What good?

I agree with the previous review. What good is a test if you don't know which question you missed? How can you then use this app as a tool for learning? In order to check your answers, you must know which question was wrong, or you will have a lot of frustrated students.

I downloaded this app multiple times, but the only thing it would show was a black screen. I have looked at other reviews and a lot of people have the same problem. I downloaded it on my sister's iPad after it wasn't working on my dad's, it did work, but there was only half the screen so you can't do anything. This app is a waste of time and I suggest to just stick to them books.

I have several "Painless" books by Barron that I reference throughout the school year. I was hoping that the app would be similar to the books; however, the app will not fit the screen properly and cuts off half the question and answer choices. Very disappointed.
