얼마에요 – My first iPhone app

I lived in Korea last year and spent some time learning the language – just enough to shop and eat.  One of the biggest problems I had while shopping was translating numbers in my head without asking the person to repeat themselves 10 times.  I created this app to help me get better.

Pretend that you asked someone “How much does this cost?” and they answered ₩25,000. You know Korean numbers but now your on the spot and have to do the math quickly in your head.

You can use this app to practice. Just listen to the voice samples and punch in the numbers you hear.

There are three levels of difficulty:
Easy – ₩70,000, ₩5,000, ₩ 300, etc…
Medium – ₩76,000, ₩5,500, etc…
Hard – ₩76,500, etc…

Voice samples are downloaded from the internet. If you are not connected to the internet, it will use samples that you have heard before.
