Pretty good but pretty much just for vocab

KelsiRed

The app itself is good and does what it was designed to do with relative ease. It has a medium level of useful vocabulary which can be used to build up ones basic every day word list. However, this program does not cover any of the important structure and grammar of the language which is HIGHLY important for understanding the speaking the language (and really any language). I am actually in Finland and am taking Finnish language classes here so this is good for vocabulary supplements to the language lessons which I am already taking. I would have rated this higher if there had been attention paid to explaining the grammar and quirks of the language at even a basic level. Given how complex this language is to learn for English speakers I think that is a vital part of the learning, not just vocabulary. Perhaps that can be added at some later point.

My Favorite App

I used to have problems with this app crashing, but since the update (knock on wood), it has run perfectly.

This app has a far more useful vocabulary than most of the others I've dl'd. Its categories include common verbs & adjectives as well as helpful phrases, rather than focusing on animals & other things you're unlikely to actually use much. Its learning system is also good, although could be improved by the use of pictures & a better way of distinguishing when you've actually learned a word as opposed to just remembering it that particular round.

But still, probably the most extensive & best of all the Finnish apps I have.

Cool, but flashcard issue needs fixing

MutatingReplicator

I like this app a lot, though the vocabulary is limited and there is an issue with the flashcards. The "hot" zones for the green and red buttons on the flashcards are way too small, which requires you to push on them in an exact certain way to get the app to detect your input. I don't see why the app couldn't detect a finger press anywhere on the lower left corner of the card as a "check" and anywhere on the right corner as a "miss."
