Ratings and Reviews
Very Confusing App
I have not been able to figure out how to use this app. When you look at a flash card how do you enter your answer?
I got this hoping to be able to practice my pip counting. I have the pip count option set but the pip counts are not shown. So this does not help me.
Also the help section needs some work. It's lacking things such as definitions of abbreviations and how to interpret the information that's presented with each card.
Would gladly pay for in app purchase of more advanced content like opening roll reply cards.
Looks useful but...
I am not sure how to use this app. played around a bit but couldn't get very far.
