This app is invaluable for studying Greek, but you have to keep a couple of things in mind:
1. To set it up requires the desktop version of Logos Bible Software. This isn't a big deal for me because I already use and love the software, so the setup was pretty easy, but if you're looking for a completely stand-alone solution, you need to look elsewhere.
2. The app locks up ALOT. By alot, I mean every time you shut down and restart the app, it locks up. I've gotten used to killing it as a matter of habit now, and it works okay if you leave the card view and go back to the list of stacks before leaving the app, but if you happen to leave the app while viewing a card, you'll have to force quit the app to get it to respond. This should be fixed.
3. If you've marked all of your cards as "got it" then the app will start reviewing all of your cards for you. If you subsequently miss one though, beware of marking it as such, because then that will be the only card the app will show you, at least until the next day. Use "got it" sparingly, and only when, as the tutorial says, you REALLY know the word.
That said, I still recommend this app. The layout is clean and having the cards in digital format is far better than having hundreds of notecards to carry around.
An Excellent Help With One Major Flaw
The most important thing to understand with this app is that is an extension to your Word List documents in Logos. It is NOT a standalone flash card app. Armed with a proper understanding of what this app is, you are free to enjoy this as the excellent tool it is. It is as powerful as the Word Lists with which you use it. You can easily create your own lists in Logos. It is also possible to share word lists with others—and to leverage existing lists such as those for many major language grammars. An additional excellent feature is the ability to group words in sections and then control which sections will be actively worked. For example, you can focus only on the current chapter of your grammar or all chapters up to the current chapter.
The primary weakness of this app is, however, a pretty big one in my opinion. The app suffers from very poor randomization (shuffling). Because words appear in the same order, you can very easily end up unwittingly memorizing the LIST of the words rather than the words themselves. Hopefully a future update will fix this problem, but since the app does not seem to be frequently updated, I would not hold my breath.
I’ve been using this app for almost 5 years now and I still love it!!!!!!! Not sure what the other guy is having problems with because I use it on my iPhone and I’ve never had any problems with it. Yep.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
