AppAdvice has teamed up with Blue Owl Software in order to offer you a chance to win one of ten (10) promo codes for xprompt for iPhone and iPod touch ($3.99). More people are traveling abroad, and more professions are seeing a larger diversity of employees. Because of this, you may find yourself struggling to breach a communication barrier. While not being able to properly ask for a cheeseburger isn't the end of the world, being able to receive or provide proper and prompt medical attention very well could be. Whether you're a patient or a part of the medical care staff, xprompt is your pocket-sized translator for medical-related needs. Ask and answer questions about medical history, a person's name, symptoms, and so much more. To use: pick your languages to translate from and to, choose whether you're a part of the "care staff" or patient, and narrow down what you need to get across. Short phrases and words are selectable by making your way through categories and subcategories. Ask where the bathroom is, when to take your medication, about your clothing, and nearly anything you should need while in a medical care environment. Phrases and words are both displayed and spoken. Controls include the ability to repeat the word or phrase, add it to the favorites list, and close for returning to the list. The app includes English, German, and Spanish, plus sign language support in British and German. Additional languages available via in-app purchase include: Afrikaans, Arabic, Bulgarian, British Sign language, Czech, Danish, English (USA), German Sign Language, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Norwegian, Russian, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, and Chinese (Mandarin) To have a chance at winning one of five xprompt promo codes, simply hit that blue tweet button near the bottom of this page or retweet this post from your favorite Twitter app before 11:59 PM PDT tonight (November 6th).
