If you’ve downloaded the latest version of the Lingopal apps, you’ll notice a few changes. Some of the changes have come directly from requests you have made. Others are things we’ve had in the pipeline for a while, and give a hint to the future of Lingopal. So let’s go through them.
This lets you do a few things. One is Adding New Categories. So if you have a specific need for a bunch of phrases which aren’t already in the app, then you can create a new category and put the phrases in there. Our premium apps let you add as many categories as you want.
You’ll notice a padlock to the right of the ‘+’. This represents a Parental Control feature many of you have been requesting. Input a PIN code of your choosing, and you’ll next notice that all of the categories have a checkbox to their right. By default, all the categories will show pre-selected, but if you don’t want to see any categories, then just uncheck them, and lock the padlock by re-entering the PIN. Now those categories are hidden from you, and only your PIN can unlock them.
You’ll find a ‘Manage Phrases’ button at the bottom of each category. It works in a very similar fashion to the Manage Categories feature, in that you can add new phrases and hide pre-existing ones.
One of the many reasons our customers like Lingopal is because they can use the app offline. That’s still the case, but adding a phrase now employs an automatic translation feature, and that requires internet access. However, once you’ve done it, it’s saved and you don’t need to keep on using internet access.
Make your own phrases, automatically translate and add recording
Send us your phrases!
Like all the other Lingopal phrases, you can send any new phrases that you’ve created to your friends via email, Facebook and Twitter. Now, you can also send them to us. We want to grow Lingopal with more phrases, categories and languages. And we figured that the best way of capturing the real way people speak is to do it via crowd-sourcing. Capturing content like this is the first step – we’ve got some pretty cool plans in the pipeline to enhance this and return the content to you. Keep watching!
