Added push notifications - just to spur you on at key Irish Events (we won't annoy you lots - Promise)
Generally tidied up a few bits (housekeeping)
We will keep updating it - thanks for your support
App DescriptionJanuary 2013 - just updated for iPhone 5 and added an "All" section so you can see all the phrases in one place. Also added push notifications.
Visting Ireland? Or are you Irish and afraid of pronouncing Gaelic aloud or lost the cúpla focal? Do you find it difficult to memorize Irish words that you’ve never seen before? Did you ever want to show your Irish heritage, but find the Irish language difficult?
The Focal Me iPhone app is your secret on the go. Order a pint of Guinness in Irish, or throw a sly insult at your friends.
The Irish language is very different to English. The words your hear may sound very different, making them hard to remember.
99 funny, useful (and insulting!) words and phrases in the Irish language
Audio recordings for each of the phrases
Listen as many times as you like
Not sure what you want to say - then shake your iPhone for a random phrase
Impress your friends, or better yet, impress Irish people when you’re visiting Ireland.
The App includes controversial “Póg mo thóin” for those fond of a bit of the Irish humor. But if you don’t have some of the Irish humor, perhaps this app is not for you? In that case, you should not learn how to insult your friends in Gaelic. You should not learn smart old sayings to insult somebody. You should not learn to say the cheesy “Kiss me, I’m Irish”, in Ireland’s native tongue.
Go on, buy the App - it's cheaper than a packet of Tayto Crisps (Chips) and lasts much longer!
(Note: If you have any issues with the App - e.g. Audio or any other elements of the App - please do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org first before leaving any review comments - we can't reach you through your review comment, so won't be able to help there)
**If you can't hear the Audio, please make sure your Mute switch isn't on on your phone, or your volume turned all the way down. If that doesn't help - contact us - email@example.com and we'll get straight back to you.
