Ratings and Reviews
Took a chance.
Read the reviews from a year ago, but also read from the publisher that they had completely reworked the app. So I thought I would take a chance and try the app. Thus far, the app seems to have addressed the concerns people had raised.
They do offer a faster speed for flipping the cards.
They do offer the ability to select specific chapters beginning with chapter 4.
It does look like even within a chapter you can select specific cards for review.
Now I have only used the app about 5 minutes, so I may have to come back and update my review. But so far I am happy that I have an audio Flashcard system to go with the book I have. Since I am teaching myself, the audio is a must have.
DO NOT BUY
This app's only asset is its pronunciation feature. Everything else is terrible. You can't search for a word, you can't organize words alphabetically by English definition, you can't save any study sets (what is the point of making them?) so you can put 40 mins into creating a study set only for it to disappear when you close the app, you can't create any kind of automatic quiz feature, you can't deselect all (so you have to manually uncheck every single word you don't want included in a set). Unbelievable waste of money.
Exactly what I was looking for!
I've been using The First Hebrew Primer Third Edition to learn the language on my own. It's a great book. But now that there is an app to help me learn the vocabulary, I'm extremely happy. To be able to hear how the words are to be said while I'm looking at the word is well worth the $9. The app seems to work just as advertised with no problems so far. In fact, I think its the best flashcard program that I've ever used for iPhone or the computer. It's really easy to understand and to modify to suit my study needs. BTW, the cost for the box of the same flashcards (minus the pronunciation, of course) is $24. I still miss the feel of paper flashcards, but this is a steal.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
