[prMac.com] Kiev, Ukraine - Digital Education Labs today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Wordfolio 1.4.1 for iOS, a foreign language learner's assistant that totally changes the experience of learning a new language. Wordfolio is a must-have app for any foreign language learner and a unique way to store all the foreign words you learn.
Wordfolio makes learning foreign words considerably easier and more effective. The app makes it possible to replace the dozens of pages covered in the foreign words you are learning with a simple and convenient word tape which is always at your fingertips. During their language lessons, the students can save all the words in Wordfolio instead of writing them down in their notebooks. All the added words comprise the so called tape or portfolio of words you want to memorize. The app will remind you that you need to repeat the words and will determine the interval between the repetitions of a given word based on the proven method of spaced repetition.
One of the important features of Wordfolio is the possibility to keep all the words in iCloud which means the user can access the words on any iOS device. As of this moment, we have released the app version for iPhone but the company is planning to release versions for iPad and Mac as well so that the users would be able to add and practice words anywhere at their convenience.
The developers of Wordfolio are certain that it is ineffective to provide users with premade sets of words as other apps do. Those sets of words are not connected to any context, and many of the words are irrelevant to the users which makes them harder to memorize. It is much more effective to keep the words studied in class in one place so it would be easier to repeat them and find them when needed. The students find it easier to memorize words in connection with the context in which they have first heard them during the lesson or from their conversation partner, or read them in a book.

* Works for all languages supported by the iOS

* Add notes to your words, such as pronunciation or examples of usage
* Sort words alphabetically or by time of adding
* Archive the words you have properly memorized

* Convenient, intuitive and polished user interface

In Wordfolio, you will be able to add words from all the languages which can be used on iOS, including such exotic languages as Esperanto, and Sanscrit. This makes the app suitable for anyone who is learning either a popular or a rare foreign language.
"It's pretty strange that, while we keep our files, notes, task lists, and a bunch of other information in a cloud, we're still writing down the foreign words we learn in notebooks and can't find the word we need later or simply forget to repeat the words covered in previous lessons on time," states Eugene Kolpakov, one of the developers of this app." I created Wordfolio because I couldn't find a suitable app in the App Store when I had to learn dozens of new words covered during my Korean language lessons each week. I use it constantly now, and this is way more convenient and effective than words written in a notebook or just on sheets of paper."
Wordfolio is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. It is optimized for iPhone 5.
Pricing and Availability:
Wordfolio 1.4.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. The developers are willing to provide the promo-codes to reporters and bloggers who are interested in writing a review of the app.
