Caroline will report on a survey of language learning apps carried out with Paul Sweeney, and the features that we liked and those we didn’t. I will describe how I have applied this learning in two mobile app projects that I am working on. The first is an arcade style iPhone vocab game and the second is a highly ambitious project to adapt existing Adobe Flash-based course materials originally designed for CDROM for learners of English, French, Spanish and German. I will describe the challenges that had to be overcome, including decisions about what technologies and platforms to adopt, copyright and intellectual property issues, and how to make such projects sustainable and commercially viable.
