Looks really excellent!
This is exactly what I have been trying to find. It has everything one needs to build vocab. I'm really happy with it so far. The vocab trainer lets you pick your own words and has several built-in decks (days of the week, time, numbers, basic adjectives...). The Leitner word repitition trainer is a really nice feature that spaces words out so you can learn larger decks in organized stages. I like being able to make my own flashcard decks and have a dictionary all in one, and the fact that every word has an audio recording is awesome. I'm buying the full version (more words).
The one thing it needs is articles for nouns. In German, it's very important to learn the gender of each noun and the app has no way to train for this. Also, I don't know why this was so hard to find! It's so good and well made but I couldn't find it for a long time and few people have written reviews so far.
