I am extremely happy to announce the Android App for ESL Aloud. This app is the most convenient way to bring the ESL Aloud experience to your Android smartphone so that you can practice your English anytime and anyplace.
Here are some of the features of the app.
Feature 1: A PDF of the sentences you practice in each episode is included as part of the app. You are able to view the text of the sentences while you play the podcast audio in the background.
Feature 2: The app allows you to pause and resume the podcast, so that if you are interrupted by a phone call, for example, you can pause the podcast, take your call, and resume the podcast when you are finished with the call.
Feature 3: Starting with Podcast #81, every episode in the app version will contain exclusive bonus practice material that goes beyond the content of the podcast itself. This material will be available only through the app.
Feature 4: Every new episode shows up instantaneously in the app, so you are sure to have the latest podcast at your fingertips at all times.
Feature 5: The app allows you to place a star on the episodes you want to revisit for further practice. This makes it easier for you to systematically review material in order to embed the sentence patterns more firmly in your memory.
Those are the features. The price of the app is ten dollars. You can use your smartphone to download the app directly from the Android Market. From your computer you can download the app by going to market.android.com and entering esl aloud in the search box.
I would like you to know also that a mobile app for the Apple iPhone is under development. I will keep you informed as to its availability.
The mobile app is an exciting new platform for the delivery of the ESL Aloud podcasts. I hope you are able to take advantage of it.
