S4BB Limited has released an all new app series dedicated to the upcoming Oktoberfest in Bavaria, Germany: Talk Oktoberfest Bavarian Phrasebooks. Available in 8 languages, each app contains spoken and written translations in fluent Bavarian. As you might expect from any good beer fest app, the phrases are dedicated to drinking, eating & flirting! Want to compliment that cute girl, but you don’t speak a word of Bavarian? Thanks to Talk Oktoberfest Bavarian Phrasebook you now can!
The app contains over 50 phrases divided in 6 categories. To play the sentence for the first time, you’ll need an internet connection. Once cached you’ll be able to play the sentence without connection. Playing the sentences in advance is also a good way of learning a bit of Bavarian yourself before going out. The user interface looks nice, is intuitive and smooth. Each category has an own icon, making recognition easy (might come in handy when you’re reading skills drop after some German sized beers.). The integrated search function makes finding the right sentence a piece of cake, or in this case, a sip of beer. Unfortunately I won’t make it to the real Oktoberfest this year, but if you do, this app is a great gadget. Besides the practical use, this app is a great conversation starter with the locals.
Talk Oktoberfest Bavarian Phrasebooks are available for BlackBerry® Smartphones running OS 6.0 and up & Tablets running OS 2.0 and up and cost $1.99 each at BlackBerry App World™. The following languages are available:
