Rosetta Stone Android App Launches: TOTALe Companion™

Free Demo


For the past two years I’ve been fortunate enough to help with developing Rosetta Stone mobile products. Since TOTALe Companion for iPod touch® and iPhone® devices launched last year, we’ve gotten many, many requests for an Android™ version. When I travel and stop by our kiosks at airports, I’ve heard the requests in person: “This is great, but when will we get the Android version?!”

Well, folks, we are happy to announce that today is the day Rosetta Stone releases TOTALe Companion for Android!

As the name implies, this app is a companion to your Rosetta Stone TOTALe subscription. So when you’re away from your computer, TOTALe Companion allows you to practice the same content you’re already learning in Rosetta Course and using in Rosetta World games and Rosetta Studio sessions. The app is perfect for spending a short (or long!) amount of time simply practicing speaking, polishing your pronunciation, or reviewing vocabulary. Our state-of-the-art speech engine is included and gives the same speedy and accurate pronunciation feedback you’re used to on your computer!

This application is initially targeted for several strategic Android devices, and we’re committed to expanding the number of devices in the near future.
