Getting around in a country when you can't understand the primary language can be tough. Fortunately there are several options available to help wold travellers with the important stuff like giving directions to a cab driver or asking where the restroom is. Now we can add the Insight Guides Phrasebook app to that list.
Insight Guides have been one of a handful of go-to travel guides for many years. This new phrasebook wants to make travelling abroad easier by putting you a handy reference assistant/foreign dictionary at your fingertips. The app covers five languages - French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish - and provides a phrasebook along with a dictionary for each. Users may also mark favorites to make them easier to find in a pinch, quickly reference recent searches, and can do it all while offline (to avoid roaming charges).
You can download Insight Guides Phrasebook for free, with full phrasebooks available for each language via in-app purchase either individually for $4.99 apiece or as a bundle for $12.99
