New app/s ?

A few things I thought worth discussing. I happened to notice a little box somewhere mentioning a new app while I was clicking on a link to a new page which caught my interest. I tried to come back and couldn't find it. I've noticed this before. These little ad boxes that grab your attention but when you come back to them they've changed to a different ad [they're a couple of boxes below ChinePod News box...currently it's about the 5 languages]. I kept refreshing my Home page till it eventually reappeared [though I can't get that to happen now]. I'm wondering if it's possible to have a link under these ads to see all ads?

When I found the ad and clicked on it, it took me to this page:

..this looks like it's called "Learn Chinese" so I thought this was the old app that's been around for at least a year. I guess it's an updated version. If so, how have others found it? This page though shows the adroid version, to get to the iphone version you click on a link down the bottom which takes you here:

This seems to be calling it "ChinesePod Subscriber Edition"...maybe that's just what itunes has it under and it's still actually the "Learn Chinese" app but I couldn't see that name anywhere on that page. So I am wondering if this is new, or an updated version of the old [looks like the latter].

What really caught my attention though was an "app" called the Shanghainese lesson pack:

hadn't heard of this before. I guess it's just a collection of the Shanghainese lessons. Has anyone been using that?

I have been using this app:

on my iphone and its working pretty well. just as said in the description on the page it lets you listen to the three audios (lesson, dialogue and lesson review)

then you have the dialogue in writing and each single character of the dialogue translated.

the next option of this app is vocabulary and the fourth and last one is called
