Ratings and Reviews
More of a proof of concept than an app.
I think I see what the developer is trying to do. It's an interesting concept ...to tie together online resources like dictionaries, pronunciation, Quizlet, etc to help you create lists of words to learn. Problem is, this app appears far from finished, it's alpha at best. Not worth even trying at this point.
As others said, "useless"
Pointless app, tried to "Learn" and "Quiz", and wouldn't let me do either. I was going to test it out with the 30-word limit before buying, but since it doesn't even work, then I'm not even going to buy it. Going to have to stick with the Anki apps.
This is not a real program, but only a “Lite” version. Not only does this lite version severely limit the ability to learn anything, but it is not user friendly. The app designer seems to have failed to research learning techniques for languages.
Don’t waste your time even downloading this.
