It keeps freezing.


After the upgrade it became almost unusable. How can I downgrade, please? Keep my money for the upgrade, just give me the "old" version. Iphone X, I've reinstalled it a few times... Nah, it still keeps freezing. Madness. Very frustrating that is.

Good to see new content. Thanks!

Very impressed


Very comprehensive and well presented app. Interface is well designed and the record and compare features are impressive, I particularly like the random word tests. I will be recommending to my students. Works as described on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2.
