Lightbulb [APP] Localized Apps

Download: https://market.android.com/details?i....localizedapps

This app allows you to create shortcuts and choose which language each shortcut will use.

Extremely useful for people who like to use the phone in english and want to use a specific app on another language!

EXAMPLE: android system in english and run google maps in portuguese

Using a localized shortcut is slower because it has to change the language and then change it back after exiting the app. Please be patient!

The localization depends on the 3rd party app, this app will not translate it!

Android does not have support to launch applications on different languages. The workaround is to change the system language during the app execution.

You should use ISO639 languages (en, pt, fr, es, de, it, etc) and ISO3166 countries (US, BR, FR, ES, DE, IT, etc).

Simply Awesome.

I was thinking on something like this for months.

Was using a switch to change language, but this is far more useful!

Dave,

If you go to settings -> languages and change it to german. And then open navigation (NOT from my app's shortcut), does it speak in german?

Did you create a shortcut for maps or for navigation?

Thanks!

I've tried it with Navigon from spanish to english and it works (both menus and speech), but doesn't go back to spanish when I exit the app. Is that the expected behavior?

For those who are trying to use Navigation, try pointing to Maps and then launch Navigation from there!
