Happy Birthday in Polish and Tourist Language Learn & Speak app review

Happy Birthday in Polish

I hope that's not the only way to say Happy Birthday... actually I remember a song which goes "Sto lat, sto lat, nananna na."
But really, what's with the long complicated phrase? :( I can only pronounce urodzin, and I thought Monday was hard enough!

 This is the Tourist Language Learn & Speak app in my new phone, brought to me by turning 23 and family pressure to move on from my old cranky 5 year old cell which turns itself off when it pleases.
 I'm not into fancy stuff, the new phone is not that fancy (compared to what is on market), I couldn't (and still can't) get used to it... but once I discovered free language apps, I'm starting to like it.

I've found many language apps in Adroid Market but this one got my attention.
It offers common phrases and the alphabet and numbers of each language.
It has many countries (it also gives you a little info about each of them), it lets you choose your native language and allows you to do a search by languages too, it has many ones:
My Pros:
· Some that I was pleased to find, like Finnish, Dutch, Danish, Russian, Romanian,
· Some that I was surprised to see, like Arabic, Hindi, Hungarian, Latvian, Thai and Vietnamese.
My Cons:
· It lacks some, (but I think I'm being picky here) like Greek, Norwegian, Swedish, Afrikaans,
I don't know if this happens just in my phone but:
· In some languages, the voice is not natural at all, it does sound like a robot: in: Latvian, Romanian and Vietnamese,
· And in some it says the language is not supported, like in: Bulgarian, Lithuanian, Slovenian and Thai.

As I said, there are many language apps, I installed other Polish ones but they are not as good as this one, and also some Greek ones, but I'm not really happy with them.
Maybe I'm a bit overloaded of information here.
