Customer Reviews

Very sad, this could be the Best...

Could be the best, but has two major problems. Test settings cannot be changed because this crashes the app every time. Only tests sound, with 4 multiple choice options. If you get the sound right but were wrong about the meaning, you cannot mark yourself wrong, which makes the SRS useless. In study mode, it makes you review every card in a group of 500, including the ones you have mastered, so you see the same 500 cards in the same order every time. A real shame, as this is the only app on the market with 10,000 characters. If these problems were fixed, I would give it 6 stars.

Good study aid

I just wish my fingers were smaller so that I could tap the arrows easier.
