This would be a good app if it had more words...

This would be a good app if it had more words. Like at least 10 times more words. It's called a "slang" dictionary, but except insofar as much Yiddish is treated as slang in the English-speaking world it's really just another dictionary... without a lot of words.

The interface is much nicer than other Yiddish dictionary apps and the quiz could be very good if it didn't repeat words so often due to the paucity of words/definitions. There are a few interface quirks, such as the lack of an obvious way to advance from one question to the next in the quiz and that should be addressed beyond this 1.0 release.

For all of its deficits, the $2.99 price tag is absurd. This app does not provide $2.99 worth of value at this time. I suggest waiting until the author adds many more words and fixes the quiz before even considering purchasing this app.

Great app, maybe add in some more features?

Hey, I really enjoy the app, but do you think you could maybe add in how to pronounce the words, an example of them in use during a sentence, and maybe even add more words? Thanks, once again I love the app!

When you open the app at first it doesn’t say what to do. The dictionary doesn’t have any words. I am very confused
