uTalk HD app



EuroTalk has an iPhone-iPod-iPad app called uTalk HD. If you go to the App Store and search for Papiamento, it will be the only search result. It costs $9.99 in the US.

In this app you will see Papi words/phrases (Curaçao orthography) and hear them pronounced quickly but clearly. If you tap the same word two times, you will hear it spoken by a man and then by a woman, or vice versa. There are some rudimentary matching games that test your knowledge of the items that have been presented.

The vocabulary presented is pretty small, 275 words/phrases according to the official description, and somewhat tourist-oriented, which might not be a bad thing.
