OK, but confused; falsely advertised
0. I give it 2 stars for false advertising -- By the app's own count there are only 1107 words (10 lessons with ca. 100 words)-- not 2,000 as advertised (If they count the example phrases perhaps more, but "racing car on an auto racing track" is not really one of the most frequent phrases in Arabic--it gets a mere 6 hits in google).
1. Were not 0., they Overall the App is OK (i.e. 3 stars); it has no real Arabic features (e.g. toggled vocalization; verb form practice, etc.), and is just box applied to Arabic vocabulary--I think you'd be better off using a generic vocab program, and add the vocabulary despite the work.
2. As a bit of an Arabist, the Egypt top 100 word list seems a bit odd in that it has products, but doesn't really cover the egyptian colloqualisms
3. The spoken vocalization sometimes doesn't match the written word, which is expected from native speakers with various dialects, but odd for non-native speakers who are first learning MSA.
4. This is not a vocabulary program in that it keeps few stats, is self-judged, and offers no spaced repetition.
5. The interface is a bit awkward; the multilevel drilldown menus is reminiscent of iPhone, but unusual on Mac OS X.
6. The audio is hard to make-out in places even for someone with a decent phonetic ear.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
