The MobiLearn Talking Phrasebook includes several hours’ worth of high-quality audio, and thus requires more storage memory than the average Android app—about 35 MB. For greatest efficiency and highest performance, installation on a high-capacity storage card is recommended. When you install the application, the core program will install itself in about a minute. The first time you launch the program, it will install all the remaining high-fidelity voice files. This may take as long as an hour or so, depending on your network speed. During installation, you may return to other tasks while the voice files are transferred in the background. Thereafter, the Phrasebook will launch and run without delay.
You may translate from any one of the Phrasebook’s languages to any other. Thus you may go from Spanish to German, Italian to French, or any other way in which you can pair the five languages.
