Spanish Past Tense for Windows Phone

May 16, 2013 1 comment

Over the last couple of months we have been working hard to update all of our Spanish language learning apps for Windows Phone.  Originally, we were going to provide small updates for Windows Phone 8 users that would remove black bars and add the new tile sizes.  Once we started going through the apps we couldn’t stop and have actually begun to overhaul the apps with a spruced up look and feel plus additional content.

Here is a look at some of the changes that are coming:
