I like it, some ideas for improvement
-best Chinese tap dictionary I've found
-discrete pull-up window at the bottom of the screen to see your vocabulary
-Lietner review system integrated into flash cards
-Simple flash card system
-text on flash cards is pretty small
-no end to flash cards review session
-pinyin only has tone numbers, no tone marks
-when you master all the flash cards in a deck, it would be nice if there was something like, "Congrats! Keep studying? Or Exit?" It's just a nice option.
-integrate time boxing into a flash card review session, it makes studying feel more like a game.
-integrate automated scheduled reviews with reminder notifications
-adjustable text size on flash cards.
-integrate tone marks.
-allow for personalized flash cards by highlighting entire sentences and then selecting "add to flash cards"
-allow access to Chinese-Chinese definitions, like the ones that Safari uses for iOS6
Great product with lots of potential.
