What's New in Version 2.20140521
Great app overall but minor changes needed
The easiness of making cards and the color coding to help rate your mastery of the material is a nice touch. I do wish that when I changed the cards from normal to advanced viewing so that I could underline, use bullet points and bold, it wouldn't mess up the formatting for all the cards. I also wish that regardless of which view it is in, I could edit the cards when I saw a typo or spelling error. Spell check would also be a nice feature on this program. The support team is excellent and quick to respond, which is great.
Great app for practicing/learning languages.
I really like the way the flash cards work on the app, especially for the Chinese ones.
My only gripes with it are the fairly high price for a language pack compared to some other apps, and the lack of male voice for the pronunciations.
That said, this app is great with the ability to customize the starred cards and learn at whatever pace suits the individual.
Easy to use, and great way to study on the go.
This app is great! I'm studying for my PTCB test and this is making it a breeze to study when I'm not at home. I also use it at home, so need to buy flash cards. I love the color coding to help you know which you need work on.
I knocked off one star because I want to be able to reverse the cards from Q/A to A/Q
