* Fixed bug that prevented translation sentences from being displayed
Great, useful concept - a few nagging bugs that don't inhibit use
The concept is wonderful with a straightforward interface - exactly what I was looking for. A few things that make this 4 rather than 5 stars:
-- repeatedly pressing vocalization results in a message to fix some things, an option to suppress this message would be great, sometimes I just want to hear the word several times.
-- first time thru quiz, score is always 61 and then many times ejected from app after pressing continue. Sometimes after pressing continue quiz continues ... Not sure why
-- when quiz favorites is selected, there are very few times that all words are quizzed. To overcome this, I keep going back into app after being ejected.
NONE of the comments above keep me from using the app, so thanks for providing it!! If there is time to fix the anomalies it would be grand. Thank you!!!
Finally fixed most bugs, works well
The sept functions really really well now, my only complaint is that the quiz timer doesn't really show progression, you can only hear that the tapping is getting louder, but the bar at the top does not move tell you it's getting close to the end see you don't know when your time is up, however all the other stuff that used to be broken now is fixed so it's actually a really great app again and I'm using it regularly!
This app is excellent for expanding your vocabulary! I love that you are able to choose which sources for daily words you would like to view so you can choose how many words there are per day. The quiz feature is fantastic and adds the new words you learn each day in with old words from previous days which helps to keep all the words you are learning active in your brain. Highly recommended!!
