"Great!!! This is a fantastic and very practical application! This app is well worth it! 5 stars!"
"This app has proven to be very helpful for multiple children on my caseload who have difficulty using expanded descriptive language. 5 stars!"
This app has 3 parts:
1) Naming Practice: Pictured nouns with an evidence-based cueing hierarchy and optional self-scoring with the option to add your own photos and cues. The app records which cue was used to get the correct answer and produces a score report for email. Use different cues within Naming Practice to target confrontation naming, responsive naming, phrase completion, repetition, and oral reading.
2) Describe: Pictures with 4-6 semantic & 4 phonemic question prompts for semantic feature analysis, phonological components analysis, and expanding expression skills. You can add your own word and select from 20 prompts to go with them. Icons representing questions prompting for information about the appearance, category, function, shape, size, color, taste, location and more surround each picture. Target sound knowledge by hearing prompts for first and last sound, rhyming words, and syllables. Sample 5 images; get over 400 in the full version.
3) Flashcards: Clear, full-color nouns (700 nouns, verbs & adjectives included in full version); touch to hear the spoken word or see the printed word with the ability to add your own pictures.
In the full version, you will also get a Naming Test: a set presentation of 30 pictures with scoring and a report. This is a non-standardized test intended for screening a person's ability to name common items. It contains common and less common items of the categories contained in this app. A perfect screener!

This app is meant to serve as a reference similar to the pocket stroke assessment cards issued to physicians, nurses, and students in neurology and/or the emergency department. It does not provide the proper training necessary to accurately perform the assessment, nor is it meant to replace official documentation/procedures required by any given medical facility.

They appeared after rebuilding the app and cannot be removed (until this can be rewritten using a real programming language, which is probably never). To the best of my knowledge, though these permissions are requested, they are NOT actually used by this app. ***
Text is available in six languages: Spanish, English, French, German, Chinese and Arabic.
First version includes more than 100 sets of images and words divided into categories based
on criteria of Health Care by Functional Patterns. Each set will include an icon and a male and female voice.

Here is your mission. You will get on bus number 7 without attracting any attention from other passengers. At each stop, a new passenger will get on the bus, approach you, and speak one sentence to you. This sentence will be a code, so pay attention closely even to simple sentences like ‘This boat is huge'. Your mission is to assess whether this person is from South Africa, Russian or Sussex or not, based on the way they pronounce the sentence.
We will provide you with a report on your progress every 12th stop. Now get on the bus and don't forget we are watching you!
Spy Or Not is an Edu-tainment game by Phonetics Professor Dr. Laura Spinu and her students. Think you're a good judge of accents, try it out and see!
The game comes in Russian, Sussex English or South African accents.
The game was put on Android by iLanguage Lab, a Montreal Open Source software company.
The Anomia for me app is a sample app of what sort of Aphasia training apps can be created using an Android and the AndroidBAT's 'toolbox' for recording audio/video, taking pictures and playing audio/video (Cook, Marquis, Achim, Dessureault, Nguyen, Royle in Press). The application and publication are currently under review and are expected to come out in February 2013.
If you would like to be a 'Beta tester' and give us feedback on the app before it is published contact us, and we will give you a link to the Beta version.
This app will automatically become the Anomia for me app once it is published in February, you can uninstall it, or keep it until then.

The Batumi App Devs http://batumi.github.io are teaming up with open source field linguists from LingSync.org to build a speech recognizer for Kartuli speakers.
You can use this app to train your Android to recognize your speech. You will need to read a few sentences and then connect to WiFi to train your own voice model. We are hoping to have better recognition than 10% but given how different Kartuli is from other languages where speech recognition started (for example English) we don't know yet how useful this app will be. You are welcome to try it, it is mostly experimental and research software and as such we can't guarantee anything useful.

Georgian Together (ქართული ერთად) is part of a family of free open source LingSync.org apps. LingSync.org is a free tool for creating and maintaining a shared database for communities, linguists and language learners. LingSync's openendedness and confidentiality settings makes it easy for friends to create and share non-standard vocabularies. A lot of things can happen when you're in Georgia. Phrases like how to politely refuse refugee kids and other social phenomena that differ depending on your speaker population and village/town where you are staying can be a very important part of the language in use. In fact, there are many other contexts which won't be acknowledged or printed in any online grammar or second language materials, contexts which users can elect to hide from other users, or share with certain users depending on their comfort level.

What is LingSync?
LingSync is a free, open source project developed collectively by field linguists and software developers to make a modular, user-friendly app which can be used to collect, search and share your data.
Who can I use LingSync with?
LingSync is an Android app and a Chrome app, which means it works on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPad, and also offline.
Multiple collaborators can add to the same corpus, and you can encrypt any piece of data, keep it private within your corpus, or make it public to share with the community and other researchers.
How can LingSync save me time?
LingSync uses machine learning and computational linguistics to adapt to your existing organization of the data which you import and predict how to gloss it. LingSync already supports import and export of many common formats, including ELAN, Praat, Toolbox, FLEx, Filemaker Pro, LaTeX, xml, csv and more, but if you have another format you'd like to import or export, Contact Us.
