99. I have downloaded this app and the kids love it! The only thing I’m not liking about it is that there is no language input. I am always disappointed when an opportunity in L2 passes us by. The kids, ages 5 and 4, adore the app, so a little bit of language would be awesome! Here is a YouTube video of a young child playing the app.

Also of interest could be Word Book and Puzzle Box: Kids Favorite Activity. Free today, normally $1.99. This one is available in English, Greek and Spanish.

We will see which of these apps above deserves a future blog post! If you have any input, please share! Thank you!
