1. Get the Focal

A dictionary for the mobile phone is now available from a company called Maithú. It is based on Ó Dónaill‘s dictionary, and has over 13,000 terms.

The dictionary is what is called an “app“, something that works with the latest generation of mobile phones. It is not necessary to be on-line to use this app, since the entire database resides on the phone itself, so the only cost is the cost of the app itself.

A new version is coming out soon which will apparently contain the pronunciation of the words, thanks to the technology behind abair.ie. And the possibility of translating full sentences is also being mentioned as a target.

At the moment, one can download a free version for the iPhone and the Android.

More information can be found at the Maithú site:
