Take advantage of LingQ on the go with the new LingQ for iOS.
With a brand new interface and all new functionality, LingQ for iOS is the perfect tool for on-the-go learning:
- Add new lessons on the app
- Look up new words, add them as LingQs or mark them as Known
- Study lessons a sentence at a time with the new Sentence View
- Add lessons to playlists to listen on the go
- Review lessons and LingQs offline
Open the app and log in using your LingQ username and password. If you don’t yet have an account, tap on Register to create an account.
When first opening iLingQ, make sure you are connected to the internet. Lessons can be stored locally, but must first be downloaded through the app. Only the lessons you have previously opened while you were online will be accessible offline.
After logging in, you will be shown a list of all your active courses in the selected language. Tap a course to see a list of lessons in that course. Then, select the lesson you would like to study.
Tap on a blue word to see a list of hints, then select the hint that you like best. If you want to add your own hint, tap on “Check Dictionary” to look this word up in the dictionary.
Some words also have Related Phrases. These are surrounding phrases in which this word appears. To save one of these phrases, just tap on it and a blue popup will appear. Then select a hint or tap “Check Dictionary” to search this phrase in the dictionary.
To review a LingQ, just tap on it and a yellow popup will appear. You can edit the hint, status and sentence and even add notes and tags to your LingQs.
You can also add tags and notes to LingQs directly from the app. To add a note, just tap the Notes field and start typing. To add a tag, tap on “+Tag”, enter a tag and press “OK”. You can also delete tags by tapping on them then tapping on the “Delete” button that appears to the right.
Study with Sentence View
If the full text is a little overwhelming, try the new Sentence View. Sentence View will allow you to concentrate on your lesson one sentence at a time. In addition, you can also tap the text-to-speech icon to hear audio for the whole sentence.
To add a lesson to a playlist, open a course then swipe to the left on a lesson. You will see an “Add to Playlist” button appear. Simply tap this button then select a playlist.
Once a lesson is added to a playlist, the lesson text and audio will begin downloading automatically. Once you have finished adding lessons to a playlist, you can listen to the playlist by going to the Playlists tab. The lessons will play in order, and can be shuffled or repeated as well.
