Dictionary Linguee

DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Dictionary Linguee is a dictionary app with a lot of powerful features. It has a full dictionary for several languages and includes translation between languages. It's also available offline if you don't have an Internet connection. This is definitely helpful to those learning Spanish because it gives you a quick, bi-directional dictionary to figure out some basic words that may not be covered in the lessons. It won't teach you Spanish all on its own, but it's good reference material to accompany other learning apps and platforms. It's also completely free with no in-app purchases.

Duolingo

Price: Free with in-app purchases
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Duolingo is perhaps the most popular language learning app on mobile. It supports well over a dozen languages and they're all free to learn. What makes this app different is that you play games to learn. There are little matching games and sound bytes that you'll have to decipher. It's all formatted to play like a game so that you can enjoy yourself while you learn. The lessons are bite sized so you can complete them on the go. Duolingo's developers claim that 34 hours with this app is the same as one semester of learning in school. In any case, it's worth a shot!

Google Translate

DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Google Translate is an invaluable tool for those learning a new language. The app lets you translate words and phrases into pretty much whatever language you want for free. On top of that, it has a live translator that you can use by speaking into your phone. It even has a camera mode so you can get translations of things like signs, or a piece of paper. The app fills in a lot of the blanks left from other apps. Like Dictionary Linguee, it won't actually teach you any languages. However, you can use it as a reference tool to help making learning Spanish go by faster.

Memrise is another one of the more popular and highly rated options for learning Spanish. It uses a variety of teaching methods, but it mostly revolves around playing a game. You act as a spy and you must convince people from a foreign country that you're cool. You'll be quizzed on various words and phrases, grammar, spelling, and more. It's a neat way to get to where you're going, although you will have to pay eventually to get all of the content. It pairs well with other apps such as Duolingo.

Everybody knows about Rosetta Stone. They've been a gold standard for non-school-based language learning for decades now. It supports over two dozen languages and that includes Spanish. The app focuses on practical conversation skills, speech recognition, and it focuses evenly on speaking, reading, and listening. It comes with offline support and you can sync your progress between the app and the desktop version. It is quite expensive. More so than some of its competition. However, if this is the way you learn, it'll be worth every penny.

SpeakTribe is a Spanish-specific learning app that seems to work pretty well. It uses a range of education techniques, including grammar, vocabulary, conversational learning, and more. It focuses a lot on in-depth explanations of things like grammar rules and trying to clearly explain what would normally be confusing concepts. It's a bit more reading than other language apps, but it's definitely a more comprehensive approach. Like most, you can try it out for free but you'll need to fork out some money to get all the content.
