Diné Bizaad App for iPhone®, iPad® & iPod touch® by Native Innovation, Inc.

(From the ILAT Listserv)

The Diné Bizaad App for iPhone®, iPad® & iPod touch® by Native Innovation, Inc. is here!! The Navajo Dictionary app properly named Diné Bizaad app has been published to the iTunes store this weekend. This language learning tool contains data that is loaded through a form of open source. This is done by a facilitation group of Diné language enthusiasts contributing from anywhere around the world. In fact, this goal of community based sharing helped develop the move from a desktop browser to a mobile app design. The concept of crowdsourcing common Diné words and phrases allows us to input the regional variations of pronunciations and vocabularies spoken by our Diné people.

The Diné Bizaad app has two parts, a Diné-English vocabulary and a English-Diné vocabulary. The English words and phrases are all associated to Diné words and phrases. The synonyms element and antonyms element are important principal parts in searching correct Diné word and phrase associations within the app. Access full article:
