SignWriting List

Hi Ron -
If you go to:

Signbook app for SignWriting

It explains that it is designed for:

iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

So it appears it is only for Apple products right now…

Any plans, Lasse, to support Android or other Smart Phones?

Val ;-)

Hello Valerie and everybody on the SignWriting-List,
First of all a happy new year 2013 to all of you :)
We are happy to announce the release of the first SignWriting app in Apple’s Appstore: Signbook.
With this app for the iPhone and iPad one can search the Delegs dictionaries (which also include the corresponding SignPuddle dictionaries) of the following sign languages: ASL, DGS, LSE, LIBRAS, PJM, LSF, LSFB. So at the moment it is basically a portable SignWriting dictionary which you can carry in your pocket and lookup a sign no matter where you are. We are planning on adding further features in the future.
Here is the link to the app in the Appstore:
You can also find the app by searching for “Signbook” in the Appstore.
To cover at least a part of our expenses we have to charge $1.99 for the purchase of the app. But we think this is an affordable price for everybody.
Please try out the app, and do not hesitate to ask us questions or give us feedback.
Best regards,
