Anyone know of a good phone app for learning Latin? I have'nt been able to find a good one on my droid. I think it would be nice to learn a few new words whenever I have an extra few minutes.

Thanks!

Hello,
hereunder are some links I found in the net:

However, IMHO non of theme will help you learn even elementary vocabulary or phrases. Perhaps a dictionary of latin proverbs or quotations.
There are many great books available totally free ((awailable in many file formats), for example

I have found the selection of mobile Latin apps rather sparse. But, if you have internet access on a mobile device, perhaps these exercises would be useful for you: http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/latin/wheelock/index.htm
Nice site Decimvs. IMHO the exercises shown there may turn out too difficult for someone who never had any experience with latin.
As said before, I put little trust in efficiency of such sources in learning vocabulary or even simpliest phrases. The only reasonable soultion IMO is to acquire an e-studybook with audio companion adjusted in apropriate format best suited for adroid environment phone.
Rosetta Stone Ltd released mobile aplications of their original learning software, however as far as I know Mobile app of Rosetta Stone Latin has not yet been released.
Being a "very satisfied" owner of Rosetta Stone Latin course, I sincerely advise to be very careful in purchaising it even in Windows 7/Mac OS version (but this is just my subjective opinion)
Anyway, here is a link to their site with all their product range : http://www.rosettastone.co.uk/learn-latin
