Ran into Gary Carr at the NY Games Conference last week. He is the creator of the “I Know Jamaican” iPad app. Now before you say its fake, check it out for yourself. Gary tells me he took pains to make sure the lingo was as authentic as possible. The way it works is by tapping on canned common phrases which you can then translate to “Jamaican.” Jamaican in this sense actually being “Patois” which is the dialect of Jamaicans. There is actually no such thing as speaking Jamaican. I give it my seal of approval having heard it myself. Goan Rude Boi!
You can get the full app here. There is also a dumbed-down free app as well in case you want to try it out. You can see the video below:
