Besides an app focusing on Obama’s oath of office speech, Brainglass has more titles available in iTunes to diversify user’s English language education, featuring a diverse array of interesting English texts. Based on Karaoke4English’s effective flashcard learning methodology users can improve their spelling and vocabulary using self-selected exercises with any one of these unique apps. Brainglass’ learning algorithm remembers words users have saved and how often they do exercises, together with tracking scores they get on individual exercises. Based on this, the app guides users intelligently and easily through the maze that is English language learning.

In order to ensure that the app remains flexible enough to be utilized by as many non-English speakers as possible, Karaoke4English’s interactive dictionary includes automatic translation from English to Spanish, German, Russian, French, and Italian, with more languages scheduled to become available in the near future. Karaoke4English: Obama Reader is currently available on the Apple App Store for $2.99 in the Education category.
