S4BB Ltd has recently added another informative and educational application to their software line up: LearnChinese. A language barrier can be a sizeable obstacle to overcome. If you are heading to another country for business or pleasure, you should brush up on the native tongue before you go. Miscommunication could put you in a sticky situation. LearnChinese will assist you in learning Mandarin Chinese at a level you feel comfortable at. From the product description, the main features include:

  • More than 400 self-contained audio lessons to pick from!
  • Within each lesson, you may pause at any time and resume later from that time onwards.
  • Audio lessons contain a set of comprehensive Mandarin Chinese learning materials which come in several difficulty levels: Newbie, Elementary, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate and Advanced.

With this LearnChinese, I can share my thoughts in another language. For example - I can say “I love my BlackBerry” like this

"I love my BlackBerry"

…of course in this case BlackBerry is referring to the actual fruit, but close enough. You can pick up LearnChinese for free at the CrackBerry App Store.
