iDoms Vocab

iDoms Vocab is Vocabulary/Flashcard training tool with:
– Greek (first 300 words with audio)
– Biblical Hebrew (first 300 words with audio)
– Latin (extracted from the Summa Theologiae)
– Many parameters are adjustable
– A brief summary after each exercise
– You can create your own custom lists from the words in the App
– Optionally practice both ways
– Apple Watch support

I wrote this program because of my own need to train my vocabulary. What I find most important is a combination of repetition and automatic progress. This App tries to achieve that. With the use of a point system. The App registers how well you know a word. If you know a word good enough, it will only ask it once in a while for the sake of repetition. When a word is classified as known, a new word is added to the next exercise.

A lot of the parameters of the App are adjustable, and this makes it a very flexible flashcard application.
The first 50 words are for free to test the App, after that vocabulary sets can be purchased using In-App purchases. The revenue I use to pay towards my development cost such as Developer License etc.

The App is available for iPhone,iPod and iPad, and can be found on the App Store. If you have any problems, then please contact us using the contact form.

Please be aware that you need to use the restore purchase function if you want to use the App on multiple devices. This is for free (you will never be charged twice for the same list) and the button can be found at the bottom of the list with vocabulary sets.

(note: a small amount of users experience problems with the upgrade to version 3.0 if they are using iCloud. If for some reason the upgrade process fails then a database reset might be needed and the quickest way to get back into business. This can be done under settings. You would need to restore your purchases, reinstall the vocabulary sets and start again. However, the ‘I Know’ button can help to quickly accept words you already know, and to move to a portion of the list in which you previously were).

iDoms Portal now also on Android

After we have had the iDoms Portal for iPhones and iPads for over 2 years, we finally finished up the first release of the Android version. The portal currently provides access to articles, audio files and videos aggregated from the various websites of the Dominican Order.  We have been working very hard behind the scenes in creating this new App which is available for free from the Google Play Store. The free App for iPhone and iPad is still available from the App Store.

We have also created an App which can be used as a Vocabulary/Flashcard training tool for Greek, Latin and Hebrew, the iDoms Vocab. You can read more about it here: the iTunes store.If you have any ideas/suggestions/comments or questions regarding our Apps, please go to the Contact section on the website to email us!

iDoms Portal

The iDoms Portal currently provides access to articles, audio files and videos aggregated from the various websites of the Dominican Order.  We have been working very hard behind the scenes in creating this  App which is available from the App Store and from Google Play.

The articles are automatically synchronized and the user can see if there are any new articles or videos available by the unread badge or notifications (which is automatically updated using Push Notifications). Future updates of the application will provide access to a wider variety of content and will introduce extra functionality. Additional applications will follow to help spread the message of the Gospel using this new emerging medium.

The application is suitable for iPhone, iPad and Android devices

We have started from scratch with the new App, building it from the ground up. A lot of time has been spent on creating a whole new system which has the capability to be very easily extended. One of the great advantages is that it also allows other organizations to use it to create and maintain their own App in a relatively easy way (please contact us at info@idoms.org if you are interested in discussing the possibilities).
Last year we created the iDoms Reader and became aware that there is indeed an interest in iPhone/iPad Apps which provide good quality Catholic content. This new release is a huge step forward and includes a great new iPad interface which didn’t make it into the first release. We hope you enjoy this update, and please don’t forget to go to the App Store now and dowload the iDoms Portal!

We have also created an App which can be used as a Vocabulary/Flashcard training tool for Greek, Latin and Hebrew, the iDoms Vocab. You can read more about it here: the iTunes store.If you have any ideas/suggestions/comments or questions regarding our Apps, please go to the Contact section on the website to email us!

Dominican iPhone/iPad Apps

On the 24th of January last year, Pope Benedict XVI released his message for the 45th World Communications Day. In it, he reminds all Catholics of the need to witness to the truth in this new digital age of internet communication and social networking.  He reminds us that, “there exists a Christian way of being present in the digital world: this takes the form of a communication which is honest and open, responsible and respectful of others.”

The new iDoms Portal is a way of continuing to respond to the Pope’s call for evangelization in the digital age. The iDoms portal provides access to articles, videos and audio files aggregated from the various websites of the Dominican Order. Future updates of the application will provide access to a wider variety of content and will introduce extra functionality.

The new app was created jointly by Friars from St. Joseph Province and the Province of Ireland and is suitable for both the iPhone/iTouch and the iPad.

So, if you have an iPhone, iPad or Android device, please read more on the iDoms Portal App page or download the iDoms Portal app from iTunes or Google Play.

We have also created an App which can be used as a Vocabulary/Flashcard training tool for Greek, Latin and Hebrew, the iDoms Vocab. You can read more about it here: the iTunes store.
