Pretty good and informative
I like this app because it teaches you both formal and informal with Russian and English translation. In the beginning she kept referring to Sweedish words which has no place in a Russian language, so not sure why she was doing that. It's confusing going back and forth between formal and informal, but I think she is doing well at teaching this. I recommend this app.
