Ratings and Reviews
Perfect to have when you have so time to kill and catch up on some stick points. Works as intended.
Good... but not quite worth $10 yet. Needs fixes
Desperately needs preset flash card groupings!!! A huge pain to set up any flash cards at all... Ok, the only problem with this program really is the organization! However, it is extremely hindering. Trying to set up drills or practice flash cards is insanely annoying and the catagories and way everything is organized make the program a big pain and almost waste of time. This SERIOUSLY needs some sort of preset drills, scoring system or heck... something to make it easier to use. Right now, I regret buying this along with WordPower Korean which suffers from the same problem.
Could be excellent, but moving Flashcards is serious problem
The vocabulary for this app is very useful, and large enough to satisfy a wide range of users. The overall look and layout is excellent. The only drawback to me -- and it is a serious drawback --- is that, while flipping through flashcards, the green arrow that you press requires several (sometimes many, many) tries to get it to work. I don't experience that sensitivity on any other iPhone app. That really needs to be fixed, as it makes the experience too frustrating to use for any length of time. If this could be resolved, then it would be a real winner.
