An app which lets you find other speakers your minority languages
I'd like to reccomend that everybody who is using Duolingo Gaelic also downloads another free app called Amikumu.
It is a bit like Facebook in that you see other people's statuses etc - but only in the languages you choose to. For each language you say you know (at any level), you will be able to see a list of the other users, and how far away they are.
It's really good for finding people with the shared interest in a language. Especially if you're travelling, for example if a Gaelic speaker from the Isle of Lewis, found himself in London, he would be able to find other speakers, meet up and catch the craic.
It's really awesome, although i must admit that it was originally designed for Esperanto, and hasn't quite taken off yet for other languages - but we can change that!
I tried it on both my tablet and my phone, but neither one gets me past the registration screen. I have a feeling that the password requirements are more stringent than just 8 or more letters. I haven't heard back from the IT person. I guess I should try a stronger password and see if that works.
