- Biblical Hebrew (first 300 words with audio)
- Latin (extracted from the Summa Theologiae)
- Create your own lists through the website http://vocab.idoms.org/
- Many parameters are adjustable
- A brief summary after each exercise
- You can create your own custom lists from the words in the App
- Optionally practice both ways
I wrote this program because of my own need to train my vocabulary. What I find most important is a combination of repetition and automatic progress. This App tries to achieve that. With the use of a point system. The App registers how well you know a word. If you know a word good enough, it will only ask it once in a while for the sake of repetition. When a word is classified as known, a new word is added to the next exercise.
A lot of the parameters of the App are adjustable, and this makes it a very flexible flashcard application.
The first 50 words are for free to test the App, after that vocabulary sets can be purchased using In-App purchases. The revenue I use to pay towards my development cost such as Developer License etc.
Please be aware that you need to use the restore purchase function if you want to use the App on multiple devices. This is for free (you will never be charged twice for the same list) and the button can be found at the bottom of the list with vocabulary sets.

A really helpful app!
I bought this application to help develop my Greek vocab. I've been learning for a few years and have always found grammar easier, so this was my way of honing vocab and extending it.
It's been great. You get 50 words of Greek and of Hebrew for free, and it's only £1.49 for all the words of the Greek NT (except for the hapaxes). It helpfully tracks your progress, both as a whole of all the words available, as well as on each term. You start on 50 points on each, get reduction for getting it wrong or not knowing, and then +10points every time you get it right. When it gets to 100 it introduces a new term and only includes the words on 100 occasionally.
It's the best money I've spent on learning Greek vocab. I've tried paper flashcards and other things, but this app is really handy, does the tracking work for me, and more importantly helps me learn Greek!
Only critique would be lack of pronunciation for the Greek terms (currently just Hebrew). It's not necessary, but it would add a bit extra. I'm looking forward to new vocab packs coming out (e.g. for all the vocab in Mark's Gospel or something).
A satisfied customer!
Very useful and effective
This is my favourite app for learning vocabulary for Biblical languages. It introduces words in order of descending frequency, so that you learn the most common words first. As you progress it uses a scoring system to make sure you learn words correctly before introducing new words. Furthermore, words you know well are occasionally brought back into exercises to refresh your long-term memory.
If you're serious about learning Greek and Hebrew, this could well be the best app to get.
Note, the app is free, but you need to pay for the word lists (£1.49 for each). I think it's worth it, and this gives you the option of only choosing one language if you prefer to pay less.
There are a couple of improvements that would raise this app to 5 stars, including seamless iCloud synchronisation between devices (there have been issues with this feature so far). I would also like to see my progress more easily (you can check your progress, but it isn't immediately obvious how to do that). However, the app is effective and certainly worth using. Highly recommended.
I've only just bought this but am really impressed with it. My main plus point is the value for money that takes Greek down to 2 word occurrences and Hebrew down to 5 times. I also like the way it intelligently adds in more words as you learn the more common ones. I haven't yet seen a way to manually control the frequency of words that you can study and this would be a nice extra for the future.
