Definitions poor


Nicely organized to help you keep track of the words you know and the ones you don't but the word definitions are basic and without nuance, making it difficult to know how to distinguish the word from synonyms and how to use it in real life.

Word lists excellent, interface suboptimal


Grouping of the words into an "essential" list was great. However, needs to ability to rate words on a graded scale, vice a binary one (either "know it" or "don't know it")

Screenshots are misguiding


The screenshots show that these flashcards have 800 essential words, however they just have 300 words. Not worth $5
