Duolingo is a superb, free language app for iOS and Android.  You can learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Irish, Dutch, Danish, and Swedish.

It only takes 5 mins a day to get the basics of a foreign language.  Mastering one helps allow you to rapidly adjust to others ... for example for a deployment or operation.  What better use of a few minutes of each day!

Great for learning vocabulary, I don't find it so useful for the development of longer sentences and expressions. Should be used as part of a wider tool kit.
