As featured in Travel+Leisure Magazine: The Best iPhone Apps for Travelers
"Most iPhone language apps have an Achilles’ heel: they require an expensive data connection to work abroad. Lingolook, though, lives on your phone. Its clean, cartoonish flash cards of important words and phrases—more than 300, from “I’m allergic to nuts” to “speak slowly”—are said aloud if you tap your screen, delivering you from faux pas and pronunciation debacles."
Speak Mandarin Chinese like a local with a tap of your Multi-Touch display using Lingolook, an invaluable new travel phrasebook application for iPhone. Master perfect pronunciation of essential travel keywords and phrases from over 500 "talking translations" or flash your iPhone with the large type translations showcased on 120 cleverly designed flashcards.

iTouch: Ensure Sound Effects are on. In Settings, choose General > Sound Effects and select whether you want the audio to play over the internal speaker, through the headphones, or both.

Glad they updated!
Pleasant surprise, especially after such a long time! :)
Not working right on IPhone 6+
No matter what item I tap on, the wrong flash card appears, or the app crashes. Needs fixing! (iPhone 6+, latest iOS)
Otherwise I like it, but I wish the pinyin were larger.
