What's New in Version 3.5.1
• Bug fixes
I absolutely love this app, it's consistent and has excellent features. The addition of the alphabet is welcome. My Russian teacher often compliments me on my pronunciation and I think it's because I use this app in my spare moments. What I would love to see is is perhaps an indication of where the stress of a word is (I have phonetics turned off otherwise my mind sadly ignores the Russian letters), perhaps also it would be nice to have folders for saved words instead of a long list. But never-the-less it's a great app and well worth buying the word bundles, fantastic to have this resource offline too.
This app is very useful for taking first steps to learning Russian at your own pace. Having a native speaker to pronounce words and letters is a must and really helps. A good choice.
Compliments my learning of Russian so well, I can practice speaking and reading anywhere when I have a few minutes to spare.
