It took me about fifteen months to work through the entire Fluenz French course. I liked its format and it provided the perfect basis for continued study. I still return to it to brush up on certain areas, and I particularly find the flashcards useful. But to answer your question, I have a number of apps on both my laptop and iPhone that I use on a daily basis when studying French. Here they are:
Duolingo - this is a fantastic language-learning app that is my main resource for continued study. They have both a free and a premium version. I used the free version for a couple of months until I decided to upgrade in order to eliminate the ads and other restrictions. They start you out with a quiz to determine your level and then structure your learning plan. Take a look.
Forvo - a great pronunciation guide with audio.
Collins French Dictionary
Leaf Project - this is another language learning course that I refer to sometimes for additional explanations.
Tex's French Grammar - This one is based out of the University of Texas in Austin. Great explanations on any topic.
Reverso: a good translation app.
Translate: a better translation app
Reword: A great vocabulary builder.
Linguistica: News in slow French
And if you listen to music on Pandora, they have a great pre-made station called French Cafe. Everything from Edith Piaf up to the present. Lyrics are a great way to sharpen your listening skills.
Hope you find some of this useful. Good luck!
