I have been using the Learn Korean Phrasebook quite a lot in preparation for my trip to Korea and for refreshers while I am here. It will also be easy to access the right phrase in a pinch. It has a clean, nice interface with quick reference categories. The voice feature is nice for hearing the phrases and I like the ability to "like" some phrases that you use a lot and want to keep for easy access. This is a great app for quickly learning a bit of conversational and emergency Korean if you don't have a lot of time. I will keep exploring it in more depth in the future alongside other methods. One note is that on my phone the app icon actually shows up as "Korean Lite." There is a pro version with additional features, categories and phrases. This free version has plenty for me to learn, though - for a while.
