KaKaoTalk – Pros and Cons

KaKaoTalk – Pros and Cons

7SHARESFacebookTwitter This is a short review about applications that are available for Android. I will be typing about communicative applications and hopefully I’ll include a good enough argument for people to switch and pick applications for communicating with others. We’ll review more applications like LINE, WhatsApp, and more.  This page will be part of a series of comms apps that I will be reviewing and at the end of the review, I’ll be giving judgement on which application is best to use and for what purpose.   KaKaoTalk KaKaoTalk is an application that is being used by “82 million people” around the world. I believe that the majority of that 82 million comes from South Korea, so it’s likely if you are going to live in Korea, KaKaoTalk will likely be the first choice app for South Koreans and probably you, too. Pros: It’s free to download Messaging ability to others A free call function. You can call others with this application if you have a 3G or WiFi connection. This obviously means that others will also need KaKaoTalk on their phones and will have to add you their “friends list”. You can download free and premium themes to customize the look of the application. You can change the background for each “chat room” that you have. You can create group chats, to talk to more than one person. Cons: Not many people outside of South Korea use KaKaoTalk. While it’s a nice app, unfortunately, not too many people use it in the west and Asia. It’s more of a local app for South Koreans to communicate.  It doesn’t have a computer application, yet. So, you can’t run this app on your computer. You have to pay for emoticons that are otherwise not free. KaKaoStory  The KaKaoTalk app comes with addons which can be separately downloaded in the Play Store, as an addon to KaKaoTalk. The way it works is similar to Facebook rather with images instead. Perhaps, more similar to Instagram. – As a person who has never used Instagram, I don’t know. You, essentially, post picture updates (as opposed to text updates with Facebook) and people can view, comment and rate the pictures with their different options set. You’ll also be able to use filters that change the look of the pictures, – similar to Instagram’s system. Conclusion I use this application to chat with my girlfriend every night, and I’ve been using it to speak & message to her for over 1 and a half years. I’ve never had any issues with it, other than when they have had server issues which has made the app unusable. However,...

Chinese learning app for Android

9SHARESFacebookTwitter As a person who has been studying Chinese Mandarin the past two years, finding an application for Android to learn Chinese is a tedious task. There are many good Chinese Mandarin apps for Android. However, the bad applications outnumber the good ones. I’d say when it comes to Android, you’ll want to go paid or you’ll want to look really hard and test all of the Chinese apps you come across. The applications that I’ll be detailing about is called “Learn Chinese Mandarin“. It’s a phrase book application which contains all of the essential phrases you’ll need to know if you are visiting mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and other areas that speak Chinese. While the application is mainly focused on mainland Chinese Mandarin, a lot, if not the majority of the phrases can be used in any Chinese Mandarin speaking country. Learn Chinese Mandarin application As you can see this is a pretty good applications. It gives you all that you need to know if you are simply visiting a Mandarin speaking country. It details the following that are free: Greetings General Conversation Numbers Directions & Places Transportation Eating out These are the categories that are not free, and that are classed under the “Pro feature” mark: Time and Date Accommodation Shopping Colours Cities and Provinces Countries Tourist Attractions Family Dating Emergency Feeling Sick Tongue Twisters Each category contains around 68 useful phrases and along with those phrases are voices that will help you pronounce the Chinese Mandarin words. It will also give you the PinYin and the Chinese characters to aid your reading skills. Other features Over 600 common words and phrases Ad-free! Quality audio recordings by native speakers Search by keywords No internet connection needed Has useful tips for travelers A favorites folder to store all favorite phrases. More images As you can see from the pictures above, you can save your favorite phrases in your favorites folder and in the second picture you can see exactly how this application works. Previously, I said that you could see the PinYin and the Chinese characters, and on the right of those is a button you can click to hear the pronunciation. The pronunciation is unfortunately (for me) based on a mainland Chinese accent and is however still understandable for Taiwanese listeners. The simple phrases is what makes this application so good, so I implore anyone who wants to learn Chinese to download this...
