Michael D. received the lads responsible for the Irish course on the Duolingo app at the Áras in a special get-together earlier today.

Writes Conradh na Gaeilge:

The seven contributors who created and translated the popular Irish course on Duolingo were honoured by the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, at a special reception to be held at Áras an Uachtaráin on Friday November 25th. Since the Irish course was launched just over 2 years ago, over 2.3 million people have used Duolingo to learn Irish.

Comhghairdeas.

They’ve done nothing wrong.

Apart from some innocent gumming.

“SixMinute studios are a gang of Irish developers who have ‘risen from the ashes’ of PopCap’s Dublin studio after its closure a year ago. With experience working on games like Plants vs Zombies and Bejwelled, we’re really excited to be releasing our newest game under our own banner to the iOS and Google Play app stores.
Pick A pet is a simple and addictive match-3 game, where the goal is to match up gummies to solve puzzles. Along the way you unlock special pets which you can power up and evolve to help you solve the levels…”

“I’ve been developing the app SportBox to a stage ready for testing and now I’m looking for test groups to put it through its paces and give me much needed feedback.
It’s basically designed to take the hassle out of organising sporting events, like 5 aside or tag rugby etc. Some of the features include recurring events, automatic invitations, group messaging and so on. If any Broadsheet readers users would like to be involved, you can download here: iPhone and Android

Or the thing he does with his hands.

Broadsheet keyboard code warrior Karl is giving a talk on the latest version of the app next Tuesday evening in the Science Gallery, Pearse Street, Dublin as part of the Xcake labs series.

It should be noted that this the presentation is aimed at a technical audience (but there’s plenty for the non-techies as well).

Kick off is at 6:15 with a presentation on app localisation by Alexey Rashevskiy.

I know you don’t normally do this but was wondering if you’d show these new interface designs for the Taxi Check-in app? We are all young Irish graphic designers working on this late into the night.

Taxi Check-in now has contracts with Xpert Taxis, Global Taxis, Reidy’s Cabs, and Exchequer Taxis. The app currently allows you to view the taxi details and send your location and the details to a friend. There’s big developements on the way this year which are really unique and will change what we expect when we hail a taxi off the street. Thanks from all of us.

 

Thoughts?

You may recall the post where we asked you to review a demo of a new sound app from some developers in Dublin.

It allows you to sync quality sound with the video you may have captured at a concert.

This just in (above): it seems to work.

The Stunning played a free gig at the Volvo Ocean Races in Galway on Friday night and they used 45sound at it. Fairly epic gig and I think it will be of interest to some of your Broadsheet readers of a certain generation.

This is them playing “Brewing Up A Storm” to finish the show: I think it shows off the 45sound concept pretty well. We’ve had 44 videos uploaded to the show but there must be a lot more that people haven’t yet uploaded, would be great if you could stick up a post asking for them.
