Terribly written content

Nice function of the app but the content seems to be written by an intern who barely knows proper English and sentence structure and even worse some of the answers are not correct. This app needs a serious review and edit from someone with better knowledge. Disappointing for the price and I would recommend trying other study guides before using this.

Developer Response ,

Be careful with the ‘try 3 days for free’

I touched that line when I opened the app for the first time. I thought it will give me a 3 day trial. Then it directly charged me $13+. I want a refund but seems no way to get the money back. Very back first time experience.
