keeps improving, very good overall

Excellent for building personal language study. Have used the program for years, and then when version 3.0 came out, it was almost worthless for a while, but now it is back up and running, with some new features that I really like, like i-cloud syncing. Of course when you deal with this stuff you always want more, I think that it is better than BYKI though it is not cross platform. It is much easier to move and organize chapters and lessons than BYKI is. Also ivocab 3 makes it much easier to import and export data than BYKI, which costs more than $50 if you buy the editable version. overall very good program.

Nice Vocab Program

It integrates well with the other iOS versions. It still says "ProVoc" on the testing window, since this is just a modified version of that freeware program.
