What's New in Version 2.3
Useless But Helpful
This is a cool app, and I was able to learn a lot, however there are a few parts I'm not fond of. It doesn't start out with the alphabet, so I was clueless as to what the app was talking about until I got 15 other apps to give me that alphabet. Once I learned the alphabet it was more helpful, but it has a bug where if I leave the Internet on while using it, the app will undoubtedly crash. Also, there are so many words to learn in a single category that it's overwhelming. If you divide the categories up into smaller categories, fix the bug, and add an alphabet, it would be a five star app.
It would seem to me that in order for someone to learn a language, they would first need to learn the alphabet of that language. Lessons on learning what the letters are and the sounds that they make seem to be inconveniently missing from this app. Now, as a beginner, I cannot simply start reading and sounding out the words unless that particular instruction has been put forth in another lesson. I do look forward to using this app. It does appear to be somewhat informative, but I cannot until it includes another basic lesson plan.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of some errors in the system where things are not as they should be. For instance, when you click on a photo, nothing happens or another photo suddenly is clicked. Otherwise a really good learning tool for someone like me who knows a bit of greek grammar and just forgot the words or nouns. I use it every day and it is helping.
