[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Learning French is easier and more convenient than ever with the new Livres Audio French audiobook app from Inkstone Mobile. iPhone users can enjoy access to over 1,180 free French audiobooks, including adaptations of classic novels, short stories and poems.
Learn the proper pronunciation and intonation of the French language from native speakers while doing everyday activities and household chores. Speed up or slow down the audio playback to better enhance study and increase comprehension.
"When learning to speak French, it is typically difficult to keep up with a native speaker. We developed Livres Audio with French students in mind," says Patrick Thompson, founder of Inkstone Mobile. "We have fine-tuned the playback feature to adjust the speed of speech without altering the pitch. For instance, beginners can slow down a reading to better navigate the proper pronunciation, while a more advanced speaker can speed it up for a greater challenge."
Livres Audio offers the same features as other popular Inkstone Mobile apps, including a sleep timer for listening before bed and high quality audio playback. The app also features Inkstone's signature user interface with easy navigation and a sleek audioplayer that allows you to download books over wi-fi and play them back anywhere.
