Bug fixes and performance improvements.
I've been using DuoLingo for German for a while and love it. It does some really nice things that could seem like extras but are really important. For instance, it recognizes that "I eat" and "I am eating" are both correct. It also recognizes minor typos and alerts you to them without penalizing you. Tinycards doesn't do any of this. It also does things like not specify singular or plural for "you" (which are different words in German) and ding you for it when you don't guess correctly which one it meant. In fairness, it does allow you to claim that you were right on a "wrong" answer, but that's not a great solution for something intended to teach, IMHO. Final complaint... Duolingo's model is one of building you up as you earn gems and check off lessons you learned. Over time a lesson or two will degrade a little promoting you to review, which I like. This app lets you fill a bar for various lessons, but over the next few days ALL the bars degrade. It feels very punitive and like it's trying to force you to do an unreasonable amount of upkeep to _keep_ all those bars filled. I hope these issues all have inbound fixes because the app has potential, but is currently somewhat disappointing.
I don't ever write reviews but I Tinycards really does deserve it! Tinycards is fantastic! I'm using it to help out with my Italian currently but I'm going to use it with my school classes to! Personally, flash cards don't help me. Not usually at least. It doesn't help out with my style of learning. For me, I've found that the best way for me to study is to take a test of my words. Over and over and over again. Tinycards' flash cards aren't just show to you over and over again with a button to flip them over as you wish, you're actually tested on them and it (usually) knows when you're right or wrong. You can even make your own sets of flash cards! It clearly still needs work as it's fairly new (compared to Duolingo at least) but I love it! Super helpful!!!
Perfect alongside Duolingo
I've been waiting for Duolingo to offer a flash cards option. I was hoping it would be within the app, but Tinycards has other topics besides language.
It seems to still be in its early stage, with some nuances of languages not being clearly distinguished (for example, in German it only recognizes the preposition "sie" as "they", despite "sie" meaning other things as well) but I presume those will be fixed eventually.
I really recommend Tinycards though, and I'm excited to start using it more regularly.
