Vocabla: Build Up Your Vocabulary For Spanish, Polish & Advanced English - 1 views

  •  
    This is a simple tool that will assist with learning English (to Advanced English), Spanish, and Polish vocabulary. More languages may follow. It can be used online or with a free Android app. It is similar to a lot of other language learning applications. You can create lists of words and phrases that you want to learn or you can select a list that was made by someone else and shared to the Vocabla library. You can study each list as a type of flashcard and when you are ready you can take a practice quiz. Teachers might like using Vocabla to create a list of words and share with their class. All the students could use the list to study on their own

Teen app maker hits the jackpot - 7 views

  • "I basically begged my parents for six months to get [an Apple] computer," he said of his father, an investment banker, and his mother, a lawyer. "And when I finally got it, instead of using it for just watching videos or browsing the web, I kind of had an interest to create things."

  • "I began kind of looking into algorithmic technologies and natural language programming," Nick said. The technology is now integrated into his latest app, formally known as Trimit and now known as Summly.

    He is 16, an Australian living in London and recently scored $US250,000 in investment from a billionaire for a technology that could change the way we read emails, news articles or any other text on our computers.

Field Guide to Victorian Fauna for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store - 0 views

  •  
    "The animals found in the south eastern Australian State of Victoria are unique and diverse. Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution, and endangered species status combine with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments. The content has been developed by scientists at Museum Victoria, Australia's largest public museum organisation.

    The app holds descriptions of over 700 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, freshwater, terrestrial and marine invertebrates, spiders, and insects including butterflies. From animals found in rockpools, minibeasts in your garden, to wildlife you might see in the bush. We've put in a lot of species, but it's still a fraction of the complete fauna of Victoria. Our scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time."
