What's New in Version 1.7
Fixed critcal bug. App crash when ipad restrictions is enabled. iPad 2 higher is required for best experience.
Assumes you still remember algebra
This isn't terrible, but it assumes you still remember high school algebra. The concepts aren't tough if you remember mathematical symbology. If you can't recognize the symbols you'll have no way to even reason your way to an answer. This app would benefit greatly (and would benefit users greatly) from a basic mathematics orientation for those preparing for the GRE who have been out of school long enough to have forgotten the symbols and formulas associated with math. Frankly I feel like I might as well be preparing to take a test on Cyrillic - I can barely understand what the question is asking of me.
Don't buy this!
I paid for the upgraded content. It worked for a day and there is no customer service or technical support. I just threw away $50 on this trash. Get Magoosh. They are way more helpful and you can contact a real person if needed.
Decent Content - Bad Interface
*Most of the content is high quality
*Many videos to explain tips and answers
*Probably the best APP for GRE prep
*Interface is like something out of the 1980s
*Many screen errors - the app programing seems like a failed port from their web version
*Some patently wrong answer with incoherent explanations
*Interface does not rotate without going crazy
*Navigation is needlessly arcane
