Koren Open Sourced

I’ve just open sourced Koren to github https://github.com/chatch/Koren

I plan to make some enhancements over the next couple of months. These are on the issues list at https://github.com/chatch/Koren/issues

They include adding the phrase data to the results, keeping a history of lookups that can be exported or reinvoked and allowing words not in the dictionary to be searched for online.



Pocket Hangeul Demo Video

I’ve just added a demo video of Pocket Hangeul to the Play listing and YouTube.

You can check it out below:

Pocket Hangeul – Learn the Hangeul!

Pocket Hangeul

Pocket Hangeul is now available. This tool will let you master the Hangeul and kick start your Korean studies.

A complete catalog of consonant and vowel sounds with native Korean pronunciation is included. Phonetic transcription in the Korean Ministry of Culture and Tourism standardised form appears below each letter. Phonetic details can be toggled on/off to help memorising. Additionally select between the typefaces Dotum and Batang.

Use the Memoriser feature to drill and learn by using one or all of the modes of speaking, writing, reading and listening. Select one or more sets of Jamo (Hangeul symbols) to drill at a time.

The Pairs feature will help you distinguish between similar sounding sounds like ㄱ,ㄲ,ㅋ.

Head over to Google Play and check it out. I will be posting a demo video in the next couple of days.

Send me any queries, feedback, problems and feature requests to foonugget@gmail.com
