With this app, you can study these words arranged by their associated chapter in your Greek grammar, frequency, part of speech, and more. Now you never have to leave home without your Greek flashcards! It serves as an excellent resource for both new students, as well as those that have had Greek, but want to renew their studies.

Detailed Description of Features:
This program allows you to filter and sort your vocabulary cards in a number of helpful ways.

Once you are more familiar with the cards, you can quiz yourself, while the program tracks your right and wrong answers.

Worth every penny
I'm taking a class based on Mounce's Greek class and this app has all vocab words for year 1 and 2. This app crushes the competition. The UI is just amazing and it's a pleasure to use. I have corresponded with an employee of iCode, the developer, and he mentioned they plan to release custom decks in their next release (so you can save words you need practice with).
I was comparing this app to a different app that our instructor purchased that was 1/2 the cost, and he was impressed and regretted buying the cheaper app. I'm telling you, this is your only choice if you are taking Koine Greek.
It does have audio pronunciations, just to be clear, since I didn't see it explicitly mentioned on the store page. I also noticed that on my iphone4, audio only works when connected to wifi.
Exactly what I needed it to do!
This app presents me with Mounce's vocab flash cards exactly the way they are used in his textbook and workbook. They correlate perfectly. The settings are simple to use and I don't have to preprogram certain list of words to study. Just set what chapters you want to be quizzed on and it integrates them beautifully. Expensive, but worth every penny. I am practicing this week's vocab every where I go.
This app is great for Greek students. It not only quizzes you but it also teaches you how to pronounce it which is very helpful. The only thing is I wish there was a way to flag the words you don't know so you can go back and review them later.
