App DescriptionPocket Norwegian is a phrasebook developed by and for fans of the Norwegian language. This app includes many traditional and modern words, phrases and sayings for day to day use.
It's an ideal tool for travelers or emigrants in Norway.
The text was drafted by Elisabeth van der Meulen, a Norwegian who lived in the Netherlands for years, offering Norwegian courses under the name: Norwegian for all. (Noors voor iedereen)
Developer Touchinski was one of her students and so arose the idea of a handy Norwegian language app.
Pocket Norwegian distinguishes itself by a relaxed look and feel, modern and useful vocabulary and a very handy swipe-to-mark-as-favorite feature for quick retrieval for when it comes down to it.
You can alternate the source language between English and Dutch. The dutch origin of Pocket Norwegian is the basis of this option and also explains the wooden shoe.
Pronunciation is provided by a Text to Speech web service. To keep your roaming costs to a minimum, you can optionally choose a textual representation of the pronunciation.
