This is my upgraded review. Beer has been diligent on correcting issues with the app. What I've discovered is that the settings really determine some of the problems that arise. Get the settings right and the whole app works like a dream. For instance, make sure that every box in Special Characters is ticked off and the appropriate punctuation mark included.

My crashes occurred because one of the marks somehow got deleted. The slideshow had stopped working. As soon as I ticked the "Use character" box and inserted the semi-colon (;), the slideshow worked like a dream.

So now, the app is running like Beer intended. Thanks for a great app because it's helping me attain Greek and Hebrew reading fluency.

This beer's for you, Beer!

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your kind and motivating words. Did you already send a mail to my support address explaining the missing points?

Thank you very much for the update! Really appreciate it!

BTW: the bug you describe was fixed in the last update. Are you sure that still is a problem?

Best regards,
Christian Beer

Customization is key

Learning a language is a long and labor instensive venture and for this reason I appreciate how customizable iVolcabulary is. All the options may seem intimidating, but one-size-fits-all vocab trainers really aren't what you want for a years long project.

Great App

Still use this app pretty often. Very good for controlling which flashcards you want to see (by spaced repitition, or by flags, or by labels). I'm glad they keep it up to date with the lastest software updates on Mac/iPhone
