Ratings and Reviews
It has potential, but is not useful yet...
I am an English teacher. I bought this app thinking I could use it to help students who were struggling with a particular concept. The tests are set up well, but are full of errors or ambiguous questions. Several answers are only deciphered if you have context outside the sentence or can guess well. The BIGGEST concern I have is the fact that a program claiming to test knowledge on grammar has so many grammar mistakes in the actual questions. For example, they'll ask about adverbs but have mispellings, missing articles (a, an, the), or incorrect verb forms. That is simply not effective in helping someone who is learning or refreshing grammar.
Overall, this is a good application. I wish it had a few more features built in. Under settings it would be nice to have the option to turn off providing answers during questions with the A icon. As a teacher, I'm using this application with my students and they want to hit the answer button if they don't know the answer off the top of their heads. Another feature that would be nice is to control the difficulty level. If the developer could include an easy, medium, and difficult levels then students who are advanced won't be wasting as much time doing questions that are really easy to them. Right now every category has random questions that come up when practicing. Thanks and I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing a few more updates.
I was expecting a little review for my grammar final, but this app is filled with super simple questions. I know which preposition to use, but maybe explain prepositional phrases or anything other than, and I quote, "If you have a question ____ the seminar dates, ask your immediate supervisor (choices about, around, under, and behind)." I guess this app is good for anyone learning to speak the language, but don't expect the grammar rules to be explained. Complete waste of 5 dollars, not for me.
