Very Helpful Sound Recordings

While it may only be a sort of dictionary for Swiss German words, I found the sound recordings especially helpful. The greatest difference between Hochdeutsch and Schwyzerdüütsch is the pronunciation, so this is a great resource.

Thumbs way up

I LOVE this app. So worth the money when living in Switzerland and trying to learn the local dialect. Very easy to use and navigate.
Highly recommended

Well made Swiss German-English dictionary

The only critique I have is that all the Swiss German sentences (examples) should have had an accompanying audio, not just the words.
