Can you tell your bowsies from your gougers from your gurriers? No? Well, it's time to stop acting the maggot and find out, courtesy of this invaluable app that's been donkey's years in the making (only coddin'). It's absolutely jammers with nouns, verbs and sayings that didn't quite make the Oxford Dictionary, including a few manky ones that are guaranteed to leave some oul' wans and Holy Joes completely morto. On the other hand, slappers and sleeveens will be dying for a gawk. So, feck it, you just know this is one app you just can't do without …
Every bleedin’ word -- over 150 phrases, definitions and usages -- is read by real Irish people (be the hokey!) so you’ll be wittering on like a native in jig time. Perfect for culchies, jackeens and foreigners alike.
• Shake for a random phrase
• 'see also' for words with similar meanings
• Hilarious audio track, with a wide range of Irish accents
Right off the bat- there needs to be a volume control. The music comes over ok, but it's hard to hear the words. Other than that issue the app is entertaining!!
If you are ever planning on going to Dublin this is a great tool. Not so much for northern Ireland.
I absolutely love this app. It is so entertaining. I love everything about Ireland. Like Irish folk tales. This is a great app. I definitely give it four stars.
