wpToGo app for Android

I’m posting this from my G1 using the wpToGo app for Android. Not suited for longer posts of course, but I can see myself posting more often because of the convenience.

Librarium released on Android

October 16, 2009

Do you enjoy reading Latin but don’t have the time to flip through your tattered dictionary? Tap your way through the Latin classics with my Librarium application on Android. Definitions for words are found online, and stored on your Android phone for quick display the next time.

If you know a little Latin, or remember some from high school, Librarium gets you back into reading Latin without all the drudgery of looking up all those definitions and declensions in the dictionary.

Add your own pages of text. Included are a sampling of poems by Catullus, and even the first paragraph from The Hobbit 🙂

Here is the list of pages by author (you can also list by title, recently read, or your favorites):

byauthor

Tap on any Latin word to see its English definition appear at the top of the page. You can also change the font size and style, or the day/night settings to make reading your Latin more enjoyable:

displaypage

If you want to override the online definition, simply long-press the word. You will see the full definition from the online dictionary, and you can edit the definition any way you like. This makes Librarium very useful for studying Latin or creating your own text translations.
