Sorry for the late reply!

At the moment I'm only using the euronews, Advanced English Dictionary and the Global TV apps. I stopped using flashcards and now I'm focusing on getting new vocabulary from extensive reading and listening.

I forgot to mention these apps that I also use every day:

6. Podcast2go http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/podcast2go/2a27582c-a483-45ac-b4b4-8e868aa7d182

7. Radio24 (Italian Podcasts) http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/radio24/e3e8144b-daa3-433d-9cb6-f81f8b652e05

Thank yo for your suggestions. But do you have anything to recommend for Android phones?

Sorry, I never used an Android phone, but these 2 apps come to mind: Duolingo, Memrise.

You can also find a good podcast app, change the language, and search for podcasts in your target language. Also, try to find a dictionary that can save(favourite) words.

Thank you for the list of apps, I will check a few of them out and make use of them.

I can vouch for the Advanced Dictionary app, it is fun to use, very user friendly and free :wink:!

The great thing about mobile apps is that you can pop it open anywhere and anytime you want!
