What's New in Version 2.1

Expensive for the basic programming
There are basics in the programming of the software that are missing. On the multiple choice, the answer options are so different that makes the exam extremely easy and we all know that in the real exams the answer options are often very close to each other. Once u click on an answer it blinks the correct answer for a minute but immediately moves on to the nxt question. It doesn't give u an option to go back & read the previous q/a. There is no option to change the txt & why do u have to touch right on the answers to scroll up & down? U can't even see what u r reading. Overall great idea but needs improvement but I haven't seen an update since I purchased the program last month. The content needs to get more thorough. Explanations are extremely short to the point they don't stay in memory and exams are too easy.
Could be a lot better
It's not a great learning tool. Okay if you are totally new to the industry, you might learn something. Aside from functionality issues mentioned by the others here, these card sets only explain terms, like a dictionary (and sometimes not wel eitherl). So don't expect exam type questions.
The multiple choice portions are really lame. It gives you four possible answers to a term, e.g. What's a base bid? The three wrong answers are not even trying to confuse you like the real test would. E.g. One of the wrong answers says It's an abbreviation for "Not In Contract!" Duh! It goes like that for the entire deck.
For what it is, $50 is way too much.
Just bought the ppi version, which is much better. It tests concepts not just words. See my review under their app.
Save your money, trust me.... Also no updates to this app in a very long time despite all the negative feedback. Come on kaplan you can do better.
Yes it could be better, but a good study aid
I agree with some of the other reviews about the app having the possibility of being better. This is, of course true of every app in my opinion. The program has the ability to operate in multiple choice mode or flash card mode (both with definition first or term first). I have used this app for the past my past three tests and passed them all. I passed one without it and failed another without it. As you can see I have far better chances of passing when I do use it. For $50 it is a great addition to your arsenal of study aids, and a far better value that the Archiflash app at three times the price.
