Caroline Moore will report on a survey of language learning apps that she carried out with Paul Sweeney, and the features that they liked and those they didn't. She will describe how she has applied this learning in two mobile app projects that she is currently 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. She 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.
