Study Whatty: Spanish to English (Picture 6)

Description:
     Are you trying to learn Spanish?  If so, you know that learning a foreign language  can be tough thing to do.  Luckily, learning Spanish is mostly memorization.  English and Spanish are very close in structure that the main issue is learning the words.  So what do schools do?  They teach you to repeat the words over and over and over until you memorize them.  This app takes a majority of the most common words and phrases and let's you do just that.  These are specially designed flash cards to speed up your rate of learning.  They are broken off into groups to make it a lot easier.  Take this app with you anywhere on a laptop or cell phone.  If you have a few minutes to spare (on the train, on a bus, at a doctor's office or during a television commercial break), then practice off a few phrases.  Use your wasted time to learn the basics of Spanish.  In a short time, you too can have it down.


     Version 1.00 has the following sections.  More will be added in future updates:

      BASIC:  Adjectives -oa -a -os -as, Adjective Unisex, Adverbs, Adverbs Multi-Word, Adverbs + de, Alphabet, Pronouns, Pronunciation & Questions.

      MISC.:  Colors, Communication, Days of the Week, Expressions, False Spanglish, Greetings, Household Things, Key Words, Months of the Year & Seasons, Precious Stones, Spanglish & Special Occasions.

      VERBS:  Action Verbs, Non-Action Verbs, -ar, -ar Irregular, -arse, -arse Irregular, -er, -er Irregular, -erse, -ir, -ir Irregular, & -irse.


 

     - There are 2 main pronunciations of some Spanish words:  'Spain Spanish' and 'Latin-American Spanish'.  The difference happens when there are two vowels together such as, "Puerto".  In Spain, each vowel is pronounced seperately like "Pu" and then "er"  However, in Latin-America they add a "W" before the vowels and then sler the two vowels together forming a singular vowel like "Pwer".  Version 1.00 has the 'Spain Spanish' version.  Usually, if you take Spanish in a school, they will teach the true 'Spain Spanish' version.  It's easier to learn.  In a future update we may add both versions.

 

     - This app is part of the "Study Whatty" series.  By using it's engine there is the possibility of adding other games like trivia, word games, match games and more.  You can look at the "Study Whatty: Poker Drills" app we did for some of the other games that the engine supports.  The price is reduced now as it's just flash cards, but if there other games do get added, then the price will go up.  By getting the app now, you are entitled to future updates.

BLOG OF UPDATES

      - 11/16/2019 - "Study Whatty:  Spanish to English - FLASH CARDS" version 1.10 was uploaded to the Google Play Store (Android) and Microsoft Store (UWP Windows 10).  This fixed a bug where you could "see through" the background messing up the game.  It is now fixed.    

 

      - 11/04/2019 - So right on cue, Microsoft rejected the app just before 9AM on Monday.  After looking at the report, I found that the name for some app icons were shown as "Poker Drills".  I guess this is leftover from the Study Whatty template that I used.  I just forgot to change it (There are a lot of settings.  I mean a crapload of settings.).  So after changing it, I resubmitted the app.  The Microsoft Store is a pain in the butt to get something published, but they find most everything.  They actually go through the apps and do a lot of checking to find those little things.  That is a good thing. 

      BTW:  If you look at the below screenshot, you will see many numbers like 100, 125, 140....  These are the different icons that have to created in PhotoShop at different screen resolutions.  When you add them up from all of the different platforms, they number around 100.  That's a lot of extra work that the user never even thinks about.

 

The app was rejected because I had the wrong "Short name".

Rejection

 

 

      - 11/03/2019 - The Google Play Store accepted the rating and it is now live.  This only took 3-4 hours to reverse (I'm not sure how to calculate this as daylight savings just fell back 1 hour right before I was notified of it going live).  So no biggie.  Now we are awaiting on the Microsoft Store to do the same thing (although they seem to not to do these things on the weekend.  Probably Monday).

 

      - 11/02/2019 - "Study Whatty:  Spanish to English - Flash Cards" was uploaded to the Google Play Store (Android) and Microsoft Store (UWP Windows 10). 

            - We are awaiting on the Microsoft Store to verify and accept it.  They usually do not do that on the weekends so maybe on Monday it'll go live.  They have a very long process but that is a good thing.  They check the UWP apps for viruses and compatibility issues.  They even have real humans test these apps out.  I know this because they rejected the JJJ-JP-PSP app and even sent me a minute long video showing what the issue was.  I was able to quickly fix it and resubmit.

           -To show you what we go through as developers, below is an E-Mail from the Google Play Store rejecting the app.  The reason they give is that it has offensive language like profanity.  I wrote the app, entered all of the content and that's news to me!  Of course that was just an automated response.  Play Store usually has new apps go live in 2-4 hours with very little input.  Now, the flash cards in the app are just basic words and phrases.  There is nothing special in there and no foul language.  I did appeal the decision.  Who knows how long until they sort it out?  Once a real human tests it out, I'm sure it'll pass their standards and go live.  I'll update it here when that happens.
