An attractive alternative to Excel

I needed to make a glossary for studying vocabulary but wanted something built for vocabulary instead of just making lists with Excel or another spreadsheet program. I have not used the quiz feature (yet) so I cannot talk about that, but otherwise the program offers everything I was looking for - term, translation, comments, ability to categorize terms in a variety of manners, support for more than one dictionary, etc. My only problem so far is that the program does not save your preference settings when you close it. This is a small thing, but it would be nice to have it remember my last saved settings (for example, having the word list alphabetized, and under preferences automatically opening a new word sheet again after adding a word). The program also erased a large amount of comments I had added to terms without warning, not sure what happened there but it hasn't happened a second time.

Another good point is that the program opens very quickly, which is useful for when I'm in class or reading and want to quickly add a term before I forget. I would definitely recommend this program for anyone looking for a clean, intuitive way to organize new vocabulary. I hope it continues to be updated.

I was looking for that kind of app for a while

I wanted to learn Spanish and needed an app to train my vocabulary. I found this one and looks that it provides the best value on the app store. The app is fully customizsable, you can manage and organize your dictionary in pretty every way you imagine. The app offers great syncrhonisation feature which allows me to take my vocabulary on my iPhone and train wherever and whenever I want, now waiting at the dentists doesn’t need to be boring and inproductive! Also the app is quite smart, it shows you which words you need to train right now (based on your progress) and even offers pronunciation for almost every word I tried. I was looking for that kind of app for ages, thanks!

Great Learning Tool!

I have wanted to learn French for such a long time but i have been putting it off. Until one day, i saw this app in the app storeand decided why not try it? I was delighted to see that it made the language very easy to learn and arranged all the words in a very nice way. Its a great app and will definately help you learn!
