Innovative Language Learning in the Bangkok Post - Thai WordPower and WordPower Lite

Today Graham K. Rodgers, of the Bangkok Post, covered various Thai language and lifestyle i-phone applications in an article titled iPhone apps for Thailand: a mixed bag.

In the section titled Database, Graham covers Innovative Language Learning’s Thai language i-phone applications (Thai WordPower Lite and WordPower (Full) versions):

“Word Power Lite is designed for someone trying to learn or improve their Thai skills. A daily word is downloaded automatically. The device displays Thai characters, phonetic characters and a translation. When the Listen button is pressed, a female voice reads out the word (or phrase).

…Each daily word can be added to a word bank. This also allows use of flash-cards to assist learning. There is an extensive information page that explains the philosophy behind the app and the learning method. The Lite version was $0.99 (35 baht) and users may upgrade to a full version at $9.99 (355 baht). This contains a bank of 2,000 words sorted into categories: enough for a fair level of communication. Word Power is by Innovative Language Learning who have well over 200 apps listed at”

Thank you to Graham and the Bangkok Post.

    First of all, well written article! I’ve got a little question bothering me, I really enjoy the layout of your blog and tried to install the same layout on my Worpdress blog. Yet, there is some kind of weird php error in the footer. Do you have any tips, what version are you using? Please PM me on Twitter @ThaiStuz or via e-mail.

    First of all I’d like to say, great post! I’ve got a little question bothering me, I really enjoy the design of your website and tried to download the same layout on my WP blog. Anyhow, there is some kind of strange php error in the sidebar. Do you have any hints, which settings are you using? Please PM me on Twitter @PattayaGuru or per e-mail.

    An erroneous order was placed in the amount of $216.00 us. When my grandson clicked the button the wrong order came up. Regardless of what he did this order could not be removed, cancelled or reversed. Please have your Long Beach connections reverse these charges to my card so that I may go on to place the order that I need as soon as possible.
    Thank You

    QA department?

    I get an upgrade that wipes out my wordbank and then I have to email you my old database to see _if_ you can recover all the words that I had to wait a day each to receive?

    You ask that people contact you but there isn’t a response section available on the contact us part of the website. Again, requiring email. No spam for me, thank you.

    Now, I get a notification that there is a new word but when I look, there are no new words.

    It was ‘working’ fine before someone fixed it.
