I forgot to do a follow-up post for this app. This is the Learn Chamorro app by Troy Aguon. It’s a nice app if you’re looking to learn some Chamorro words. I don’t think I need to say too much on this as the reviews on the download pages pretty much say what’s good and bad about the app. I do hope Troy comes out with another app or an improved version of this one. We definitely need more Chamorro developers to create learning tools like this.
Here are the links to the iOS and Android versions:
In celebration of Mes Chamorro and to promote the Chamorro language, the Young Men’s League of Guam has just released a mobile app that provides a Chamorro word of the day to help users learn to speak the Chamorro language.
I just came across this site while searching for more Chamorro language apps. The site itself has some language lessons, but what caught my attention is their promotion of their language app that they say will be coming March 2015. Check them out at LearnChamoru.com.
Here’s another great dictionary app by a Chamorro developer. The app description page says you’re able to use the dictionary offline and search through the database.
Dangkolo na si Yu’us ma’ase’ to Siñot Aaron Matanane for providing us with another dictionary app option. It’s always great to know there are Chamorro developers out there looking to further the cause of preserving the Chamorro language.
Anyone who has undertaken learning Chamorro will understand when I say that we have a limited number of language resources and to have online blogs and even apps like this is really a big help to all. So kudos to Mr. Dela Cruz for creating this app.
