About this app

Military-related Moroccan phrases for language learners. With Moroccan text and audio.

This app was originally developed as an entry to the 2010 CIO/G6 "Apps for the Army" competition, and it is based on the modules publicly available online from the U.S. Defense Language Institute. While this app's subject matter relates mainly to military topics, the app is broadly useful with content relating to a range of topics.

• Dictionary lookup
• Pronunciation help: Transliteration/Romanization text
• Over 600 phrases
• Voice-based lookup (speak the phrase you want in English)
• Good for language learning, or as a reference

This app is part of a series of phrasebook apps published for many different languages and dialects. Phrasebooks in the series are available as "basic" and "medical" variants.

• Text may be exported as Anki flash cards
• Works offline: No network connection is required
• Search bar for quick vocabulary lookup
• No login or registration needed
• Dark background color minimizes eye strain

Many of the languages covered by this series of phrasebook apps are under-resourced, with translation apps and dictionaries not widely available from other sources.

I visited Morocco last month and downloaded this app for when my phone was offline, but while there, the app wouldn't work without internet - it was very frustrating. Also, it would be quicker if I didn't have to tap each word to get to the screen where I can see and hear the pronunciation. Other than that, the words seemed accurate, and I liked having both a written and audio pronunciation guide. I only rated this a 3 because it wouldn't work offline when the description plainly said it would.

Thank you for your review. In fact, the app does work offline. You can test this for yourself by turning off wifi and setting your phone to airplane mode, and then launching and using the app.

Ads, ads, ads! I used this app in 2016 to learn a few basics ahead of a trip to Fez and the locals were very impressed with my pronunciation. Just downloaded it to my new phone and uninstalled after a few minutes. There were a minimum of 2 ads between each word I looked at/ listened to. I'm sure there must be people who have the patience for that many interuptions while trying to learn, but I'm not one of them. Decent content ruined by excessive ads.

Updated Oct. 7, 2018 and can no longer put the app on the SD card. Don't want to fill up space on device storage so I am uninstalling it. Otherwise a good app.

I made a change intended to fix this issue in version 1.6.1.
